How to get .gov and .edu backlinks


Tired of Making Chump Change Online?

Google, at least judging from its last update, favors .gov and .edu backlinks.  They tend to be more liberal with PR and the % of link juice flow when these types of domains are involved.  How to get these backlinks?

Step 1:

Do a Google search using these parameters — inurl:blog “keyword” inurl:blog “keyword”

Step 2:

Filter, Filter, Filter.  This is probably the most important step since you can harvest all the links you want but if they are duds they will do you no good.  The key to good filtering is a strategic objective-based approach.

If you need INTELLIGENT grunt labor (seems like an oxymoron, I know, but that’s why SEO outsourcing exists) to do this cheaply but correctly, click here.


  1. I have read your article carefully, and i checked it with the method you mentioned, but i find that some edu an gov bolgs don’t allow to comment, how can i get the link, thanks!

    Hate to say it but that search will render lots of spam or things that don’t necessarily match up. Filtering will find you a few good ones so you’ll need to some some serious filtering, I was considering writing an app to help with this.

    Thanks for this – I never realised that you could use more than one of the google search parts (use site, and inurl).

    As I am new to SEO this post, and the whole site should be quite useful.

  4. You have to filter. Normally, a list of 1000 .edu and .gov will link about 50 to 100 usable sites. While that seems like a lot of work, if you outsource it you will get the relevant and usable sites you’re looking for.
