My intuition tells me that they are just as valuable as any U.S. .Gov & .Edu backlinks. I just want to get some opinions or proof from your testing about whether the big 3 search engines value, count, like or dislike backlinks from non-U.S. .Gov & .Edu websites. What do you think or know about this? Let's not get into a discussion about the controversy over whether .Edu & .Gov backlinks are any better or not than .Com, .Org, .Info, etc. backlinks. That's not the question. This is just a question about non-U.S. Vs. U.S. .Gov & .Edu backlinks.
