The other day I mentioned the importance that Google and the other search engines place on .edu and .gov links. They are considered very valuable. So people have been asking, “How do I find them?”
Here are a couple of easy ways to find them.
Type the following into Google search:
site:.edu inurl: “your keyword” Put your keyword in-between the quote marks and see what comes up. Find a site where you can put a value added comment with your keyword as anchor text and you’ve got a link! For .gov sites just replace the .edu with .gov and follow the same process.
Here is the coolest way to really drill down and get exactly what you are looking for:
site:.edu inurl: "post a comment" -"comments closed" -"you must be logged in"
What this will give you is a .edu site that allows you to post a comment but it eliminates sites that have closed the comments on that post and eliminates sites that require you to log in. Once you get the search results find an appropriate site and add a helpful comment. Substitute .gov for the .edu and follow the same process. It’s that easy!
Finding Blogs and Forums in Your Market Niche
An easy way to find forums and blogs in your niche is to type your “Keyword” + forum or “Keyword” + blog into Google search. For example if your keyword was “carpet cleaning” you would enter carpet cleaning + forums into Google search or carpet cleaning + blogs.
