    I read a post about parasites a few years ago, but haven't heard about them recently. Do they still work?

    Would building a quality PBN to a parasite (FB,YT, etc) work?

    I think reddit is a good one. Also I don't think the pbn has to be high quality

    Yeah parasites are still relevant if they are good, most of the time they rank higher than competitors' sites

    Yes they do. But I'd rather pointing PBN to moneysite than to parasites.

    I don't think the pbn has to be high, and I think pinterest is a good one.

    Yes, they are still works. Try to create parasites with more random properties as Google learned how to easily spot them.

    Yeah ignore subdomain ones though. Use ones that leverage ranking power of the domain, like Facebook or Pinterest or Reddit.

    If you're making a quality PBN, don't waste it on the parasite, use it on the money site.

    Parasites work, but you get out of them what you put into them, like a PBN. The better and more content you put, the more it helps. Same with links and social sharing.

    Benefit of parasite is that you can hit them hard with links, including links of dubious quality. Drawback is that they don't carry the same weight as a standalone domain.

    Parasites still work if you pick the right ones.

    What do you mean by, "don't carry the same weight"?
    Surely the fact that the parasite domain is a high trust domain means that they carry more weight with google?
    Or do you mean that they are less likely to convert customers?
