There's been a lot of shit going on in regards to PBNs over the last week or so and lots of misinformation out there right now. There is one in particular that I would like to address: - Spending alot of money to make your PBN blogs look like "real sites" (whatever the fuck that means) is NOT the solution to avoiding Google's wrath. You could spend the bare minimum on a pbn blog AS LONG AS YOU ARE ABLE TO EFFECTIVELY MANAGE YOUR FOOTPRINTS. Blowing wads of cash on a pbn in a feeble attempt to make it look legit is a wasted exercise if you are leaving large footprints everywhere. A winning PBN owner will work hard to minimize footprints to beat googles algorithms by avoiding a set of patterns that will trigger a penalty. The losing PBN owner spends a ton of money to make a site look "real" to beat a manual review.
