    Are blog networks, such as BMR, UAW, MAN, ALN and some others are powerful and effective for ranking in SE?

    Yep. I'd stick with those that have user-contributed sites though because networks such as BMR are vulnerable to de-indexation due to all being controlled by one person, and if they set them all up the same way, and it's detectable, they get in trouble. User-submitted sites will generally just get slowly whittled away by people leaving the network or getting de-indexed, but a gradual erosion in links is much easier to account for and way more natural from the SE's perspective.

    As of now, I would stay away from networks as a lot people are getting penalized b/c of Panda 3.3.

    Set your own one up. It's really not that expensive, extremely effective, and you control the content.

    Any recommendation on setting up your own blog network?

    I wouldn't even know where to start with that.

    Privately owned Blog Networks are still very effective.

    Why get on a sinking ship? Get your own private blog network. Extremely effective.

    Where did you come up with this? I have spent thousands of dollars, plus time and energy and know that right now privately owned blog networks, autoblogs also, are EXTREMELY effective. Knowing what to do and how to do it is the tricky part.

    I don't know what this means.
    It costs the same to register a new domain as it does to register an expired domain, what are you getting at?

    1) expired domains do not carry PR almost ever
    2) If they do, they're snatched up or renewed instantly
    3) It's much easier and cheaper to just register new domains
    4) if you want an expiring domain prior to when it hits the open market (which will cause it to be snatched up within seconds) you need to put in backorders, these are $49+ each

    There's a reason that on expireddomains there's literally 0 high PR domains that are "expired" and not "registered"

    Negative, I have a bunch of sites that would say otherwise.

    Agreed.

    They aren't all snapped up/renewed, as someone else mentioned. Sure, higher PR ones are usually taken quickly, but not always. Got to be careful of the ones with fake PR. If you don't care about having a meaningful domain name, or the TLD, it's easy to find some (with valid PR).

    Which is why the method says not to filter by PR but to look at the backlink profile.

    Me too.

    As others have said, private networks are very effective. A mix of network links, personal private network links and links from other methods (web 2.0, articles, wikis, etc) is the best way to rank and stay ranked.

    Yes, some who use private networks have been hit by the recent Panda update but there are many people who use private networks that were not effected at all.
