    I live in Europe in a small country and a friend of mine who ranks for really competitive kwds gave me a phone number of an agency here in Europe who sells domains for a fixed price of $55, they gave me a list and this are some samples of domains:


    No PR - .NL domains - Dutch Kwds - Registered 2003 - DA51 / PA59

    So do I get these domains as as I see their metrics are high, or do I get normal .com .net domains
    How do these foreign domains perform in a PBN?

    Foreign domains are fine in the mix, but I wouldn't use one extension only for a larger network. Always make sure to check the requirements for registering the domain, some ccTLDs require a local presence/adress (some registrars offer trustee services to avoid this requirement), some won't support privacy. Not a problem, but there are people buying domains and wondering why the privacy button can't be activated ;)

    The agency sells domains to companies only and they have an option to register to an employee which means I can give any address and name for the domain to be registered. I am worried if Google sees that all domains are on same domain register. Domains are mostly .nl but some are .eu .fr as well. But none .com or .net might be good to get couple of domains to try and see how it ranks.

    Foreign tld's are ok to use. However, I would aim to make the network look as natural as possible (for longer-term projects). It all depends on your goals and what you want to achieve.

    For example: If you want to rank a website in the UK, don't build a network of domains that all have a .de (german) tld.

    dont forget to check the anchors too, and to have a look in the archive machines, I check daily for dropped domains in some Euro country, just may be about 1k per each of the main country, there are many spammed domains, I am sure that company weed them out, but still have a good look
