What is EDU backlinks ?
EDU backlinks refer to links obtained on website domains with EDU extension.
To most people, .edu and .gov are just another top level domain . But to SEOs, those three letters mean so much more . While many people in the SEO world doubt the fact that search engines give .edu and .gov site backlinks special superpowers, we can all agree that sites on .edu and .gov domains have the age, trust and domain authority every link builder loves. However, landing these links without resorting to spammy wiki pages or forum profiles is a challenge.
With GOV backlinks, EDU links are the “holy grail” of a netlinking strategy . Indeed, EDU domains, and therefore EDU backlinks, have authorithy and trust in the eyes of Google and other search engines.
EDU is a restricted TLD, organizations have to be an acredited post-secondary educational institution to postulate for it.
