Title: .EDU LINKS and SEO

Google Says EDU Links Are Not Better Links

Jan 29, 2008 • 7:41 am, by Barry Schwartz

Googler, JohnMu, wrote in a Google Groups thread that links from EDU domains are not in itself better links than .com or .net links. John said:

    In general, I would like to add that no, backlinks from .EDU domains generally do not get "additional credibility from Google"

I believe this may be one of the first times we have official confirmation in writing from a Google representative that EDU links are not anymore valuable then other types of links.

Yup, edu links are authority websites that google consider as highly recommended because we all know that these websites provide educational information. :)
