    That's a pretty healthy number. Maybe you should see what effect that produces, and you'll have at least have a baseline if you decide to do more down the road.

    Definitely stop, you do not need many .EDU links at all. These are rare links found on the web so they need to be treated that way when you are doing our link building campaign.

    You should aim for a small % of your overall links to be .EDU I would say 5-10% max so then it still looks natural when Google analyses your sites backlinks.

    I would stop and try and build some other type of links.

    It depends on your overall link profile. If you have 100k links and only 5k are .edu, then you have space to work :)

    However, obviously don't spend too much time getting .edu links specifically, because they don't give you some mega boost anyway.

    so what will give me mega boost? i did anything, from backlinks 0-4-5 / EDU Backlinks, up to 2000, social bookmark, article submission 30 unique articles + 400 submission, and also 1000 permanent links, but my pagerank still 0, my site is 2 months old.
