    Do EDU/GOV backlinks need to be niche targeted, because it's pretty much impossible to find EDU adult niche ^^

    I don't think so that it's impossible to find Edu niche links, or I don't think so that backlinks need to be niche targeted? ...

    You only need to find .edu, it don't matter it is related to your niche or not the same goes to High PR Domains, it don't matter if they are related to your niche, the only thing is to get backlink/make backlink from them in sensible way (No spam).i highly doubt you will find .edu / gov domains that is related to your niche unless it is something related to education or government.

    Hope that helped, that's all i know from reading and experimenting.if any senior or experienced member can help you out that will be great.

    This is mz thought on EDU links-

    1. EDU links on EDU sites that are open for everyone, with 1000s of spammy links are not good.
    2. Links on EDU sites where you have to use your brain/connections/influence to get a link is a good thing. This means that other people can't get a link there and Google knows which EDU sites are spammed and which are spam free

    I will say NO. You can easily find gov and edu links but it will take time and time consuming too.

    Those domains are very spammed already, so it is bad idea to search them.

    I do not think that it would be too terribly difficult to find an edu or gov site that addresses porn. There are several. It might take a thoughtful and relevant comment to get your link up.

    Google has become smarter at detecting EDU spam and unsurprisingly .EDU domains are not as powerful as they once were (for your SEO efforts).

    You won't get much value from them unless the OBL for the site is super low (and to find links like that is one in a million).

    Blog comment spam is blog comment spam, even on .edu or .gov domains. If you can get a high quality backlink from one of these domains, it doesn't need to be niche-relevant to be useful. HOWEVER, niche-relevant backlinks are more important than just domain extensions. For example, I'd rather have a backlink from a quality free blog (like mykeywordvariation.wordpress.com) than a spammy .gov.

    Adult links on .edu and .gov will look super unnatural regardless of page content.

    Google wants to sell you adwords. If EDU links threaten their adwords sales, they'll be made toxic.
