Had a bit of success, but it is tiresome going through nerds blogs reading about all their boring exploits....

site:.edu *your target market*+blog

It is not for me.

Has to be a better way...

Wow, great tips on finding relevant .edu and .gov sites. I have to admit that I never really paid much attention to these in the past, but will definitely be adding this to my linkbuilding toolkit.

Thanks for the extensions, which will help me a lot in blog commenting. I completely agree with you, links from .edu sites really help to increase the ranking.

I've spoken w/ him in person on several occasions and heard him discuss it in sessions over the past several years at Pubcon, and he has always stated that Google is TLD agnostic. They don't treat ANY TLD differently than another in their ranking algo... including .gov and .edus.

Here's a post about edu and gov links for SEO that contains counter arguments to the OPs post.
Thanks for this information.
