    Hi fellows! I have a batch of around 20-30 PBNs linking to my MS which giving me a quite good rank.
    However, my business has recently burnt out. Not due to google issues; the niche has worn off.
    I am about to create a new site and my question is if I start driving all of these PBNs to a new URL, isn't it going to be a fingerprint for google?

    All of them are registered for a different person, using different hosting and there is a diversity of registrars.

    From my personal experience I haven't noticed any drops in rankings. In my case I've de-linked the previous burned website only and leave the other links as they were. I am intending now to link to a new website that has a 301 from the burned domain and just got indexed.

    The PBN Registration and info is fine. What you need to worry about is linking to a new site that has the same footprint of your money site. Pretty sure the credentials and registration info of your current site and the upcoming new one will bear similarities, Maybe you can use your existing network to power up a new ring of PBN sites that point toward your new site.

    I might be inclined to drop 5 and replace them with another 5, it certainly wouldn't do any harm

    Most of the PBNs are generic. Since the competition is not very high it is not hard to rank.
    Both of my MS (the actual one and the one I am working on right now) are health related, with low competition and registered for a different person as well.

    I was sort of thinking of removing/leaving (what do you suggest?) the blog post linking to my actual MS on my PBN and just adding a new blog post with a new link to my new MS.

    What I am concerned of is that google might figure out that 30 sites linking to 2 same sites might be a part of private blog network. What do you reckon?

    I just wanna add that I do not care anymore about my previous MS at all

    I dont think it will be an issue. Of course as said above, if your new site has same registration details as your old site then this is a potential footprint, but I would think that this would only come to light if your network gets big and someone manually looks into it (Which I guess is unlikely).
