How Do You Obtain Links from .edu Sites?

May 2, 2007 - 8:59 am 6 by

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)

These are good tips, and we've already written a bit about getting .edu links in the past but I'm sure you have more tips. If so, please contribute to the Cre8asite Forums post.
