If you’re planning to increase your site’s PR with the help of .edu backlinks, then this tip is for you.
Some people have been advising others to search for blogs in .edu sites, and then leave (hopefully relevant) comments in those blogs.
The thing is, leaving comments with links to your sites are tagged as “no follow”, which means those blog posts will not pass on any pagerank juice back to your site.
This technique, however, is not a waste of time. All you need to do is add the missing ingredient.
When you post a comment, do not put in your site’s homepage as your URL (your clickable commenter’s name will be the URL destination).
Instead, enter as your URL a specific page in your site.
That specific page should contain information that is useful, relevant or entertaining… from the point of view of people visiting the .edu blog you left a comment on. And if it’s interesting enough for the .edu blogger, then that gives you additional points.
You know what’s going to happen next, right? Those university students and bloggers will find your specific page worth blogging about. And when they do make a post about it, the deep link to your page will not carry a “nofollow” tag.
In other words, you will gain a non-reciprocal, direct link to an inner page in your site.
So, what exactly will college students find interesting? Ask your children, friends, and relatives. Or look back into your own history. What did YOU find interesting when you were a student?
Good luck and here’s to gaining increased search engine visibility, with the help of true .edu backlinks.
