I recently submitted some company details on Wikipedia but it got blocked/deleted. I had not even written any content on there.
Does anyone know why some entries on Wikipedia have companies registered and they've not been blocked?
I'd welcome some advice.

Wikipedia is an authoratative encyclopedia and not a public company register nor is it a place to put-up company sales blurb. It is likely that your entry was seen as being commercial and flagged for deletion, it will have been left flagged for quite a period of time before deletion so you sort of missed your chance to debate it's removal.
So, you want a company entry? You can probably have one if a) your company is relevant to appear in an encyclopedia b) you can write a neutral and factual entry for it c) you don't expect to use it for explicit SEO d) you can provide internal links from other articles to your entry.
