Do you abandon PBNs after?

    I just had a quick question. I am kind of that person who over thinks everything before taking any action, I know it's a bad habit but my question is:

    Do you ever abandon PBNs after you use them to rank one of your money sites?

    I am still building a separate PBN per each money site that I have and I feel like it's going to be quite time consuming to update them after I link from them to my money sites.

    Or could I not update every single PBN for a while? The only thing I'd have to make sure is to continue to pay for the hosting/domain for the month?

    Thanks in advanced.

    I usually add one post per blog in every 5-6 weeks, just to keep some fresh content going, though I limit OBL to less than 5 all the time. There are people who just don't care and they do pretty well too.

    I use my PBN for multiple sites. Mostly 2, but for my big money sites I only use one PBN. I leave PBNs only if I my sites get hit or my PBN domains lose power (links removed or whatever other reason).

    Most of the sellers here don't update after 1 year. So most of them, not all, do not renew after milking the users. Anyway if it is your own, hang on to them and include them in your monthly expenses

    Let me ask you
    After you ask a girl to be your girlfriend and she says yes, do you just stop talking to her, and stop having anything to do with her, cuz she your gf now ?

    Anyways... back to reality.
    Why would you abandon a PBN after you use it ?
    You should be maintaining it, care for it, fuck it daily,
    afterall, if that goes down, it will affect your rankings (assuming the PBN is helping you like it is suppose to)

    It doesn't matter if you update them or not. There is no ranking factor that says: "if a site has been updated in the last X days, rank it or count its backlinks/authority, etc... otherwise discontinue them". That's entirely retarded. Not to mention that if that logic was true, PBN domains wouldn't work at all, because their foundation is past backlinks and it doesn't matter that the site has had 100 articles for 3 months straight 4 years ago, then no articles for some months, then it dropped, then you are using it again as a PBN and redirecting all backlinks to newly created articles, etc... the PBN will still WORK wonders for link juice.

    So, no, don't put any more effort in your PBN-s than they require (and they require a shit ton of effort at the beginning anyway). Put that effort in your money sites. Write more articles to rank more keywords. Stop listening to most people. Build your PBN. Link to your money site page targeting your keywords. If you are ranking, move on to the next page in your money site and give it backlinks. If you are using a network to rank a decent mid-sized site ( ~ 100 articles), you will update it frequently with posts linking back to your money site articles anyway.

    Now, I do update my PBN-s. But my reasons for doing so are completely unrelated to what you are asking. I don't care about the "site update frequency"; that being a ranking factor has been a myth since 2009 that I joined here and still continues to be apparently.

    He is right, using PBN to manipulate Google search results is illegal. Its against Google policy.

    Oh really? So what, does that mean we should stop doing it then? Just write articles blindly and pray they rank like Google preaches? Wtf is wrong with BHW lately? HELLO, you are on Black Hat World, not la la la land, you try to use what Google dismisses as illegal to your advantage (the reason why PBN-s or links for that matter are illegal is because they WORK), not stop doing it all together. ALL links are illegal and yet everyone uses them to rank, end of story!

    Google doesn't like to build any kind of paid link, even though it is coming from the outreach. it is also against the google policy.
    Will you stop link building?

    Only update if you want to act like a real site. If you don't care, then don't.

    I really hope this was ironic.

    Something that is against some company policies doesn't make it illegal. Makes it against company policies, that's all.

    @THUNDERELVI summed it up perfectly. PBNs are set and forget. And it's not too much about the frequency of the updates, it's about the size of the website to make it look more realistic. If I could get away with 1 pagers, I would go after 1 pagers, but sadly, this doesn't work anymore. Upload some articles once you build a site, schedule a few during the year and that's it. Nothing special, no extra effort after they are built.

    No extra effort, but lots of money to invest though mate, depending on the article quality and PBN size of course. That's why I use SPUN content for the filler articles in my PBN-s, which reduces the costs 5x at least. But then again, my spun articles are perfectly readable and would pass most manual reviews (unless the reviewers are looking for Pulitzer Prize winning articles lol), because the spinning process I use is different than the one most people use which produces absolute garbage.
