    I'm not sure if anyone here is familiar with Alex Becker, but he just released this video a opened and Facebook group that teaches non SEOs how to build PBNs. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1488102664764955/

    Think we should be worried? Will they kill it for everyone or just waste their money?

    LMAO ..
    competition is never a bad thing
    since you have to see how many PBNs LAST .. anyone can setup one and tout the services
    but will they last ?
    do they have things in place to do the tricks needed to hide it ?
    can they do some multiface magic ?
    can they link out correctly ?
    can they hide from the RIGHT bots ? and stay available to the ones we want ?


    thanx

    I guess this depends on how many people join this group and participate, but I think we're going to see a spike in auctions bids.

    You're prob right. I watched this Alex's guys videos and he even goes into detail on how you can sell your links. I sure hope these people don't migrate to here and start selling their links, adding to the clutter already in place.

    This guy claims he's rolling in it, prob on here already. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1488102664764955/permalink/1488784744696747/

    I think it is a good thing.
    The more bad PBNs there are, the saver the good ones are

    They're promoting moonsy, domcop, domjar and expired domains. The video tells you how to spot domains.
    I guess they will struggle to tell the difference between a good link and a bad link though.

    Yeah I didn't think of it like that. I'm just thinking these people will drive the prices of domains up and throw bad sites around marketplaces. By the looks of the questions, these people are in it for quick money, so they're destined to burn.

    They are all over exploited and thus very hard to find decent spam-free domains.

    Adapt, analyze and enhance your strategies.

    This is only going to cause a raise in the amount of money needed to create solid "PBN" platforms.

    If all you are doing is buying sites, slapping some content, creating links and leaving them there to rot, then your efforts are most likely going to be futile in the long run.

    Spend time/money to create AND maintain your bricks!

    To OP:
    How exactly would they "kill it for everyone"?
    It's such a generic linking strategy - I don't see how it really could "kill it".
    Of course the more people hunting domains, the more we'll have to pay which is always a minus.

    I agree that most won't do anything, but at the same time, if everyone keeps on the "I expose this because most people won't take action anyway", then it only makes sense that with time you will have enough people to rain on everyone's parade.

    At the same time, those who do it incorrectly become a filter for those who are doing a better job at them.

    More the merrier, it'll make it that much harder for them to find yours in all that pile.

    Most of those people are looking for fast cash..we all know it's not about how fast you can make it but how long you can keep it rolling in.. they will burn out fast

    Yes, PBN's are dead now cause some random f##king nobody opened a course on facebook which people have been doing for the last decade.

    Just give up. No more ranking, no more PBN's.... this will likely take out the entire forum. But the good news is ShopRite is still hiring.

    I Think PBN will never die, its impossible if you hide your PBN well.
    And I don't believe one fb page will change the course of Google next updates.

    I hardly think that seems possible... auction bids are through the roof anymore :-(

    Alex Becker has been teaching this for about 18 months now - through sourcewave and Infinitum, looks like he's just taken it to a different format so no, I don't think they're going to kill it all of a sudden.

    Yeah sorry, my Buzz Feed mentality wrote that heading just so you click on it. Did it work?
    I'm really talking about people bidding ridiculously on domains, therefore driving up the pricing of domains further.

    To be honest, I don't give a shit, if I did I wouldn't have posted it in the lounge.



    Yep, I'm deleting all my domains now as I type this and palming off all the hosting to hobo's on the street so they have cloud storage.

    Yep, posting the thread on everyones wall now, just incase they don't know about it yet. ;)
