List of 25 Best .Edu Forums (Free)

If you have been blogging for a few years, then you would surely be knowing the importance of backlinks, especially for ranking your blog high in search engines. Though there are a lot of ways to build backlinks which were extensively used by bloggers for a long time, recently Google stepped up the gas and decided to target blogs that were using unnatural link building methods, resulting in huge drop in traffic for most of the blogs.

However edu backlinks still work quite effectively in boosting SERP rankings as edu blogs enjoy an authority status on nearly every search engine, and if you targeting Google then it’s all the better. That being said, garnering edu backlinks is extremely hard as most of the edu blogs do not allow you to post comments with a backlink to your blog. However you can make use of the edu forms mentioned in this list to link back to your site and get some precious .edu backlinks.

Before you get excited, just a word of caution from my side – DONT SPAM! If you post low quality or clearly spam comments, they will most likely get deleted by the blog owners, so your effort will go to waste. It’s always better to read what the post is about and then base your comment on that.
