In a Cre8asite Forums post, a user asks an important question for a link building campaign: how do you get links from .edu sites? As you know, .edu sites have a higher inherent trust and as such can help boost your rankings if you can get that coveted link.
A lot of good ideas were thrown out by members and moderators, including:
- "One of the easiest ways is to create content that fills an informational void that an edu site might be interested in linking to." (Bill Slawski, administrator)
- "Another way is to search for student blogs and see if you can connect with one." (yannis, member)
- "If you see a competititor with .edu links go to those .edu pages and see what they are linking to." (EGOL, administrator)
