It's not true!

Matt Cutts, head of Google's SPAM team, has made it clear that there is no such thing that Google gives more value to .edu backlinks.

It is believed that .edu backlinks carry extra weight... It does carry extra weight if and only if that .edu website is an authority website.

Moreover, that .edu backlink have to be relevant to your web page otherwise you won’t get any backlink credit for it.

hi
this is not true because there is first time an official written by Googler, JohnMu, wrote in a Google Groups thread that
Quote:
"In general, I would like to add that no, backlinks from .EDU domains generally do not get "additional credibility from Google"

Many people will oppose that statement by the man, at least going by what we get from the search engine sometime.

It has long been said that .edu links are classed as authority links and add more juice to your link building efforts. This is because they are often used on authority sites like universities and education websites amoungst others.

It is true that Matt Cutts of Google has stated that Google do not give more value to .edu sites or similar. I am always a bit sceptical of Google's many announcements. I get the impression that they try to throw us off the scent when we are getting a little too close to the truth.

What about .gov links? Yeah I also heard that Google don't give extra value to .edu link but .gov? They are special or not?

I dont think if it weighs more. I have my links on edu sites. But there's no change in SERP since I got the links.

I'm not saying this is true in any way but it would make sense for edu and gov backlinks to have a higher weighting since you can't just get an edu domain (or can you?). What are the requirements for acquiring an edu domain?

.edu and .gov priority have been lowerd in google panda
these links was hot, why,because these links it hard to get,so it had high priority. but when panda appered, these links lowered priority, first these links used SPAM more, a large quality of comments appears; second google more like various backlinks, we need "healthy" backlinks besides "healthy" contents. it's not to say .edu, .org is useless, just lowered, not so important.

Getting a link on an edu or gov website usually yields better seo results because these websites are usually authority website. This isn't always to case though, and I believe .edu websites are treated similarly to that of .com websites in terms of seo.

No, It doesn't do anything extra. Google does not give any weightage to .edu or .gov TLDs.
Google treat them same as any other TLD

.gov and .edu backlinks are coming from the forums mainly. But imagine if you have link from the home page. I think that this is the main reason to be considered as trusted links, because your company is linked somehow with legal and trusted organisations. And some people still are selling backlinks created by black hat software such as scrape box and xrummer. It is no great use of the knowledge that in the modern SEO fairy tale, the white hat will save the day.

It took me a few minutes, but I did find the Matt Cutts video on GoogleWebmasterHelp's YouTube Channel where he answered this:
Quote:
Does Google rank blog sites any differently than regular websites? Does Google treat .gov.pl links with the same weight as regular .gov links?
