    What is the big deal with getting a huge list of pr 0 .edu and .gov sites? Do they weigh more in backlinking?

    Yes, even shitty backlinks from .edu and .gov carry more weight than shitty links from other sites, because of the perceived editorial value of .edu and .gov domains - ie. they're less likely to have total shit on them than other TLDs. Getting stuff hosted on a .edu (eg the hacked .edu sites you see in the pharm serps) is even better.

    I am sure important research pages have lots of incoming pages from .edu and .gov. I doubt google is delisting them

    High PR doesn't necessarily equal Authority; thus it's safe to say Authority websites > High PR websites.

    It's a good thing to have in your linkstrategy. But combine it with other sort of backlinks to gain maximum effect.

    edu and gov might help, but don't expect that it will take you straight to page 1.
