If you are into Search engine optimization, then you should be very well aware of the fact that back links from edu domains has better link juice than normal backlinks. Google has always treated edu domains with high authority. Most of the edu domains are used by popular school, colleges, universities and education organizations. So Google believe that the content from those sites will be highly informative.
It is widely believed that one quality back link from a edu domain is better than getting 10 back links from various.com domains. It is not easy to get back links from edu sites. We cannot implement our traditional methods like link exchange. Not a single edu webmaster will be willing to exchange links with a commercial site. So we have to think out of the box and build links. One method which is highly used is blog commenting. But this method is highly over saturated and most of the edu blogs are already spammed with useless comments.
There is no meaning in getting a linkback from a edu page which has more than 10 outbound links [OBL]. So we have to think wisely and look out for other methods. Apart from blog commenting, another approach is to make use of guestbook feature in most of the college and university websites. Again they are a bit spammed so the link juice value will be less.
So with both the traditional and new techniques being over used, we have to go for another mechanism called profile creation. Most of the edu website out there will have a high pr and that adds to value. Those college and university websites offer profiles being created for professors, students, alumni, etc. We can make use of this facility and create profiles with a anchored hyperlink to our site.
