    Cool Woo Hoo - I think I just died and went to SEO heaven!
    Idly checking Google Webmasters (or whatever it's called now) this evening and I found that one of my sites now has a link from a University web site!

    I mean a genuine backlink from a .edu domain - Is that the holy grail or what!!!

    That is a big deal. They do help - a lot. Congratulations!

    I've been fortunate to have backlinks from the University of Maryland and from the state of Maryland and the city of Baltimore and from the Baltimore Airport for one of my travel sites - for a dozen years. They have brought me considerable SEO benefit and a lot of direct-linked customers.

    Thanks Iseult.

    Nothing out of the ordinary really.

    Just following the recommendation which is given time and time again to newbies on this forum:

    Identify a common question, problem, doubt etc... and offer a solution.

    I think that in the case of the post linked to it is a question that is probably asked by new students.

    Although to be honest, I hadn't thought of that when I wrote the post
