    Perfect Rankings Boost tests - .edu+.gov+ article marketing

    One of my successful tests and I wanted to share with you. I know many of the webmasters already know the practical value of .edu and .gov links, even if the link page doesn't have any PR. I tested them at 3 of my sites.

    Test 1. only some .edu links (50+, NO PR but do-follow links)
    Test 2. only 2-3 .gov link (NO PR but do-follow)
    Test 3. Article marketing (7-10 articles per month; syndicated to top 15 article directories) + .edu links + .gov links

    Results?

    Test 1 - Good improvements (Rankings improved by 17 positions; Jumped to page 7 from page 9) The program ran for 25 days and results started showing up after 15th day or so.. stayed for 1 month .. till date

    Test 2 - Little improvement but I'm hoping some good. it was difficult to attain many .gov links.

    Test 3 - Fantastic improvements (On page 2 bottom from Page 7). The program ran for 25 days and results started showing up after we finished. But very nice improvements. Now to move up to page 1, I just need some article marketing and some contextual links.

    Just to inform, I ran these tests on average competitive keywords (seo copywriting services) to super competitive keywords (diet pills).

    So, I'd say a combo of .edu links, .gov links and article marketing gives amazing results and needless to say; stable too. This is one of the best link building combos that works really well..

    Did you compare the rankings for Test 1, test 2 and Test 3 for the same KW?? that will be more helpful i guess..that would involve make 3 different sites for same KW..or may be use 3 wordpress.com blogs..

    Tests were for same keywords with different sites - as well as same site with different tests. I just tried to make sure that everything works well and easy-to-track in order to reach a good conclusion.

    Looks interesting. Now if you included tips and tricks how to get .gov and .edu backlinks
    would be even better.

    ok..i got it..you just placed your links in the .edu and .gov sites, what was the content in them?? i believe the related content you wrote in article marketing test may had helped more..because Big G also weighs wherther the links comes from related or unrelated sites

    I'll try to write an article for Google knol or promotionworld sites about it. But you should keep an eye at people who sells do-follow blogs and sites.. e.du of course..

    Another way is to find .edu pages and contribute your real opinion. I must say, most .edu pages DO NOT allow the links but some do, specially when your comment is more like an article and truly relevant to the page.

    To be honest, the .edu and .gov link pages were not related but still they imparted enough weight. Articles for article marketing should be real good and of high quality, not just spun ones. Reason? If they were good, they'd be most likely picked up by other webmasters and you get free backlinks from single article without any effort. Kinda linkbait system.

    I want to be careful that people don't get the wrong impression about one thing.

    Here's a quote from Interview with Google's Matt Cutts at Pubcon:

    Matt Cutts: Typically, our policy is: a link is a link, is a link; wherever that link's worth is, that is the worth that we give it. Some people ask about links from DMOZ, links from .edu or links from .gov, and they say: "Isn't there some sort of boost? Isn't a link better if it comes from a .edu?" The short answer is: no, it is not. It is just .edu links tend to have higher PageRank, because more people link to .edu's or .gov's.

    That's truly said but what we should believe is LIVE RESULTS.. Shouldn't we? And that's what make us conduct different tests.

    My sole motive to run these tests was whether relevancy works or not? And if it does, then to what extent.

    I was actually not expecting this much nice ouput, but it made me believe that .edu and .gov links help in rankings.

    Article marketing is known to give excellent ranking boost from ages. And it works better and better as quality of content goes up (as I threw a light on kinda linkbait stuff it works)

    But what was important here - this combination of .edu, .gov and article marketing gave a super boost.. So isn't it something that contradicted what Matt said?

    However, I'm trying this test 3 on a different site and different keywords. If it gives me same results and the lasting one of course, I'd assume it working for most of niches.
