Are the backlinks of the domains .gov and .edu domains better than others ?

Google teams have confirmed that there is no preferred domain name extension in the case of an external link.

The benefit gained by a backlink comes from the very popularity of the web page making this link.

It is indeed more frequent that domains in .gov and .edu (governmental, institutional or similar websites) are of better quality both in terms of editorial quality and popularity.
