    Get 100's of .edu backlinks by using Google to find blogs and wiki's

    Even tho mattcutt's says there is no weight given to .edu or .gov links, I think their is and I'll quickly outline how You can find backlinks yourself.

    you all should know that google search has a few commands that will get info on your site.. such as

    site:blackhatworld.com

    will ( in theory ) show all indexed pages from the url "blackhatworld.com"

    Google announced a few years ago that this command is messed up, but even today, you can get a good idea of your indexed pages in google.

    another one is

    link:blackhatworld.com

    this will show all backlinks that google has indexed for your site..

    and there is
    inurl:keyword

    this will show all links with "keyword" in the url

    okay, to the fun stuff..

    If you have ever been to wikipedia, you know that anyone can edit a page.. Usually it'll get kicked back to the default setting, but it is possible to edit them.. Some ppl don't keep their wiki's as strict..

    go to google and put this in the search box.

    Code:
    site:.edu inurl:wiki
    you'll find a bunch of .edu sites that a student or class has added a wiki.. Sometimes you can find good pages to leave your link on.

    and then, if you want to get a little more targeted, use this command

    Code:
    site:.edu inurl:wiki "blackhatseo"
    and change the "blackhatseo" to "yourniche"

    if you know a better way of sorting these, please post them..

    here are a few that will find blogs.

    Code:
    site:.edu inurl:blog
    so this shows a bunch of blogs.. but you don't want to waste time searching for blogs you can comment on.. So you narrow it down with this.

    Code:
    site:.edu inurl:blog ?post a comment?
    and sometimes the blog owner has closed the comments, so you want to search this to narrow the closed blogs out.

    Code:
    site:.edu inurl:blog ?post a comment? -"comments closed?
    okay, so this is getting close to the perfect starting spot, well your wrong..
    Some blogs make you login to comment.. so lets remove those too.

    Code:
    site:.edu inurl:blog ?post a comment? -"comments closed" -"you must be logged in?
    okay, we have a pretty good list of sites that are available for us to comment on

    but wait, lets narrow it down to blogs about your niche..

    Code:
    site:.edu inurl:blog "post a comment" -"comments closed" -"you must be logged in" "art"
    Okay, it looks like you have enough ammo to do some damage..

    Be Careful with this info, if used properly, I'm sure you can find a dozen quality spots to add your site

    Good luck
