    I just finished browsing a BHW thread where supposedly a .edu site was offering free blogs. Now, of course its being spammed like hell so it won't be long til its shut down.

    Anways, I'm a university student and I just found out I get my own .edu subname. What do you guys think I should do with it? Keep in mind that its going to be directly tied to my name and school account so I can't do anything controversial. But, I can leverage the great SEO juice somehow.

    Yes I know it is so much easier and tempting so I'll go with SleepieGirl's idea. I guess I can link to a clean cut blog about increasing intelligence and having a Lumosity affiliate link or something.

    .edu is not stronger then any other ending

    its only that most edu sites have mass backlinks from trusted sources and are aged.
    A Blog on an edu subdomain is most likely not stronger then your blogsport blog ;)

    Sure I would love to sell edu blog subnames if it wasn't for the fact that my identity is so attached to it. I cannot afford to lose my graduation ceremony because of all the V!agra and C!alis linking to my name.

    If I can get a good edu spot elsewhere I'll be sure to let ya'll know

    What is the main .edu doamin's pagerank? If 4 or above, see how if it transfers to your subdomain. If it does, put up relevant content sell a few links, that YOU pre-approve, so the uni will not decapitate you.
