    Hi all,

    I want to ask some questions about how to keep my PBN really Private.

    1. How to block all spy bots from htaccess and let only google to pass ? and is the only level of security I can use ?
    2. Can I block all IPs except mine from viewing my Website ? I mean, even if someone finds out my blog, nobody can see it except me. Maybe this is not natural for a site but is a way to stay Private.

    What do you Think ?

    Thanks all

    If you will block all IPs how search engines will crawl your PBN? Also, if you want to block bots using .htaccess, check this article: thesitewizard [.] com/apache/block-bots-with-htaccess.shtml

    I know I might get flamed for this :cool:

    The best way to find out is search the forum. Ghosting PBNs is kinda bread and butter for BH SEOs now so you'll find everything you need.

    The main areas to worry about are:

    1. Making sure you spread out your PBN across IP addresses. Class 3 and stuff like that is not good enough, just setup accounts on multiple cheap shared hosts.
    2. Make sure you're not using the same WordPress themes and styles. Try to make each site look like it's been designed in a totally different way.
    3. Block bot using .htaccess (There are posts on here about that) don't bother using robots.txt because it's a footprint in itself.
    4.Use fake whois info, don't simply block your whois data. Try to keep addresses and names different on each domain. Managing the email addresses and stuff can be hard, it's a good idea to break out Excel or Open Office and keep a spreadsheet of everything because you will forget!!!

    Do plenty of reading on this forum, understand the technical aspects of what you're trying to achieve and then have a plan to secure everything up you can roll out across your network nice and easy.

    Btw blocking all IPs except Google from visiting your site is the oldest trick in the BH book. It was called cloaking back in the day and isn't worth the risk. By using WordPress, keeping it updated and taking care of the security aspect you'll be good to go. The ideal scenario is that all your PBN sites look official anyway so when competitors look they don't see anything weird anyway.

    The most important security aspect is the one nobody talks about either! The human factor! Don't tell a soul about your network, keep your spreadsheets secured on your own PC and keep everything to yourself. Loose lips sink ships!!!

    Thanks for info.

    When I say block IPs I mean user IPs not search engines

    The best way to secure your network is to be RANDOM and not going in patterns. Say you've 7 PBNs, it's unwise to protect WHOIS of all of them, because it becomes a pattern. Throw some fake info, protect some, be random. About the building part, I personally make it look real. It feels like an original site - create social accounts and put them on the site, use free alluring themes, add pages, customize footer and put evergreen content.

    Nobody looks at your PBNs, except your competitors! So you wanna make sure it doesn't look like a PBN. Also, it's unwise to block all bots on all PBNs because it's another footprint. Be natural!

    How many of my sites should I link from 1 PBN ?And what is the ratio of outgoing links per unlinked content. I mean I must post 5 x500 without links or links to hight authority sites of my nich. then i post one post to my site the 2 without links then 1 to my other site etc. and after 5-6 links to my sites i must keep updating the content once a month at least.

    I recommend linking only 1 money site per PBN, at maximum 2 but don't go aggressive. Add very few links of authority sites as they take away the link juice, keep the number very small. Let's say you posted 3 articles on your PBN, the top article should link to your money site while you can add each link in the other 2 articles to make it look natural, but not more than that. 3 articles = 3 links

    Updating the content isn't required but recommended. Best way is to just produce evergreen content like some kind of a beginner's guide or timeless content to keep things easy.
