    Are .edu & .gov backlinks more beneficial than .com backlinks. I have heard a lot about this thing; please make me clear.

    Yes! .Edu and .gov backlinks are more trusted by search engines and these links can boost your pagerank and link authority.

    stefanz that is something that a lot of webmasters ask. anup offers a service involving blog commenting on edu websites and I heard his service was really good, go to the links forum to find the topic about that since I cant post links

    I doubt backlinks via blog commenting will carry much weight on .edu or .gov in Google's eyes. And when you see these lists of sites you can comment on they have usually been spammed to death already which will throw up flags at Google HQ.

    To make it beneficial you really need your link in a contextual post.

    .edu and .org are authoritative sites. It carries more weight in search engine. It helps to boost your ranking and PR.

    thats true like any other site if they look like a link farm they will be treated like a link farm
    if you find a nice one then keep it quiet dont announce it that way you minimise links
    and also find ones that relevant to your site
    tbh when someone publishes a list whats the point of following behind a rush of guys posting links its spammed to death and google are not stupid to this plus most of the time its links posted you dont want your site near or associated with

    I wonder if Google might have done something about this already. I'm sure they have noticed those Edu sites get spammed pretty badly. Is there any Mat cutt videos about this ?

    It can't effect a lot unless you are heavily relaying on Edu links. What they can do it put a zero value to Edu links so there won't be any seo gains from those.

    I have yet to see the effectiveness of edu and gov links. I have not tried getting them. There are services offering all sorts of edu profile links but have yet to try for one of my sites.

    Interesting thread.

    I've personally never noticed a difference between blog comment links from .gov / .edu vs .com. All much of a muchness if you ask me.

    However, I can tell you from experience that text links, and contextual in content links definitely DO have a very powerful effect when on .gov / .edu domains vs .com. ESPECIALLY if the page has PR.

    These links are not actually as hard to find as you might think, but here's what I've learned:

    If you want QUALITY links (in content, not blog comments or profiles) you have to PAY for them. There's no other way around it. Unless you know a webmaster for a .gov / .edu site.

    There's a few non-public market places out there that advertise these links, and they're usually quite cheap.

    Just came across a text link marketplace yesterday where two students were selling text links on PR5/PR6/PR7 & PR8 PAGES that were on .gov / .edu domains for $1 a month each.

    That's insanely cheap if you ask me.
