    Hello,

    I am building my pbn, it is at 3 domains so far.

    The metrics are OK, got a few PA 30s and TF 15s.

    How important is relevance?
    Cause let's say my PBN domain is about yugioh cards while my niche site is about blenders.

    Will that hurt my site?

    Edit: I don't know what "good metrics" represent. What metrics should I be ideally looking for?

    over the last few days ive done loads of research into other peoples pbns that are rnaking for their money sites..

    from what i have seen, it doesn't appear that domain name relevancy really matters.. they surround their backlinks with relevant articles

    im in the process of making my pbn and they are all generic sites.. like "my ramblings about life" or.. Sallys Blog on living in 2016 or other crap like that

    Most public PBNs are random irrelevant domains... but if you can find a domain that used to be exactly in your niche you can try to recreate it and it's HIGH relevancy is VERY valuable.

    I'd rather have one recreated baseball news PBN for a baseball glove website than 5 used-to-be-fashion-blog PBNs. The only way I'd use an irrelevant domain for a site's PBN is if it has AMAZING links like CNN and stuff.

    Not that important, look at popular niches even those guys use irrelevant PBN domains.

    Niche related post or category in your PBN will work.

    Most of the people use any domain name as long as their content is relevant to the niche.

    The best thing is to find domains with authentic metrics that haven't been abused since so many with good metrics have been spammed to elevate the metrics. So honestly, most of the lower metric domains are actually real and don't have bad signals.

    Relevance is irrelevant if it is at domain level, however when we talk about contextual links ensure that they are relevant to the links that you post in the articles.

    Not sure if that is low-key an ad to your signature but I totally agree. All the domains with sick metrics have either Chinese/Japanese history in the past 5 years or they have been 301 redirected to an unrelated site in the past. Sad :(

    Best to have. But tough to get. Even if you do not get those type of domains it will have good impact on ranking if you build a blog with good metric close to your site's topic and get links from relevant content .

    what matters mostly is the article your link is placed into , dont overthink , make sure your on page is perfect , keep adding content , build more pbns , diversify the backlink profile , a few social signals and most importantly PATIENCE

    You are not receiving links from some brand new website that nobody has ever heard of, you are receiving links from a popular website Google's algorithm loves.

    The main thing what you have to do is to find the niche what will be suited to you,that only will be good and work better for good ranking.
