    Hi all,

    Quick question around PBN's...

    If you have a website that is solely targeting UK traffic, ranking on Google.co.uk - is there MORE value in using PBN links that come from websites registered in the UK? Is there an enhanced relevancy from having 'local country' links to your site?

    Anyone have any thoughts? / Anyone have any quality UK PBN links I can buy?!

    Thanks

    Thanks mate, please send them my way if you can.

    Do you think there is benefit with keeping the links 'local'?

    Personally I believe a local PBN partially shows the big g that the content is locally related rather than just generic links (I haven't compared). Recently I purchased .co.uk PBN links here:- http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-google-page-ranking-2-6-trust-flow-25-a.html
    As yet I haven't seen the results, although linking purely to local content for v.low comp searches I'm looking forward to seeing the results. Assuming the best I've another site to use it on to.
    Good luck, if you find a better answer, let me know.

    A natural website going viral has a lot of chances to receive first backlinks from the same country, especially if the website is in a different language than english. But you shouldn`t opt only for local backlinks, widen your range, because an interesting website will get traction worldwide at some point..

    Is there a benefit in using country specific links? Probably yes considering the google algo has 200+ ranking factors but how big/important is the benefit, nothing to lose sleep over.

    I look at country specific and niche related links as an added bonus if you get them, they ARE NOT a must have.

    SAPE links rank my U.S sites just fine.

    Yes there is added value. Another way to look at it is, what effect would 100 PBN links from .ru domains have if your main site is a .co.uk? I'm guessing probably less value than if it were 100 .co.uk domains. Plus it wouldn't look very natural.

    As the poster above said, there are over 200 ranking signals and although it may be difficult to gauge exactly how much impact country specific domains may have, every little helps and it all adds up. If this is for a short term project, it's probably not worth worrying too much about though.

    Many sellers here who keep .uk domain PBNs which would be helpful.

    Im not sure if it matter where the domain is registered, but what does matter is the IP of the host server. You will see a much nicer rank increase for your page in the UK if the website is hosted from the UK as opposed to hosted somewhere else in the world.

    Thats actually a good question. I have a very small PBN (10 sites) some with some .co.uk addresses the others with .org and even one with a .eu They are all hosted in UK but never thought about the extension. Not sure how you could test that.

    What is your definition of quality? Might be able to sell you a few links if they meet your criteria.

    Is the hosting point rational/logical thinking - or have you tested? My gut agrees with you, but would be interesting to know.

    I've been searching around for the same questions, does it matter if the PBN links are from .com or .co.uk nowadays?

    and any high quality, long lasting UK PBN sellers around?
