    Hi all,

    How many PBNs do I need to rank for a local keyword of 3000 monthly searches but with medium competition. If you take the No1 place in Organic (I was 2 years ago with no effort) You gain about 1200? per month with affiliate.

    I was young then and I started tell everybody about it and suddenly 20 sites appeared and outranked me.
    Learned my lesson but now I want to comeback :)

    Thank you

    Well.. there are PBN's with 5 and with 250.000 websites, with different amounts of authority, with different amounts of links on each website, etc. etc. so it's impossible to say how many you need.

    It would depend on the DA of the dropped domains you're using for your PBN.

    Simple answer is it depends.
    Try adding 2 links at a time, wait for a week and see if there are SERP movements. Tweak little by little till you hit number 1. You may need a lot, but if its a low to medium competition, I'd say less than 50 would do. Assuming all the PBNs has great backlinks.

    If you have good backlink profile for your pbn. It will do wonders and your website will rank even faster.

    It could be 5 or it could be 100 links. It's all about quality

    It will take 1 PBN to rank.

    You might need 20-50 sites, but it only takes 1 PBN.

    I am Building my Own PBN now and I buy domains almost every day. What I am asking is How many domains should I buy to have a decent PBN ?

    To be honest i have built pbn of about 60 sites 2 years ago. google algo recently crack down on links from PBN and money sites tanked. PBN websites are still indexed though, although the link juices are not useful anymore. just my 2 cents.

    As much as you can handle perfectly without leaving footprints. You don't need hundreds or thousands of them honestly, a bunch of great niche-specific domains will do magic for you. Just stay focused and organised. Wishing u luck with your PBN and rankings :thumb:

    Why so compliacted? Grab one or a few good domains, build your site(s), link your moneysite, see how it works out. If needed, add more. You shouldn't add too many links all at once anyway, so why not simply test and slowly move forward. If you decide to buy posts on third party PBNs (absolutely NOT recommended) I'd also do it slowly, step by step. The 20 sites probably didn't outrank you overnight, you won't get back on top overnight. Just start and keeping going until you are on top again.

    Reviewing your content, looking at your competitors what you could improve, certainly won't hurt, too. Links are one thing, but having the best content and a lot of it definitely makes the game a lot easier.

    If you want to keep the cost down start with 10 (with decent metrics like DA PA TF CF of 15 atleast) and then increase the number in batches of 5 or 10 till you reach the No.1 spot.

    To make it simpler. Find out the unique referring domains of your top 10 competitors using AHREFs. Find out its average. Target the quantity for your PBN with decent with 15+ TF/CF domain :)

    Make links naturally and eventually. Say the average referring domains for top competitors are 90. Make ONE blog per day for 3 months.

    You will surely outrank your competitors specially in case your keywords are med. competitive.
