Edu + Gov backlinks

I get Matt Carter's newsletter and in a recent edition he did a video about getting backlinks from Edu and Gov forum sites around the world and I was wondering if anyone else had seen this as well.

I got a list of country extensions and a copy of ACE Translator but it seems like a very complexed way of getting links from ip's.

I know Mark was looking into this as one of his guy's at the Affilorama office was trying to get a link of this kind when Mark recorded the 'Behind the Scenes' video.

But I wanted to know if you guys had tried this backlink trick and had any success with it.

Thanks.

This can be a good part of your link building strategy. Unfortunately like anything else with linking, it has been hit hard by the spammers, so it is only a matter of time before Google decides to devalue these links in my opinion. Most of the sites that are doing this are getting them through comments on the blogs on these sites, and they are generally pretty spammy comments.

if you can get links in the content of the site, that would be best. For example, I am working on a local business blog for a friend, and one thing we have done is approach the local university, and we are doing some content for their new students on local businesses and some of the popular hangouts around town.

We approached them from the standpoint of providing some really valuable information to their new incoming students, and were able to get a really good response.

We are not only getting some .edu links for our own site, but giving some free link juice to some of the other local businesses as well. This doesn't upset them at all.

Thanks James

Always a pleasure to read your replies.

Thats what Matt Carter was on about, but he wanted to go to every educational and goverment blog and forum on the planet to do the same thing.

I wonder if the 'White House' would let me leave a link?

Cheers.

All backlinks are helpful as long as they are relevant to your page. There is a blog post on the importance of gov or edu backlinks: Is it pointless getting .gov or .edu backlinks?
