I've been analysing all the sites in my niche and I found this 1 niche site which stood out to me. So this website has 14 .EDU and 1 .GOV links linking to them. These are do-follow, made by discussions and so on. The question is all the .edu and .gov sites are not in the niche, will he get extra link juice or will he get penalized? And should I try doing discussions and profiles to get do-follows from .edu sites? Will it increase rankings or not for a new site?
