    Hello!

    First post here, I've started up a very small PBN, just wondering how you guys measure if it's working or not? Are there certain metrics you keep an eye on? Do you just look at the page that the PBNs link to?
    Any advice is welcome! Thanks!

    Yes I've read many of the PBN tutorials and posts on here including that one. What I want to know is how to check to see if the PBN is actually transferring domain authority or traffic. I want to know whether making thesePBNs is actually worth the time I've been spending on them.

    Nothing noticeable. The links are being indexed and the kw's I'm using for the PBN are ranking but I only have 5 sites because I'm testing the method.

    Go check the backlinks of your PBNs. See what the metrics are for those backlinks. The only other method is to link and find where your money site ranks. If with 5 links you are able to get movement to your keywords then you are doing somethings right. So, it is time to scale it up.

    5 Links is nothing and you will need to build backlinks to the PBN's one way or another!

    There are backlinks going to the PBNs as well.

    With my money site there are just so many factors like on-page seo, money site backlinking, etc. that I don't know whether or not the PBN are causing any movement. How do you guys measure huge PBNs' effects on your money site?

    It's hard to mesure, you normaly see a huge ranking improving during the 2-3 following weeks if you put homepage backlinks on strong domain.

    Focus on creating a back links and links that you have are very less,though you are in a testing stage look for the best links that in way results in good ranking.

    You will need to build backlinks to the PBN's.

    Create quality backlinks to your PBN and wait for the improvements. Hopefully, you will get good ranking.

    The way to check it is working or not is backlinks.
    Backlinks to your pbns is the only method to check it is working or not in this you can check traffic and ranking of your site.

    I'm sorry if I wasn't clear in my posts. I have my PBN built, backlinks have been built to PBN sites and are continuing to be built. So I'm find in that regard.

    I want to know how to measure the PBN's effect on my Money Site. How do I know if the PBN is actually doing anything positive for the Money Site? Is there quantifiable data any of you measure?

    The whole point with PBN's is that they already have strong links, so why should he start building links to them?

    Yep I checked their backlink profiles, checked if they were indexed, looked at their PA,DA,TF,CF all of that.

    I don't think the whole point is that they have strong links. The point is that their age and existing metrics would provide stronger backlinks to the money site over a newly created domain.

    You are wrong. And thats why you don't see any increase in ranking. Your domains probably don't have any link juice.

    Well I know it helps but your PBNs aren't required to have a strong backlink profile right when you buy them. Obviously they can't have spammy backlinks but if they only have a couple other legit backlinks I think that's fine. Just build them out yourself.


    Anyways I guess since no one can answer my question, no one is actual able to measure whether or not their PBN is actually doing anything for their money site? So how do we even know they work?
