I have a very successful competitor who has his "PBNs" build like this: 1) Most of them can be found easily, no spyder blocking. That is why I used "PNB" because they are not really private 2) good content relevant to his money site 3) 50% expired domains, 50% new domains 4) links to his money sites highly diversified. Textlinks, banners, links in header / footer / sidebar, links from home page and/or inner pages 5) lots of links to high authority sites For google it probably looks completely natural. I am wondering now if I could use the same strategy. What astonishes me the most: This guy even writes his name big on each site. He does not try to hide at all. That leads me to the question if he builds his network so well that he does not need to hide because he is in compliance with the google guidelines. I mean: When I build a website with really good content providing value to the users. Why would I not be allowed to make a link to my moneysite? Is there any possibility to build PBNs in such a way that I don´t risk anything even with a manual review because it is not a violation of google guidelines?
