    If I have my PBN sites on a the same nameservers, but with different IP for each one, how dangerous is that?

    I am trying to figure out if it it is worth it to have a single hosting plan for all of them and just paying to have dedicated IPs.

    Yes, you are leaving a footprint. And no single hosting plan for all of them won't work. The trick is to make them look like blogs, not a PBN.

    If they are real sites with good content and maybe some rankings, am I safe with within same hosting plan?

    Looks like you are Talking about SEO Hosting. It is clearly and 100% Footprint. As Those IPs will be represented to only one NAMESERVER. So Google can easily notice that all your PBN Sites are hosting on Same Nameserver but on Different IP. I will say better to go for hosting which provides Different Nameservers like Easy Blog Networks. It is the Safest and Best way to Host PBN :)

    No, you are not. If you use the same hosting, you lose out the basics of PBN. They would be just content sites, providing little to no link juice (and your purpose is also lost). The big G will find all your stuff, and gift you a manual penalty.

    If all of your domains are on same nameservers, it's a footprint. If you have a large number of sites in your PBN, better opt for two different hosting with unique IP addresses.

    What's wrong with using the same dns name Servers? You think google is gonna penalize all the sites that are using a hosting companies name Servers?

    No, but it may penalize you if you have backlinks from the same nameservers... maybe.

    A few years ago there were SEO hosting companies that a lot of guys used for their PBNs. You would pay a low dollar amount for the hosting and then an additional fee for each IP if I remember correctly but they got busted as you would have a bunch of links from the same NS linking into your site and that is about a size 11 1/2 (45) triple E shoe footprint.

    Many of them got "blacklisted" by Google because it was clear they were using different IPs to try and hide from Google.

    Sounds like they were dumb

    Seriously though, if I got a 100 ips from my hosting company and then use cloud flare dns for each site with their own ip, what's google gonna do?

    My guess is that it's not about the dns/ips themselves, but rather the link profiles of all these sites.

    If your link profile is dumb (all your sites pointing to each other, I.e. A ring) then yeah google can map that and slap you.
