How To Quickly And Easily Get ".edu" BackLInks in 6 easy tips

How To Quickly And Easily Get [dot]edu BackLInks in 6 easy tips

As a web developer you probably know, these kinds of backlinks are highly desirable and there is some evidence that Google provides extra Pagerank boost to sites with
.edu backlinks.

Q:-So, how do you get backlinks? Simple.All You need to post a comment on a college or university blog and the backlink is automatically created.

Q:-Its over!!NO there is ONE major problem???
and that is finding these blogs

Tip #1: Finding the right blogs.
And the great google is your friend.o,
your search query should start like this:

site:.edu inurl:blog
This tells Google to return a list of results that includes .edu sites that have blogs.

Last time i searched there was 7870,000 search results and that is surely not desirable.

Tip #2: We need to be specific..We need Even More Focus.
There are plenty of closed blogs, These are a waste of our time. So,we need to adjust our search query to look like this:
site:.edu inurl:blog “post a comment”.
It will drop your results to:-
 about 6,880,000 for site:.edu inurl:blog “post a comment”. (0.50 seconds)

 Tip #3:  Cleaning the mess!!
The problem is that many blogs are not open to comments . So, you need to add another parameter  to eliminate blogs that are closed to comments:
-"comments closed"

 Tip #4:  Narrowing your search and make your way..

But, you're not done! You also want to remove search results where the blog forces you to register and log in. Do you have time to create an account!!BIG no..
Here's the (almost) final result:
site:.edu inurl:blog “post a comment” -"comments  closed" -"you must be logged in”
  Tip #5:Almost there
That leads me to the next point. You can add another word or two to your search to get exactly the right
blog. For example, just add “weight loss” to the search string and you'll find .edu blogs that are openly
discussing the topic, where you can post your comments and get excellent backlinks.Result:

site:.edu inurl:blog "post a comment" -"comments
closed" -"you must be logged in" "weight loss"

Tip #6: Notepad (Cut-N-Paste)
When you want to post the same material to many blogs, why not just use a little cut and paste?

FIRST: Keep in mind as you find college and
university blogs, that you really ought to post highly
relevant comments. Go out of your way to provide
value when you post comments, or your comments
will get killed.

SECOND: Do not post the same exact comments on
every single blog. You want to avoid “blog spam” as
you generate your links. If you're not adding value and
your comments are not unique enough, you run the
risk of getting banned by Google.

THIRD: Some people might feel that these tactics are
“black hat” or “gray hat” search engine optimization
(SEO) but our position is that if you are providing
value, there's no reason that you shouldn't enjoy links
from .edu sites.
