    I am trying to figure out how my competition is getting links on these edu sites when there website does not have much to do with the edu site at all. I provided my two links down below.

    My thinking is this. My competition created some random content on their website just so it would suite the edu website. Could I be right?

    Competition Website Down Below
    https://www.larsonjewelers.com/40-common-minerals.aspx

    Randnom EDU Website
    http://wmich.edu/corekids/Rocks-and-Minerals.htm

    I don't think the edu website is even real but whatever.

    I would really appreciate any insight.

    Not sure why you are doubting the veracity of Western Michigan University: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_Michigan_University

    How am I suppose to give an example if I can't name my competitors?
