    Is there a way to test your PBN to see if your PBN is worthy before setting a link to your money site?

    You don't need to test anything if you did your homework and chose a worthy domain to be part of your blog network. The whole point of carefully choosing expired domains, spam checking them, etc... is done so once you acquire the domains, you link out to your sites immediately (after building the sites of course).

    No need to test your PBN. Just make sure you have a good quality content.

    It's not a waste of time - that's bad advice.

    What do people check exactly when they are buying domains? TF CF DA, history? Obviously that's a good starting point but the proof is in the backlinks pointing to the site.

    If you buy a lot of domains are you going to check every backlink to every site? Do tools like majestic and ahrefs uncover every single link? No they don't.

    It's therefore possible that you can make a mistake.

    Test on third party sites - page 2 for the KW's you are targeting. If the PBN's are good, you know all is well. If you see a negative impact it's very unlikely it's going to wipe out a site and someone else's income and you know you have made a mistake.

    What are you talking about? You actually link your PBN to other sites first to test? You overrate the power of one link. You are not going to see any movements at all on a established site with just one link.

    3. No I don't.
    4. Don't test on an established site.

    If you avoid footprints while building your PBN, you don't get worry on PBN that if I testing or not. Use quality links ie., more authority links to build your PBN with more authority.

    Most important post in this thread. If you buy a domain with decent backlinks and no weird Chinese or GSA spam you're good to go.

    YES!
    The most ridiculous answer I have read so far, point the valuable PBN links at your competitors and help them rank and waste your time in the process, yeah sure!

    Hmmmm let's see, it takes about a good two months to build a 20/30 site PBN, then you are first going to test it which will take another 2/3 months to get some trustworthy results, well if ROI isn't an isseau for you and you suck at selecting domains this is the way to go, real webmasters however (and with that i mean people who are in this shit to make money) don't have that kind of time...

    Waste who's time? Not yours your to busy checking and finding thousands of links remember. I'm way ahead of you at this stage you haven't even bought the domains yet.

    Two months to build 20-30 PBN's?! Ha ha.

    Not everyone is a "real webmaster" like your good self. Some "normal people" are pointing links at client sites and would prefer not to take the risk.

    I think I should leave this thread now :)

    Waste your time trying to find out if the PBN links "work" or not. Seriously, have you even done SEO before?
    Lol, you are ahead of me? First of all, I pay people to find and spam-check my domains for me. Second of all, you don't need to check thousands of links per domain. In 90% of the cases, if a domain has thousands of links, they will most probably be spam. All it takes is a few minutes only to spot the spam. Third, I don't even target domains with thousands of links (because of the reason in the 2nd statement), I find domains with few dozens of RD backlinks that are from high authoritative/quality websites. And last, by the time it takes you to measure if a PBN domain is worth it or not, I have already built 1-2 medium-sized networks and ranked lots of keywords.

    If you build a good PBN with strong domains, great content and all the saveties then yes it will take such a long time, but i guess you don't know that cus judging from your BS postings you have never build a real PBN in your freaking life, cus if you did, you would NOT have to test it, you would know your PBN is top notch, alsp you seem know nothing about doing real test and accumulating data in SEO, you're just a n00b who wants to sound like a PBN guru on BHW, when is your BST coming out..... mate.
