    How on earth does somebody manage to get 14 edu blogs? They write their own articles and post whatever they like to them, putting links in as they please. I have checked out all of these blogs and NONE of them have a way of contacting them so I can only assume they are all owned by the same person.

    If I was looking for something similar, how much would it cost me?

    Which one are they?

    I guess they bought them from either students who had access to it,
    or professor's, but I doubt the last one.

    Student's often can create blogs on their uni, I bet some of them sell them.

    I have PM'ed you one of the blogs.

    Looks like you might be right, although I have been searching around and can't find anywhere where you can purchase blogs like these. Maybe you have to get in contact somehow.

    Post two or three EDUs for us to examine and we can possibly give you a better idea of what is going on. More than likely, it is a professor doing SEO work. lol

    If I am not mistaken, there were some .edu websites for rent on this forum itself. Or maybe I'm trippin'

    Are they all at the same university or are they at different schools? If its 14 universities...that is impressive. Could you PM the urls as well...I'd love to see what they were able to accomplish.

    Oh really? I'll have a search around. Hopefully they won't be too expensive.


    All different universities. PMing you an example now. The rest are pretty much the same articles that have been spun.

    No, they weren't actuall EDU's.
    It was just domains like edu.pl.

    But after I looked at one of the site's, yeah it's definitely a blog, created by a student who knows about SEO.

    any joy from the people who requested sight of the url's or has this thread been given up now? either way, without knowing how much content is being posted on the blogs, its difficult to make any suggestions, but are these wiki blogs that we're talking about here - i.e. could they have been created by something like wikiPRO?
