    Hi,

    So I've been following a few high traffic keywords over time to see what is going on and working. BTW spam is still working great. Mentioned by others here, but on page one for viagra there is a youtube video someone is ranking with GSA - hence the noText anchors linking to it. Off topic for sure.

    Anyway, in my travels I found a site with almost 1k .edu links. Obviously it would be irresponsible of me not to scrape them all for my own use. Assuming I can get SB to post to them (lots of comment links), my question is what would you do with a whole ton of .edu links? OBL on these pages are high. Lots of them have been heavily spammed. Should I be looking to throw these in as Tier 2 links and save the good .edu's with no OBL's for my Tier 1? How would you guys recommend using these, if at all, given the amount of OBLs?

    Ideas muchly appreciated!

    Spread them across several tier 2 websites.

    Don't let other peoples work habits effect your own. Everyone has their own unique style of working. Some people would blast those on their first tier, some people second tier, other people wouldn't use them at all.

    I use 3 different styles of backlinking myself.

    1) High quality, authority sites that get only the best of links and 0 spam whatsoever (I use all network links for those). Thats for my long term safe sites that generate 80% of my income.

    2) Medium quality sites or videos that get a decent first tier, then I spam the shit out of the second and 3rd tier. So with those edu links I'd use them on the second or 3rd tier.

    3) Medium quality churn & burn sites or videos - these get spam on every tier. And I autospin everything. :)

    So the answer to this question is only something you can answer. You have to determine what type of project you're doing. Do you want a clean and green authority site? Do you want a more risky churn and burn site? Once you figure out your own priorities, then you'll know the answer.

    Spiderblast, do you use any expired domains or web 2.0s for your authority sites? Or do you go full whitehat?
