    Fairly straightforward:
    1. Find Fiverr gigs like "I will Photoshop your logo onto 20/40/60/X billboards/t-shirts/celebrity's with signs/coffee mugs/TV screens/books/other/etc"
      1. . Some examples (I haven't used any of these specific gigs / don't specifically endorse any of these sellers):
        1. https://www.fiverr.com/sheikhahsan7...e&funnel=7fa9d941-0709-47cb-8e24-01dacfd924aa
        2. https://www.fiverr.com/assadullaha/...e&funnel=7fa9d941-0709-47cb-8e24-01dacfd924aa
        3. https://www.fiverr.com/yathar007/ma...e&funnel=7fa9d941-0709-47cb-8e24-01dacfd924aa
    2. Send them some image to Photoshop onto the things. If you don't already have a relevant image/icon to use, spend a second $5 having someone make you a logo for your PBN/blog and send that to the person making the 20/40/60 other images
    3. Once the work is done, for the web 2.0 or PBN:
      1. Include one as a featured image for every post on the site
      2. Choose a few of the best ones and include them as banners/headers/backgrounds/others/etc for the site
    Was surprised by how many of these images you can get for $5. While you can definitely tell that they're Photoshops, for what comes to under ten cents per image, they're more than worth it. $5 gets you more than enough images to fill-out the site and to schedule posts for at least a few years.

    Tested this with a recent new project that has been going very well:
    • Site was indexed almost immediately. Within an hour of setting it up. Zero backlinks or marketing efforts and was already showing up in search results
    • There are scheduled posts drip feeding out, which have also been getting indexed almost immediatley after going live
    • Site looks very natural and would definitely stand up to a manual review
    While it's hard to tell to what extent the custom images have helped with the above bullet points, it seems to have contributed to those benefits. Google can definitely tell whether an image is original or not. Would need to do some more testing into the impact of using original images on SEO; seems plausible that Google would respond favorably to original images. Even if the only benefit is improved capacity to pass manual review, for $5 the value is definitely there.

    Summary: Spend $5 to send the logo for your PBN/web 2.0 to a Fiverr gig to have it Photoshopped onto 20/40/60+ assorted original images. If you don't have a logo, spend a second $5 to buy one first. Put on PBN/web 2.0. Will help protect against manual review and Google probably responds favorably to the use of original images.

    You don't need anything for a PBN. You can index content by hiding spun content by setting it's z-score to -9999 then loading in an iFrame with some sales pitch. Putting effort into projects gives you better long-term value.
