    Hi guys,

    Today i bought my first expired domains with a decent ct/tf I am just wondering now what? Can I just rebuild this domain to a wordpress site and start hitting up blogs to build my own PBN?

    Also is there anything i need to keep in mind while building this PBN?

    Why are you building a PBN?

    you are going to need more than one domain and you are going to need to keep google from finding them

    So why spend money as an investment and not know what you're going to get out of that investment?


    If you're gonna build a PBN then have you actually got a site that will actually gain something from your poorly planned investment ??


    It's like buying a car without a driving license....

    I have 5 domains in Total which i want to use for a pbn to boost 4 sites i own. I am just wondering how to get started, can i just transform these pages to wordpress and start dropping blogs?

    How can i prevent Google from finding my pbn?

    Avoid footprints such as same name servers, same IP address, same email address that used for all domains etc. These are some defects that cause while building a PBN network.

    Tips:
    ~If you really aim to build a PBN, use different IP with different name servers. That is register each domains with different hosts.
    ~Avoid footprints that mentioned above.
    ~If you buy old domains for your PBN, check metrics. ie., DA and PA must have 15+ out of 100. Either niche or general site.
    ~Learn some basics of hosting which is best for PBN by googling it.

    Hey. I'm in pretty much the same boat as you. Found out what a PBN is 6 days ago and went omg! I've spent the between now and then glued to my computer.

    I purchased 5 high TF/DA domains and am going to make them into my Tier 1. Ill assume you're familiar at least with the tiers, if not let me know. Forewarning, my pbn is intend for the long term (not a churn-n-burn).

    Register and host your tier 1 properties separately with a mix of fake and private whois. Make these properties high quality with hand written content. They should link to a number of authoritative sites and eventually back to your money site. Be careful with link velocity.

    Tier 2 can be largely web 2.0 sites and maybe some domains you buy and host yourself. You can put up pretty crap content if i understand correctly. You can also throw crap links at your tier 2, but again be careful about velocity.

    Assuming your T1 are already authoritative domains then really T2 is to get T1 indexed and pass a little bit of link juice.

    I can tell you what services I have bought etc. to make my life easier along the way. Hope this helped :)

    If you bought only one domain you can maintain it as a real blog. If you buy more domain avoid factors such as same WordPress themes,name servers,IP address,email address. You can build backlinks slowly and gradually to keep it safe from the radar.

    The point of building a PBN is that you don't need to do any tiering. Expired domains already have backlinks. There's no need to blast them with tools or web 2's, which isn't going to do much unless you blast those web 2's again, which is just a giant waste of time.

    No pbns are long-term. If you want to build long term properties stick with guest posting and paid links which are pretty much undetectable. You'll just waste time trying to make your pbn look real instead of spending that money expanding the pbn.

    The only way you'll make it look real is if you invest a huge amount of money in content, logos and design. Just not worth it. You need to build 20-30 pbns per month for 2-3 months to rank most stuff. 5 beautifully crafted pbns that will pass manual review won't do shit to rank your site unless it's very low comp.

    And you don't have to blast pbns to get them index. All my pbn sites index within 24-48 hours. Much much faster than new domains. Expired domains in your pbn already have plenty of backlinks so they're getting crawled often since the google spider is ever active.


    Best way to keep Google from finding them is to to set the robots.txt to

    Code:
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /
    
    That's not going to achieve much for your SEO though ;-)

    You want Google to find your pbn and index it.

    Keep on tracking your site and keep it updated.
    Provide some of hosting services and use social media sites for promoting.

    Just wondering guys, I have my eyes on another great expired .eu domain, the ct/tf is great however it has very few backlinks. Is it worth the investment if a expired domain has little backlinks?
