    I was looking through some backlinks for a random website and one of the backlinks was from a Cali elementary schools website. The website was real and had recent, school related content on the front page. The page with the backlinks had over 6k of them, and it could only be accessed with a URL. I also saw a .edu website that did that, and from what i heard .edu links are very good for SEO.. Ive seen a few other similar cases and i was just wondering how this happens. In the schools case, is someone who has access to the website secretly selling backlinks? Where do people even look to get in on these backlinks?

    Context of the website? I doubt this was a porn site getting a link from an elementary school. If they donate to the school or something like that, that may be how they got there link. We'll need more context before understanding how they got a specific link.

    You have to buy it. If you are looking for a search. Takes a long time and it is not effective for the money. Because time is money

    I've seen similar and it's always been hacked websites. I've seen pretty decent ones (state.gov) and that's what first tipped me off how it was happening.
