The more you link, the more the juice is shared. Depends

Is it really worth blocking non google crawlers just so competitors can't find your links? if so, what's the safest way so SEs can't detect that you're blocking them? I actually find it really useful to have some PBN sites as projects in my ahrefs account so I can track their progress and always have up to date stats on them.

Yes it is. Especially in competitive niches.

People usually think that it's an easy giveaway of a PBN but it's not really the case.

If you can track the progress in public tools so can everyone else.

The more you link, the more the juice is shared. Depends

You have to make the calculation of what is worth to you more.

Giving one site super boost or two sites just a great boost for example.

how do I choose/find the best OBLs to link to (other than my money site) making sure my money site get's the best link juice without being detected and without unnecessarily boosting competitor sites?

Are you referring to authority sites linking?

First of all, don't do Wikipedia.

Authority sites in your niche should be well known but also do not compete for the same keywords. They usually have lot of traffic, links, high stats like DR and pop up for searches all over the place.

yes, that's what I mean. I really struggle with deciding what OBLs to choose so it doesn't affect the ranking of my money site and also doesn't look like an obvious PBL where there are inks to high DR sites and then one link to my money site.
what is a good resource for this issue?

I don't know any resource that covers this topic specifically.

It is quite simple though. When you mention a fact, event etc you can cite a source.

This source should ideally not be your competitor, be popular in your niche and cover the pic well. Attributes mentioned before apply.

PROS:
- great power & link juice

- anchor text diversity

- only need few of these puppies usually for major rank increase

CONS:
- expensive when scaling is required

VERDICT: Recommended!

PBN unit homepage linking to multiple different money site pages.

This is probably the most common scenario.

Linking to multiple money sites from the same PBN unit.

PROS:
- decent power / juice if you keep OBL (outbound link count) below 20 (ideally below 10)
- anchor text diversity

CONS:
- lowering power / link juice because of increasing OBL with each link

VERDICT: Recommended!

The same PBN unit homepage linking to multiple pages of the same money site.

Here is where people usually mess up and don't get results they want.

Linking to multiple pages on the same money site gives so called diminish returns.

Diminishing returns is like running against the wind. You keep pushing forward harder and harder but wind is getting stronger and stronger so the end result is that you end up going backwards.

PROS:
- power / juice to the first linking page
- anchor text diversity of individual pages

CONS:
- diminishing returns
- waste of time waiting for results
- potential flag because of oblivious sign of "connection" between websites

VERDICT: Not recommended!

PBN unit homepage and multiple inner pages linking to one and the same money site page.

This is what is happening by default if you build PBN links by publishing homepage posts.

Your post sits on the homepage but the post page itself also gets indexed so link comes from inner page as well.

This is OK as homepage will get priority.

However... if you push this further and keep building links from inner pages you will once again encounter diminishing returns.

Homepage (or the page engines discovered first) link will count fully and only thing that will count from inner pages is anchor text. So you can use it for diversity.

PROS:
- power / juice to the first linking page
- anchor text diversity

CONS:
- diminishing returns
- potential flag because of oblivious sign of "connection" between websites

VERDICT: Not recommended!

Multiple inner pages of the same PBN unit linking to multiple page of the same money site.

This can be quite effective if you do it in moderation, actually. Especially if the PBN pages are powered by direct backlinks.

I wouldn't do more than 5 pages personally.

PROS:
- power / juice if individual pages are backed by links
- anchor text diversity of individual pages

CONS:
- potential flag because of oblivious sign of "connection" between websites
- potential diminishing returns but I haven't encounters them with all cases, it's tricky

VERDICT: OK with moderation

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

There are other linking scenarios but they are not as common.

Feel free to share your experience and testing results.


Hope this makes your PBN life clearer and easier ;)
Hi what did you mean by anchor text diversity ?

It means you are in charge of the PBN so you can decide what anchor to use. You can diversify your anchors according to your needs.

As you can see I highlighted this point for all scenarios.
did you mean i can diversify my anchors in multiple different money site pages ( second scenario) or in each pbn unit ?
