    Hey guys, what's up? I have a lot of money laying around and i was wondering if you guys can share some tips on building a PBN, i just had 1 specific question about this topic.

    Should every domain be random? I mean in different niches? Does it matter? Or if i am trying to rank "weight loss", i'll have to make all the PBN domains on the weight loss niche?

    Thanks!

    If you have a lot of money laying around, hire someone who knows.

    Have in mind that at the end of the day every link count, but relevancy is what can give you major boosts in ranking.

    Niche-related domain + Niche-related content = Win

    You can but a relevant backlink holds more power then a link from a general site. Both will work though

    You certainly can, niche related PBN is a plus, if not it also work just fine.

    I don't know how much domains i should buy as a start, can i do anything with like 20?

    Also, my friend said that i only buy 4-5 domains a month, i was thinking of getting like 100 in a week, why won't think work?

    Of course niche related will be best - because the links from it will be more relevant.
    But of course if you build a niche PBN then you are basically spending the budget purely on that site/that niche.
    So its technically more expensive.

    If you know how much the site/niche is worth to you and you are confident you can rank then its fine.

    Well unless you're going to outsource the work to someone, buying 100 domains in a week seems dumb. It takes time to put together a PBN site and if you spread your domains out a bit you can focus on just getting high quality domains for your PBN instead of just a bunch of random domains that probably don't have solid metrics.

    Yeah i am going to get high quality domains, and 100 was just a number. Maybe like 10-15 HQ domains a week, but my friend said that this will be bad and google can penalize me, is this true?

    I don't go out my way to get niche related domains but it is better if they are niche related.

    I would NEVER pass up on a great domain because its not niche related.

    If you don't have a lot of money - just saying - you could build a PBN without buying any domains. Such a version can be much more powerful.

    This is not exactly true. While a pbn made up of accounts on authority web2.0 and blogging platforms will generally help to boost your rankings there is a lot more benefit from having your own domains with whatever CMS you want on them.

    With your own PBN built up of expired domains you have full control and everything is as permanent as you want it to be whereas an account or group of accounts on web2.0 and blogging sites can be dropped at the worst possible time if you are unlucky.

    Also back to your original point, a PBN of relevant sites will likely rank better than a PBN of general sites but that is not to say that you should pass up on some high quality domains because they are not laser focused on your niche. All backlink profiles should look natural so it is good to mix in a few links from some lesser focused sites for good measure.

    Diversity. Diversity, my friend, is the key. Make one site for weight loss, another one for cancer, third one for Obamacare, next one for medical equipment... This will be huge.

    Also, don't waste your time searching for good domains. Buy from people who know how to do it.

    There are more chances, that niche relevant would be spammed or Google Update Effected Domains. It's Difficult to Find Good Niche Relevant Domain.

    But, ya If you can find niche relevant will be good, but general also work well. You can buy General Domain and Add Weight Loss or Health Related Content to it.
    I am Talking About expired domains, You can find in auction easily Niche Relevant Domains.

    There is a lack of non-spammed high metric domain in general. Churn and burn PBN networks have chewed through a great percentage of most niches' best domains. At some point Google will have to say fuck it and stop caring as much what a dropped/expired domain's link history is.
