    Hi,

    I recently got a mnaul action against my site for this content, but others have suggested its actually for getting caught using a PBN that was discovered.

    Has anyone else had manual actions against them for using PBN's which were deindexed?

    Other people have said the manual action is unrecoverable too.

    Thanks.

    Have you recently got thin content manual actions and also bought PBNs?

    I am thinking the PBNs are actually the cause of it.

    Yes I got also a manual review when I orderder a so called private pbn package on BHW. I filled 2 times a reconsideratoin but still no luck. I was moving my way to the top with manual link building till I got stuck at page 2/3 and decided to buy some links.

    If you have the money it is better to start building your own pbn than using someones network which has been molested 1000000 times.

    Any chance there is a BH (not necessarily BHW) SEO provider behind those PBN sites?

    You should have pointed those PBN links to a Tier 1 Web 2.0 and not directly on your money site.

    If this is true, then just point your PBN at random sites, contact their owners to clean up your links for $ 400.

    Either way, for as long as Google tries to control links on the WWW, they'll mess up somewhere. Links are equity, they will always be bought and sold no matter if Google likes it or not. Controlling the WWW is a lost battle and they know it.

    Many sites using PBN links got that thin content penalty during the last PBN deindexing. Based on that, we can safely conclude that your PBN links are the culprit.

    Hmm...thanks. I may just let them die then.

    Do u think my adsense account could be at risk from partaking in PBN related activities?
