2-11-12 SERP Results pictureToday I’m doing more blog comments and building edu type links. For those that have asked I am building between 5 and 15 links per day at the moment purely down to a lack of time on my part to build much more. I am trying to build links from a number of different sources and over the weekend I want to show you two new, very valuable, sources of traffic that can help you boost your rankings significantly.

You can see the site is creeping around the rankings for these keywords and I am hoping that these links together with the things over the weekend will make a difference. I’ve added another piece of content to the site today which will help too. I’ll also get a new site sorted based on your comments this weekend too.

I’ve been asked about how to find .edu, .gov and .mil blogs to comment on. This is pretty easy to do and the same principles as blog commenting applies, but you need to be extra good with your comments as these blogs tend to be much more heavily moderated than normal blogs. A high percentage of comments are not approved from these blogs.

Now for anyone who is wondering:

.edu = educational establishment
.gov = government body
.mil = military

These are prized by marketers and taken seriously by Google because they are not the sort of links any old Joe can go out and get. I couldn’t go and register a .edu, .gov or .mil site, so you can see the value of these as authority links.

Finding these sites is easy, just type something like this into Google where you change .edu for .gov or .mil as you see fit.

site:.edu “your keyword” “powered by wordpress”
site:.edu “your keyword” “leave a comment”

There are a lot more you can use (see below) but these are two good ones to start with. Make sure you skim read the post and leave a comment that is relevant and informative and when it is approved you’ll get a quality link back to your site.

As well as blogs and forums you can also post on wiki’s on some .edu sites. This gives you the chance to post an article to a .edu wiki which includes a link to your site. You can use the following search strings, just adding “your keyword” to each one.

site:.edu inurl:wiki
site:.edu inurl:MediaWiki_talk
site:.edu “Log in / create account”
site:.edu wiki

These are pretty good for links and can be very valuable for you!

Ok here’s a very valuable bonus for you and shhhh … don’t tell anyone about this … this is a big big secret that I’m only telling you folks and no one else.

Do you want your own free .edu site? Yeah, you don’t have to become a university or college, you can simply sign up and get a free .edu site to create links and contents to your site. Visit Academia and sign up for an account as an independent researcher. Then you will get your own free yourname.academia.edu blog which you can use to create your own .edu links whenever you want.

Cool huh? :)


Finding .Edu Site To Comment On

You can use any of these search strings in Google to find sites to leave comments on. You can replace .edu with .gov or .mil and you can also add in “Your keyword” to each search string to only find relevant sites. Enjoy!
