    Hi all,

    I am new to the forum and to SEO, and tried searching but couldn't find anything on the topic. I currently have some old .edu homepages from my old work which are fairly broken. I would like to set it up to point to my soon to be new personal domain, so I can get whatever back links I previously had and utilize the value of .edu to ultimately increase the pagerank for my new personal domain so I can then link out to the other new business projects.

    What is the general consensus on the most effective way to make use of it? Better to do a 301 from the main page to the new page, or should I make a simple static page there with just a single link out to my new domain? Or better yet, should I setup a few static pages with slightly different wording to link out to my new domain?

    A limitation is that I can only run static content on the edu domain, and can't do anything that is explicitly spammy since the admin would be doing me a favor by letting me host.

    Much appreciated,
    Jordan

    That's a gift man.

    If you have your own EDU domains, then just work on making a QUALITY domains.. then smartly throw your other website's links (Make sure to have them on a different Class C IP address)

    Make your .EDU pages greats, whitout 301, then make backlinks to your personal website.
    Off topic : Selling backlinks from your .EDU pages will be a good idea for you.
