    everything else being equal, which one would be more effective as a pbn:
    2 domains with 20 backlinks each, or 1 domain with 40 backlinks?

    Good question. 2x 20 imo. Two opinions are better than one.

    I agree.
    If one bites the dust you have the other one.

    Quality over quantity. However, if the 40 backlinks are shitty quality, then it really makes no difference.

    Everything else being equal? Are you suggesting that the domain with 40 backlinks and the 2 with 20 backlinks each all have equal trust and authority? Or are you suggesting that the domain with 40 backlinks has twice as much trust and authority than the ones with 20 backlinks each?

    Number of backlinks means nothing by itself.

    IF you are saying that the domain with 40 backlinks has twice the power of each individual domain that has 20 backlinks, then I'd probably go for the two separate domains. You halve the risk of de-indexing and you can choose two different anchors.

    In my opinion, if the quality of the 40 links is the same i would go for 2x20.

    In its current form your question leaves me perplexed.

    1 is not a network, and although hypothetical, for the purpose of seo 2 isn't either.

    The number of links is so piddly small that I could do it in an afternoon, so I'm assuming you are asking, should you spend your seo budget on two sites rather than one? Meaning each site will only get half the juice.

    In which case 2 (but actually times it by ten to begin with)

    Exactly, if those backlinks are coming from crappy/low quality sites then they means nothing to me.

    If they are exactly equal, theoretically in terms of power alone, there would no advantage / disadvantage to choosing one over the other. It's a trick question!

    If we're talking about other benefits, one domain is less costly, and requires less time to setup.
