    Watch that. And remember, it's a university website.

    that page is full of ads, and I am 100% confident that either the webmaster of the website doesn't even know about it, or he's doing it willingly.

    Most educational institutes don't have budget to afford a full time webmaster to avoid all this ... :p
    But now .edu is not a special treat for ranking high in Google.

    It really depends on the school, some of the Universities have very dedicated webmasters and some hire a couple of frat boys who are too busy doing more important stuff with their time. ;)

    I was searching for a term, and one of those pages accidentally ranked #2 for that term.

    it is a dynamic error page that say we can find your request and try this link.

    I think SEO mubia means using google search with a .edu in the search to find .edu blogs and forums. It is a lot of work, but it can pay off.
