    For every 500 "posting" .edu backlinks, only 2-5 will ever actually post. Why is this, could anybody explain? And could anybody help me decide on a new method for harvesting .edu backlinks (or any type of backlink) more effectively? I have no real strategy, I use the site:.edu custom footprint with WP blogs, but I know there are certain methods to use to harvest backlinks effectively after I've harvested, commented, etc. to do with trimming to the root etc., but I can't find them again. If anybody could provide me with any info I'd be grateful, thanks in advance

    There is a good chance many of those blogs are moderated and your comments are not getting approved. Perhaps you could try better quality comments, even niche-specific ones and hope they pass moderation. Those blogs are also likely not configured for auto-approve, which is why AA lists are so desired for SB. Try manually commenting on some of the blogs to see where your process might be breaking down. Good luck.

    Oh of course, and AA .edu would be even more difficult to find, considering a good deal of .edu are made by IT depts or are not designed by the educational facility, god damn I'm stupid. Thanks for clearing that up.

    Could anybody suggest a decent footprint? I've harvested 112 AA .edu (after scraping through about 50K of .edu blogs), what do I do after trimming them down to the root to harvest the other pages on the site?

    That actually is not a bad percentage. What I would do is check them after a week and see if any more of the moderated ones have been posted. Then run a PR check on all the ones that have not been posted and take those urls with actual PR and try doing those manually to see if you can get links on some of them as well.

    Do you use WP or blogengine blogs when harvesting? Just out of interest
