    Yup, that's why constant disclaimer in the thread that its MY Experience :D


    1. I only used single word keywords, for example if my keyword id "best blue widget", I will use "best", "blue"& widget" . I never used any generic words or naked url

    2. I bough the service and they are still alive. I hope they dont drop as i Paid for them :D

    3. I am on #5 now.

    Which anchors did you use on the niche PBN, I assume on the blog comments you just did URL/Brand?

    single word anchors. For example, if your keyword is "best flying blue widget", I used "best" , "flying" , "blue" , "widget"

    social signals DON'T play any role in rankings. Its just a myth

    As for anchors, as long as you dont use exact keyword until you are on page 2, everything will be fine. Once you are on page 2 in Google, you have to use a few exact match anchors.

    This obviously depends on the market and competition, in competitive markets you aren't getting to page 2 without exacts. They may be through 301s or on hidden PBNs you can't see, but it's not possible to rank in competitive markets (with a root domain) without exacts.

    It's hard to find homepages with lots of links to rank in competitive niches. Its more likely a very strong domain ranking internal page without any backlinks.

    I am talking bout my own site here so I am pretty sure when i said that I rarely used "exact match" anchors.
    As for the "depends on the market and competition" thing, ofcourse you are right. Everything depends on the competition and stuff but how you perceive competition vs how other perceive it may differ in some scenarios :) For example take the keyword "schizophrenia symptoms". As per my experience, its almost impossible to rank a domain or niche site on this keyword. However for someone else, its nothing but a couple dozen PBN links :)


    free links like web 2.0. profile, comments etc
    As per my experience in niche sites, usually On Page seo and content itself is strong enough to rank the website within 100 in a couple of months without any links.

    Dont forget to share the results.

    not necessary. for instance, the niche sites homepage is usually the one ranking on keywords.

    Hi,

    Just wondered if the site was still ranking ? I hear a lot of stories on here that pbn links purchased from the marketplace disappear after a few months?

    Good luck!

    It takes time for rankings to settle. Content age as well as age of domain and links also play a role.
