    Hello guys,

    I made a question a few days ago here on BHW, and I understood that there is a way to block bots from the tools discover all of your backlinks, but what I want to know now, is that, is there a way to hide only SOME of the backlinks, perhaps the good/strong ones, that I would like to keep away from my competitors?

    Beacuse I see a site is ranked #1 but non of the anchor texts they used is actualy the keyword they rank #1 for. They are using totally different acnhors to rank for (their brand name I think) and none of articles inside that web, actually has that backlink included. Does this mean I've found a super easy keyword to rank for? All the tools I tried (semrush, ahrefs,moz) indicate the score not above 10 (out of 100), for KW difficulty.

    You block the crawlers on the level of the individual PBN sites, not from your money site.
    If you want your competitors to be able to find your weaker PBN sites (although I'm not sure why you would want that), then simply don't block crawlers from accessing those sites.

    You have PBN sites, the purpose of these sites is to place links to your money site to increase their ranking.
    You want to stop your competitors from finding these sites, because they might report them to Google. In order to do this, it is necessary to stop backlink tools (Majestic, Ahrefs, etc.) from finding out that your PBN sites are linking to your money site. These backlink tools discover which backlinks a site has by constantly crawling the web with bots and following the links they find.
    In order to stop these backlink tools from seeing that their PBN is linked to their money site, people block the bots from visiting their PBN site's. This can be done through modifying the code in the .htaccess file, or through the use of plugins such as Spyder Spanker.
    If you do this, when a crawler from one of these backlink tools visits your PBN site it will get an Error 403 or 404, and not be able to access the site. Because of this, it cannot crawl your PBN site and find the link pointing to your money site. When your competitors go to check the backlinks of your site in one of these tools, the PBN sites do not show up, as the backlink tool crawler was not able to crawl your PBN site, and thus does not know that they exist.

    Why would you want to leave some sites unblocked?

    If you dont want to block the bot then dont put the plugin/code on the site.

    I checked the sites one by one and they dont seem to even include the keyword at least once in the page (one page did, but ONCE and it was a press release from 5-6years ago). What do u think? PS. Some of the sites are not even responsive (mobile friendly)

    If u hide all of ur backlinks ud be very suspicious, if u were to leave some unhiden, that'd be more convincing, thus not making the competitor look deeper.
    I was just asking for come other competitor, cause it seem unbelievable to rank with those crapy backlinks they have, some of the sites are not even responsive.

    Leaving a few links unblocked wont help you, it wont convince anyone.

    All it does if leave your PBN open for people to steal your niches, I was just PBN niche hunting today and found a few.

    But its up to you.

    What I mean is leave the ordinary links alone, and hide the strong ones (meaning PBNs).

    I dont think you understand, you block the crwalers on you PBN, it has nothing to do with your money site. It just hides that single link to your money site from your PBN.

    I don't think there is any way to block links that are on sites that you do not own, like a real link from a regular website, linking to your money site, the only way to hide links would be from sites that you own, like PBN's. I wouldn't worry about hiding real links, but I would hide all the PBN links that you have. But I am still very new, and I am sure someone here knows more than me about this stuff.
