is it possible somehow to easily use google docs as a wiki? I mean, I create a first document, then add a link to another one and so on, so the procedure is easy and fast and the different docs files are esaily organized

yes.

but you have to manually keep track of the urls to the documents. and you have to setup manually the edit permissions per document as well.

consider using sites.google.com.

Google Docs does not make a good wiki.

  • Optimized for printed page, not viewing online (page margins, document margins)
  • Always in edit mode
  • No mechanism to dynamically embed content or especially lists of documents in another document
  • No friendly URLs for documents
  • Does not link documents nearly as easy as in a wiki (requires interaction with menus/mouse and copying full URLs to documents)
  • Does not support text zooming fully (appears to work, but try it, hit CTRL-+ and some document components often don't display properly. Basic documents work fine.)
  • No cross-document consistent styling
