    One thing to watch out for: On fiverr, a lot of sellers offer .edu backlinks which are actually .edu.xxx which dilutes the value. If you have Scrapebox, you can check large numbers of backlinks quite easily - otherwise just sample by copy/pasting into browser

    You will want to be patient. Some of these sites may take a few weeks to update... I would check in 2-3 weeks. If you need answers now that is very difficult and may not be possible

    If you want to gain trust then don't use .edu backlinks.

    The majority of sites that get any amount of .edu backlinks still only get one or two at maximum, so if your site just happens to instantly gain hundreds of .edu backlinks, wouldn't you think you might get some kind of a penalty?

    For that reason, i stay away from the .edu backlink hype.

    I think Traffic Travis can help you check the page rank and the backlinks..
    get the free version and test it.

    Noone really knows whether google takes these links into account any more than any other link, but personally, i've found that the only reason that .edu links give a bigger rank push than other links is because they generally have a higher page rank than most other pages.

    With .edu's being spammed so much though, you'll probably get a better result from a low outbound link PR2 page than you would on a PR4 .edu page with 5k outbound links.


    Also, you get what you paid for - 200 links for $5 are bound to be low quality.

    I wouldn't use edu backlinks for the main purpose of serp increase but for link diversity

    So what is the best way to get it ranked higher? what backlinks are the best for a newer site?
