    I have recently checked my backlinks, and found some real shitty pbn links, that I built long ago with some seo-guy. Backlinks now like RD5 - RD10, and the sites are being pbns for 4 years, having a ton of outbound links to "whoknowswhere".

    I dont have manual penalty, just noticed smaller-bigger drops in serp according to the newest updates.
    The anchors on theese sites are quite aggressive exact-match, and partial-match anchors.

    I am ranking almost fine for those keywords,
    but cant break into top 3, no matter how many powerful pbn links I build (brand,url), so decided to take action on the weakest ones.

    Is the exact match anchor on a really weak pbn is passing ranking power for my site so just leave it there, or I can delete that because it has no use but messing with my anchor text ratio?

    Some of you will say, "leave it there, and build more powerful backlink", but note that I think somethings messed up here because the competitors outranking me with real weak, inner sites. So I just want to do it the best way. And dont want to waste 10 of my pbns for some inner site to just dilute bad pbns. They might have some better use.

    Inner sites are not necessarily weaker than homepages really.

    Google absolutely hates when links get deleted, but if those PBNs are really as shit as you claim they are, try to remove them one by one over a longer period of time.

    Also, it doesn't matter where anchor comes from. It's counted into anchor text ratio no matter if it's a forum post or guest post.

    Thanks Nargil!

    If you dont mind, please take a look at this:
    "example.com"
    We are talking about that quality. Are they make any good, but just harm my website?
    (I will censor the url, as soon as you replied.)

    Well I don't see any harm in that. Site is crap of course with 1RD, but there shouldn't be any harm from that.

    Though considering it's still a PBN and not exactly well made, feel free to remove this kind of links. However, if you are in a Hungarian market, I doubt there will be any PBN penalties, even more so manual, in a near future.

    Thank you for the checking!
    Yes, I noticed that in less known cctld market, I havent seen the half of the stuff (penalties, deindex, etc) you are, and google is talking about.
    Maybe I just get rid of the exact match anchors for my safety.
