    This may sound as a silly question but how do people maintain PBN content for 300+ (example) websites?
    I don't really believe they hire writers for that kind of job..
    I mean, the cost would be really, really high..
    I know I WOULD get replies saying "You have to pass the manual review if it hits you" and "Treat PBN websites as you treat your money sites"..
    If you actually get a manual review (out of millions websites out there), do you really think you're going to pass it with unique, hand-written content?
    And how are you even going to treat 300+ PBN websites as your money site?
    That would take A LOT of time and efforts.. It's kind of impossible in my opinion...
    Don't you think "BIG" players use some kind of auto blogging software, using readable content which is not bought?

    What are your thoughs on this?

    Cheers

    They use wordai or some good rewriters to get content for their PBNs. If you are think of using hand written content then you have to rob a bank.

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    When you have 300 PBN sites,you typically have an organization of people. It is not usually the guy making a buck working by himself.

    We have 16 people in our organization doing a variety of things for the different businesses we own, some of which is maintenance of our PBNs; I do not have 300 PBN sites but we do build them for our clients and, usually, once built, the maintenance is minor.

    Nut-Nights: Yeah, that's what I was thinking too.. But I don't think wordai would be good enough for that kind of job.. Hmm
    BassTrackerBoats: 16 people is quite a lot :O But what about people that don't have any "organization".. ? There is still plenty of them I guess..
    arganrecords: Yeah that's true but it would still a lot of time and efforts..

    I can't get your problem. To write articles there are a lot of copywriters!
    You need to hire 10/20 cipywriters and the job is done in few hours without any effort or time (only money).

    PBNs won't perform well in rankings so no manually review for dumb pbn site. They are just for ranking purpose using their past links, dont worry too much about them.

    arganrecords: It's not only money.. If I do hire writers for PBN content, they could EASILY track my PBN websites down since I would use their content.. Also, my blogs would eventually run out of articles if I schedule them.. With auto-blogging software and resource(s) to gather readable content, I wouldn't have any concerns about it.. Keeping your PBN websites fresh using readable content with some kind of auto blogging software would be way better.. I mean, which path would you choose?
    iamsolo: I do not worry about manual reviews at all actually.. If you can't face the consequences, don't go into a war (IMO)..

    Maintaining A PBN(that too 300+ blogs) by a single man is however not possible(i think), definitely a group of experts or atleast basic knowledged people do this together.

    For content :
    1) With money, they buy from re-writers and save time and efforts.
    2) With low investment on a software like WordAI, they do allot 2 people to scrape, Spin and to post. u need to invest some time and money in this case.

    If you have 300+ PBN sites and can't afford the upkeep you're in the wrong niche.

    It's really not that hard once you have a team in place. One service I use I believe has a team of writers on hand, who are all passionate about a number of specific topics. Then they manage the content of those sites and act as if it their own blogs. So far the strategy works well as I haven't seen a deindexed site in their network since I started years ago.

    The people I know who have very large pbn's are seo professionals who have the money to invest in tons of written content. The build and flip sites for cash flow so they can afford the content.

    I'm (More or less) a one man operation and manage a rather large network of sites (600 or so live at the moment).

    I take about 15% of my profit every month and put it back into the network. The higher the metrics on the site, the higher it is in the "Spreadsheet of love". IE: Sites on the bottom get as little as 1 new article every month. Sometimes none. Sites on top get 10, or even 15.

    Doesnt "Cost" me a dime either. Its just money I'd have to pay in taxes otherwise. (I mean ok, maybe it is still "Costing" me something. But I prefer to think of it that way.)

    I outsource my content curation to an Agency. Try a few out on Odesk and you'll evantually find a decent US/Native English speaking shop with good rates.

    Obviously you dont need to go "Full agency" until your network becomes unwieldy. For 10 or 20 sites, just hunt-down 2 or 3 good writers and work with them 1-on-1. You'll get better rates this way to.

    PS: It bears mentioning that aside from having the new content added (Which a VA does for me), managing the network is not much of a hassle. I do nothing special technically, aside from auto-ping every site in my network 3 times a day (To make sure nothing goes down.) I do however "Fence" my network.

    Out of those 600 sites, I only have 8 money sites. Not much changes in my network aside from new content.

    Like said above, it's usually not just one person but it depends on the sites / person managing them. Some people who have been doing this for a while know what they are doing and they can do everything that needs to be done a lot quicker then someone just starting off.

    My apologies for pointing this out like I am about to, but you are sadly mistaken. Using hand written content IS the only way to maintain a proper PBN. If you're looking to build a PBN and rely on automated software, you best have a time-machine to bring you back to 2010!
