Default Some Points To Discuss About .edu & .gov Backlinks.

.edu tdl for an authorized educational website and they can register a domain with .edu extension. As the sites don't use any spamming techniques and have limited outbound links and of-course no bad link neighborhood. If someone manages to get the links from these educational websites and leaves a positive impact on the search engine result.

Same, a .gov backlink is from a website with the government websites. They carry some authority and weight and naturally can be very strong backlinks to have. If you can pay for any kind of advertising on a .gov domain name, just go with it.

How to build .Gov Links:
> Write about a Government Agency or local Politician
> Get a Government Contract, not possible for everybody but can try.
> Do Comment or leave some good reviews on gov Blogs / forums.
> Help people on the Tourism Boards & Educational forums.
> Look for foreign government agencies

In the recent time, there are many changes in the search engine algorithms and this is a myth. Actually a backlink which has High PR and coming from good link neighborhood, always put a positive impact on the campaign.

Well, if you are building links then make sure that:
> All links are Do-follow, even not dofollow then it gives less impact.
> The domains must have high PR than your website.
> Real Institutions sites. .edu, .gov , .gov.uk, .edu.co, .edu.mx,
> Make sure that the links coming from real educational website.
> Ping all the links.

Thank you

Posting to .gov and .edu domains to get indexed by Google is probably not a good use of your time. With Google's release of Penguin (the latest algorithm), back links are even less important.

The best way to get continued traffic to your site is to provide good content that engages users. Having a web page that people click around on is much better than having a comment posted on a government blog (as it should be).

Nice Information about how to get back links from edu sites. In general, I never focused on how to get back links from these sites. But I think I should as these have a lot of benefits.
