So I think it's pretty safe to say most SEOs on this forum have a PBN or buy PBN links. Buying links can be beneficial but when the network doesn't require approval, it only takes 1 idiot to cause problems for the whole network. Additionally, niche and geo-specific networks are handy for local clients, so building your own network is always a decent idea. However, building out a 20 site network just for your 1 money site is quite the expense when you look at the cost of monthly content. Now if you took those 20 sites and divided up the cost across 2-4 people, the upkeep price isn't so bad. But also, your money will go a lot further! Have PBNs hit the point of popularity on this forum that would make a section specifically for finding PBN partners justifiable? I would be interested in beta testing a section that would be like a joint venture section but specifically geared towards matching groups of people together to create a PBN. It's pretty far fetched but I think a lot of members would benefit from it. For the price that some people are paying for PBN posts, they could own 1/5th of a high quality, safe network of their own.
