    Hi, I know it's an easy way to get backlinks, for example, like here: http://spu.edu/student-financial-services/grants-and-scholarships/scholarships/outside-scholarships

    They are linking to a lot of websites offering scholarships. looks like a lot of commercial sites are offering scholarships just to get links.
    What do you think of that? How does it look in the eyes of google?

    I would go for contextual edu instead. Let me know if you want the list. I have it.

    It's much harder that way, no?
