Hello Hello,

 

just curios... I know how to get a .com Domain for example.

Is it as easy to get a .edu Domain ? Just more expensive ?

 

Or are there specific rules to register an .edu Domain ?

 

Thx for every little info !

The only registrar for .edu is Educause. According to their policies page:

 

Only U.S. postsecondary institutions that are institutionally accredited by an agency on the U.S. Department of Education's list of Nationally Recognized Accrediting Agencies may obtain an Internet name in the .edu domain.

going off at tangent somewhat but based on the obvious fact that you did not, or could not use a search engine to find that information, you need to comprehend that to really understand Search optimisation and to 'get' the difference between "optimal" and "optimised" you DO need to know how to search in the first place.

 

And knowing "how to search" does NOT mean "checking key word rankings"

Oh, and to answer your next thought, .... I am not 'having a go at you' per se.

 

 

 

I am trying to get you and countless others to realise that YOU are a Google user and the "secret of SEO" is already in your OWN experience, no tools are required, no mathematics, no 'formulas', no "competitor analysis" is necessary.

 

All you need to do is use Google or Bing/Yahoo for hundreds of queries, but never the same one twice, of different market sectors, preferably without using a query in "your" sector. Then READ the documents that are returned in the results, just read, do not analyse, (analyse starts off with "anal" and being that is what you need to avoid) then decide how well the content matches your original question. Always remembering that IF you search for "spammy" phrases in "spammy" market sectors you WILL, absolutely get "spammy" results.

 

When you have been doing that for a while you will begin to understand what search engines ARE trying to show to users and the kind of document URLs that they prefer to show their users. There is no 'special magic trick' involved just the cognitive "magic" that most human beings over the age of around twelve are capable of.

 

And that is filtering the crap from the jewels.
