    To prevent duplicate content, do you use excerpts for posts in Wordpress? I'm talking about PBNs.

    The problem is, won't that make you lose a homepage backlink to your money site? I assume home page links are more powerful.
    On the other hand, it won't have duplicate content penalization potential.

    Nothing screams PBN as full articles on the hompage. This is a really old technique and people should stop using it too much. It's so easy to indentify a PBN purely based on this. It raises red flags all over the place, so I wouldn't post full homepage articles to more than 10% of my PBN sites.

    Got it. But is it more powerful if the link comes from the home page?

    Mix it up, but as @Nargil said, it screams pbn.

    One of my networks has around 30 sites with rolling homepage. I link out to about 5 money sites and it gives me a ROI.

    Whether or not you should use them, is up to your personal circumstances/needs
