We all know, quality backlinks are still hugely important to get top rankings in Google – unfortunately it is either very time consuming or expensive to get those high-value backlinks…
…Unless you have the right strategy! Here is a great tip that will allow you to find a large number of .edu and .gov backlink opportunities for any niche and within seconds.
How? Simply use the “powers” of Google – it’s free and almost effortless.
Let’s assume you have a website about cat care and you want to find some quality .edu backlinks to improve your rankings – without spending hours searching around and without paying anything.
Go to Google and use a search query like the following:
site:.edu inurl:blog “cats” -“posting closed” -“comments closed” “post a comment”
Let’s have a closer look at the query:
- site:.edu tells Google to find only .edu domains – you can also replace this with .gov
- inurl:blog tells Google to find pages that have the word “blog” in the url – those are typically the pages that allow you to leave a comment with a backlink
- Then comes your main keyword, for example: “cats”
- Then we tell Google that we don’t want any pages that contains the phrases “posting closed” or “comments closed”; this is because of the “-” before those phrases.
- And finally, we tell Google that we are only interested in pages that contain also the phrase “post a comment”
To find even more backlinks, you can modify the various phrases. For example, you could replace “post a comment” with “recent comments” or “leave a reply”…
