Been following an interesting thread on SEOchat about the importance and power of .edu links. The member who started the thread wanted to know how much an .edu link in Google worth? Well most of us could answer that in our sleep. A LOT. SEO's love them, and we all wish we had a few more .edu links to add to our sites.

The thread quickly turned into interesting ways to get .edu links and what those links might be worth to someone? How much would you pay for an .edu link? Well, the best kind are free, and I have done some edu link building recently and there are a lot of neat ways to gain those links. One of the members mentions he is hiring professor to write articles for him and then letting the professor link the article from his webpage about the article he wrote. Good idea. There are some mentions of paying a student to link to your site from their personal page. The other idea I used several years ago, was to use the universities webspace and setup directories or articles on the space and then link out to websites you have. Worked very well, until they took down the space when I left.
