    If all .edu links do is add trust ranking to your site, can't I just build a few hundred of them one time to my main domain and be done. Do they have benefit building them over and over again to inner pages/posts?

    I use edu/gov links for both the main site as well as inner pages. Logically I think adding it to the main site should work, but I link to inner pages as well as they are more optimized for the keywords.

    I Think its best to be consistent with everything you do. I would keep trying to get a regular amount of .edu back links each month and spread them over the inner pages and also to the main domain. For myself when ranking sites Esp for competitive keywords I've always had more success with being consistent.

    You don't need them. But it's always good to have them along with other non-edu links so that the backlinking looks natural.

    You can spread it, when building first time itself. If not building links for inner pages is also help because , that is different page.

    Spread links across your entire site.

    Do about 70% of the links to your home/index and then 30% to your inner pages, this will look more natural.

    Best is do on inner pages, because that authority backlinks give a fast boost to inner pages and stick your site to your positions. As compare to home page, competition on home page is more so inner pages are good to be optimized

    one things i learned since i first started doing seo. If you can get a back link, never decline. Get as many links as you can, . edu, .gov, .info, .com, etc....just create a link diversity

    Remember that Google considers every single page individually. That is not a secret anymore and probably has never been. Therefor, build .edu to inner pages, with optimized keyword text.

    Actually, guy call Sweetguyz offers a good service for this, can recommend it personally.

    Thanks for your appreciation to our service.

    The best is to target inner pages as they have less competition and EDUs have more power so they will take your inner pages to top as fast as rocket. We our self experience this scenario and have greater effect on inner pages as compare to home page.

    As well it costs less to rank inner pages as compare to homes

    One of the most overlooked part of ANY SEO strategy is forgetting to link your internal pages.

    TheRealRazzy nailed it, I also breakdown a 70%/30% combo of backlinking. I highly recommend it. It gets the bots indexing your site faster, plus gives you the ability to rank well for more keywords than whats on the homepage.

    So, to sum it up, use more than just EDU to deep link. Use whatever other links you acquire to also hit the internal pages.
