    Time to time, I come across people who are spending money acquiring high quality domains and then doing very little to build them. This really has to change if you want your PBN to survive the next Google sweep.

    So before I begin to describe to you what a real PBN looks like, I want you to change your mindset, I WANT TO CHANGE YOUR MINDSET. I want you to think that you, a Blackhatter, are having a war against Google that goes on non stop 24/7/365. Google, with all its updates, is trying best to destroy your puny efforts. But all of this can change, you can change it. But you can only change it if you consider the big picture. You can either build a PBN that won?t survive the next Google sweep or you can spend some time on your PBN, give it the love that it deserves, make the site look real and watch it survive any update and every update.

    Step 1:
    Acquire a mixture of high authority and niche relevant domains. You can get these from us or anywhere for that matter but a mixture of domains that have high DA/PA or TF/CF along with some niche relevant domains that may or may not have high seo metrics is the key to higher rankings. With such a PBN you can achieve this

    Step 2:
    Host your PBN across multiple shared hosting accounts or use something like pazhosting.com that does all the work for you without the risk of any footprints.


    Step 3:
    DO NOT USE WORDPRESS ON ALL YOUR SITES! Using wordpress across all your PBN domains is the laziest mistake that you can ever make. Learn to use other CMS, almost all web hosts come with Softaculous and it contains a wide variety of platforms for you to use.


    Step 4:
    Use different themes, add a custom logo, add about us, contact us, privacy policy pages.


    Step 5:
    When it comes to content, most people just add content to their homepage in the standard format. However, have you ever considered using a silo format on your PBN sites as well? Have you considered how much more real it looks if you?ve got a static homepage that is linking to a bunch of inner pages and then those inner pages are linking to the homepage? For those who don?t know what a silo format looks like, here?s an image


    [​IMG]

    If you are not using this format on your moneysites then you?re losing a lot of link juice. Try switching your PBNs and moneysites to this format and then leave a comment below about how it affects your rankings.


    Step 6:
    Most people make the mistake of building backlinks to their PBN sites homepage, now that you have a silo structure going on, you can build backlinks to the inner pages as well.


    So there you have it folks, it?s REALLY that SIMPLE. I know all of this will just increase your budget but trust me, the benefits are worth it!

    My intention was not to promote my domain selling business, I get enough sales already as it is. I am not forcing anyone to buy domains from us only. However, I knew there would be some negative comments and there is nothing wrong with that. We all have our own opinions. Those guides that you mentioned go into more about domain acquisition than setting up the PBN itself. My guide is more about setting up a PBN that can survive the mass PBN deindexations like the recent one.

    Yep, I CHOSE to show a work in progress because those are some of the most difficult keywords I'm working on right now. A client came up to me with those keywords 1 and a half months ago and this is what I've been able to achieve for him within this time.

    This info has been rehashed countless times already.
    Furthermore I strongly disagree with your step 3 about not using wordpress on all your sites.
    In my experience using wp exclusively does no harm and I have yet to see any proof of it doing so. If memory serves right, over a fifth of self hosted websites use the wp platform which makes your point completely laughable.

    How suspicious would it look for a Google employee to overview 10 suspected PBN sites and all 10 use Wordpress CMS?

    If you are at a point where Google is manually reviewing your site, chances are the CMS you use will hardly matter.

    Yes. What's the point of repeating when more detailed guides have been created.

    Why? A proper PBN should go unnoticed. Keyword a proper PBN, not the crap 90% of people are actually creating.

    Dj Co2,

    despite all the negative comments it's nice to see that your rankings are going up even after the big updates. Now that's some solid SEO work right there that most people here are unfamiliar with. No doubt in todays SEO world you need to have a PBN for constant high rankings. It would be nice to get into some details on the quantity and metrics of the PBN you built such as:

    1. How many blogs did you build for that client?

    2. What is the PR and other general metrics of the blogs?

    3. I notice in your thread you usually sell expiring domains as opposed to most sellers here that sell expired domains. I understand both have their value but
    what would you recommend? and why?

    4. If you build a 50 site PBN and have 3 - 4 keywords you want to rank on different URLs, how do you divide the links? Do you ever link to 2 pages on the same site from one blog?

    5. Did you client get hit by penguin 3 at all? even a slight drop in rankings?

    Thanks for the post and I will really appreciate it if you could answer my questions.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Thanks for the tip on the silo structure. I'm new to PBNs and that's good helpful info for me.

    What? I didn't do my "homework" because I vaguely stated that roughly a fifth of the self hosted sites on the web runs on WP and you prove that it's ACTUALLY 19 percent? That article is over a year ago and I can darn well assure you that WP has increased their market share a bunch since then.

    When you say you've "done your homework" - what the fuck are you referring to other than rewriting a couple of paragraphs of other guides?
    I wouldn't be surprised if you're affiliated with PazHosting since I don't see any other reason why you would post this junk thread.

    when he says he done his homework he literally means he's done his homework, time for mommy to tuck him in soon.
