Blog Commenting on .edu or .gov Sites

Find Quality Blogs which are Using CommentLuv or KeywordLuv

In the world of SEO, backlinks from other websites are a major factor to move a website up in the search results.

Other factors are quality and unique content, the HTML and site structure as well as the loading time and reliability. — By the way, we offer reliable and fast web hosting to help you with that.

Bottom line, when many high quality backlinks are pointing to your website, the odds are, that your site is climbing up in the search results. This is because most links pass a tiny bit of the importance, the so called "link juice", of the linking site though to your website.

High quality backlinks

Google likes relevant links from websites with a high reputation. So placing links on quality sites in your niche is a good start. But this might not be enough, when you are competing against websites with thousands of back links. You need powerful backlinks for this.

Do links from .gov or .edu have more value?

Many SEOs believe, that backlinks on websites which are under government or educational top level domains are more powerful than links on sites using other domain names. In contrast to this, Matt Cutts, head of Google's Webspam team, explains in the following video, that links on .edu and .gov sites are treated the same way as any other link in the web.

Considering, that Google is interested in keeping people from spamming .edu and .gov sites, and that SEOs make good money by placing backlinks on these sites, you may think that everybody is twisting the story a little. But the truth is, that both are right,  because sites which are using educational and goverment TLDs are usually of better quality and reputation. The reason for this might be, that it is harder or almost impossible to set up multiple blogs with spun articles under .edu or .gov domains.

This is how to search in Google for good blogs:

  1. Limit to the search to particular TLDs eg. or
  2. Add your keyword to the search
  3. Add "uses commentluv" or "keywordluv" to the search

Example: inurl:research "keywordluv"

Note: Many blogs use the attribute rel="nofollow" for all outgoing links. This tells Google not to pass any "link juice". Tools like SEO Quake can help you to recognize these sites quickly.
