    I was using a PBN to rank my sites and within a week, my sites got to the first page but after 2 weeks, it went slightly down to the second page and was wondering what is happening. Do i need to add more web 2.0s, or more PBNs? Suggestions? PM me if you want it to be private

    Perhaps the links pointing to your money site are not on the source's homepage anymore. Worth checking.

    ^ That

    +Check the pbn. most sellers sell too many links on pbn and the link juice gets diluted after some time.

    It could be that your competition is working harder, or it could be your PBN losing some of its strength.

    If your website is young it could be a little google dance?

    Why not spend your money and build your own truly private network. In the end you have more control the cost compared to the short term ROI you get with these networks is nothing. Build your own empire. Don't contribute to others.

    The way you build the PBN is super important. Firstly if you get expired domains (something I never recommend doing) make sure to check every single bit of their history, they might hold shitty links within that are not that easy to track.

    Then, start treating them as a normal domain, write loads of content, make sure to maintain the freshness on a monthly basis and overall just work on it as if it was your website. After a while (depending on amount of articles/images/etc) you are good to start linking.

    The main problem is that people build a pbn n start linking straight up, not only that but they also end up with tons of OBL... and that just devalues it and makes it PBN obvious.

    Exactly. Most of these SEO networks are total junk. They are so obvious. One manual review and poof, there goes your whole network. People need to stop being lazy and put some effort into their shit.

    The majority of peoples niches will not fall under a manual review.

    The main factors of your pbn links are power and relevance.

    To make the most out of it, you should make the site a broad theme on your niche, then have a single page with a Long tail version of your kw as the title.

    Then funnel most of the domain power to this one page, using many internal links of lsi anchors to your target page.

    Also, re above, to keep your domain powerful, make sure the fresh obl content that isn't for your own ranking sites, is buried a few levels deep, and not linked from the homepage, so you would have HP > News Page > News Category > News Post (with obl).

    Eventually in the next update, the page you funnel most of the power into will gain pr.

    op your site simply bounced

    google shot it to the first page, it wasn't worthy then it shot down

    link build, slowly or delay it for a bit. In a few weeks or so you should shoot back up slowly
