    Anyone have any good tips for getting .edu backlinks? I have gotten some from college students I know who have their own webspace at the university, but that is a tiresome and not too effective technique. I want high PR .edu backlinks!

    Write something noteworthy that is relevant to the content on the edu page and they are good about posting a link. Easier to social engineer a professor than an internet marketer.

    Would blog comment links be enough for you? Check out Harro's sticky thread "All about link building" (you can use the search)

    No, PageRank transferred is calculated based on a page's own PageRank.

    EDU Links are believed to be more reputable and thus pass Trust to a site, the more trusted links the more Trust you have. EDU sites also tend to be considered topical authorities, and thus a link from a topical authority passes more relevance.

    You can read about it here if you're into that kind of geeky stuff:
