    Here is the thing. The root domain is www-xxx-edu which has pagerank 7. And they have WordPress-mu hosted at their blog.xxx.edu which has pagerank of 4.

    The individual wordpress blog (home page) is at blog.xxx.edu/~username/

    I happen to be able to create unlimited users (wordpress blogs) on this blog.xxx.edu domain.

    Do you guys think there is some value in this?


    BTW, I wouldn't do anything blackhat or illegal (including adult stuff) on these blogs as that would jeopardize my career.

    is it just one domain name or do you have access to blogs on different edu domains? If on different domain, you can setup your blog and offer service to publish articles on them for a fee. Ofcourse make sure that you don't post garbage.

    This got some potential. Try to make an user, and check the pagerank of a blog entry on this user blog site.

    boobooboy - it's just one edu domain. And it belongs to a state university.

    I don't think big G really cares if it comes from a state university or not, .edu is .edu. It's still worth a bit and people would pay to blog there... I think.

    I consider you to be a student / employee of this university, so I would recommend you to use the blogs only for personal uses (create some powerful backlinks to your site, etc.).

    BUT, you shouldn´t overdo it, not to mention that you should not even consider to sell access to other people to this site (if they "abuse" it in any way you could run danger to jeopardize your career! The universtity will surely have a look at what kind of IP created that account...).

    If you are not a student/employee from there you can do whatever you want with that blogs.. even sell them.. not legal, but won´t jeopardize your career ;-)
