This is my first post so I thought I'd post something useful. This is mainly for new people, but perhaps a refresher for the experts out there. How to Find Valuable .EDU and .GOV Blogs for High Value Backlinks: Step 1) Open Google.com Step 2) For .edu blogs search Step 3) Copy/Paste the following EXCEPT really put your niche keyword(s) where it says "Your Niche Keywords" site:.edu inurl:blog ?post a comment? -?comments closed? -?you must be logged in? ?Your Niche Keywords? Step 4) For .gov search you can do same thing site:.gov inurl:blog ?post a comment? -?comments closed? -?you must be logged in? ?Your Niche Keywords? Then, visit each blog in the listing, leave a genuine comment, and then Bookmark it under an EASY TO FIND label such as ".edu highprblogs" or ".gov highprblogs" so you can revisit them. These won't be as much for clickthrough traffic as for SE Ranking.
