I have been doing some testing and studying with .edu and .gov to try to figurate out the best way to get these high authority links. I have found a couple methods and some tips that can get you some .edu link juice. This method is pretty easy and simple and if you do it right the links well stick and be there long term. It is completely Whitehat and a little time consuming but sense its Whitehat it should stick and be effective in the long run. Step 1: Well the first thing you need is SEO for Firefox or the SEO Toolbar, they are pretty simple easy to install just Google it for download link. Most of you should already have one of these plug-ins installed or something like it. If you do you just ignore this step. Step 2: I am assuming you already have a niche and a couple of good keywords. Now you are going to search a very generic term for your niche example: if your niche is ?Internet marketing? then search some thing like ?How to make money online? or ?make money online? Pick a couple of the big guys like ?Blogspot? or ?pearsonified.com.? Step 3: Now if you?re using SEO for Firefox you well see under the search results ?Y! .edu Links? click on it. You well then be taken to yahoo search, there well be a huge list of places were they got .edu links. Search through the list looking for Student Blogs or just a blog, but student blogs are the best. Your goal is to find a post that is really old and that got left out for dry. The older the blogs are the better chance you have of not running into the dreaded ?your comment is waiting moderation.? Step 4: Once you find a blog that allows you to comment with no moderation, well its pretty simple comment on every post. Just in case I mix up the name/keyword up a little so it doesn?t look like I?m spamming. Step 5: This step is the most important, you have to ping it. Most of this blogs are buried deep into the website so if you don?t ping it Google well never find it. Note: The same can be done with but .gov it?s allot harder because less people have .gov links. There you go, you have some .edu link?s I know this isn?t the easiest way to get links but you have to mix it up. Just having a couple edu links well help your blog out allot not just because the .edu links them self?s but because Google well disvalue your links if there not mixed up and scattered all over the place. There are lots of ways to improve this method; I actually found ways to improve it while I was reading it. This is just a basic idea on how to get .emu links, take this method twist it and bend it as much as you can. well anyways, please don't bash me on my grammar I know I don't have good grammar so it wouldn't be anything new.
