    @mdgweb, Well, but there should be a parameter for a website to be eligible for getting links from .edu sites otherwise any p0rn or viagra sites will also buy links from such site and influence linking process, probably that is the reason what I feel that google is in correct step for taking hard move on both link buying and link selling sites. Just my thought. :)

    I have a site with good relative content for Universities, (resumes and cover letters) I managed to get a few .edu links but had a hard time finding Schools that would allow me a apply for a one-way link. I came across edulinker a site that has researched Universities that are looking to expand their link listings with quality content sites. I applied to 100 Universities and so far received about 14 one way links, all with PR6+ rankings. Each application took a little time, but well worth it!

    The easiest way is to get such link by paying some one, but I would not suggest some one to buy it, let the process go on to get the natural link overtime, yes it is hard to get but it is possible.

  4. Lots of useful tips which one may implement for getting the .edu links but don’t you think Bob that it is not all that easy to get that valuable .edu link which everyone tries for especially before the PR update?
