    Ok, I just realize that my school allows its student to have their own domain.

    But the URL is this:
    http:// it.EXAMPLE.edu.us/11111/index.html

    11111 is my student ID. The TLD is not .com but .us.
    Will it still have good value?


    P.S: The PR for it.example.edu.us is 4; while the main url example.edu.us is 6.
    And yes, lots of government sites are linking to the main url.

    It still has great authoritative value. However, the PR of the page which gives you backlink is to be considered for me as compare to the domain PR.

    according to matt cutts, they don't credit .edu any more than the other. But it's the number/type of links that link to that specific page which counts.

    we all know whatever he says is always not true. and this is one of those cases (though not entirely false)
