    I have a local business site that has PBN sites pointing to it.
    Can I point PBN sites to my top citation pages (with do follow links) and still get
    link juice to maintain my rank?

    Is there a better way to do this?
    Open to ideas to transition to whitehat which moves
    PNB from directly pointing to money site or removes
    PBN completely. Ideas?

    IMO using PBN to rank for local is overkill unless you're playing in a major metro like NYC.

    You can rank in local with a lot less and the time you spend setting up a PBN and managing it would be best spent on developing the local money site directly instead.

    Build some authority links or Web 2.0's and have the PBN links point to them(tier 2).

    I would suggest going after local/relevant links. Takes more time but the results will stick and saves you the paranoia of getting a site slapped down.

    How much link juice is lost by having PBN links point to tier 2?

    Ended up pointing the PBN sites to high PR do-follow citation pages.
