    Hello all,
    hoping to get a bit of info from someone with some experience of edublogs.org

    It used to be a free web 2.0 but now they are set to noindex unless you pay so you can set search engines to be able to crawl your web 2.0 site.

    Edublogs has pretty impressive stats but is it worth paying?

    Do these sites rank or do links from them have any oomph at all for juicing up your money site - or is it better to stick to free web 2.0's?

    Thanks.

    You reckon?

    I thought so too, but wondered if they'd made it pay only due to over zealous spamming - and maybe therefore the effectiveness of links from it might be lessened?

    Can't see it really, it looks a good site.

    Anyway, hope some others with additional thoughts will contribute as well.

    You can pay per month, 6 months, or $40 per 12 months.

    Not many 2.0 properies costs paid account (edublogs.org like). Anyway - if you use them for spam they will ban you even paid account. I found that typepad and livejournal ubgrades are costs, but they banned me for spam :).

    What do you mean by spam ?

    It seems like you can only get one subdomain per $15 a month... no wonder all the expired ones are available

    Stop bumping old ass threads. I think I bought a list off that guy last year some time. The links were fucked as soon as he started selling the lists, I checked a few months later and all of them were wiped off the internet except for maybe 1 IIRC and it was shitty anyway. These edu links are as good as normal web 2.0 links because they will have no extra authority just because they're on an .edu tld. It's still treated as a new domain by Google.

    Although, if you post some informational content on it, it would probably be a lot easier to secure links to the property than a standard web 2.0 address.

    All free Edublogs blogs are no noindex by default in WP Admin and you cannot over-ride it.

    That;s why I removed Edublogs from my Web 2.0 creation service a few months back.

    Creating content on Edublogs is a COMPLETE waste of time.

    agree.
    buying those accounts with no authority and aged links behind you will sure post your target page to page 7 on google

    10s posts with 10s different outbound links - this is spam and will get ban even on paid account. It will costs if you can resell the links, but you can't, because will get bann - the same is with livejournal, wordpress. Most of these (or all) huge old 2.0s will ban for such behavior. You remember xanga alowed it in the pasts and what is happened - out of index.

    Maybe typepad is costs, but noting better than niche domain even on free host.

    agree. been there. doing WP is a waste of time. doing WP blogs without links, even more.

    however blogger does not. I sometimes wonder, if they ban.. at all.
