Everybody here always says the domains in your PBN have to be high quality. All links should be legit. If there are any signs of SEO being done to the domain, don't buy it. The content should be high quality and not spun. Domains should not be dropped. there is a site that is ranking for a very competitive keyword (a law keyword, $150 per click). It's been there for at least 4 months. It is using a PBN but all domains in this network are garbage (think luois-vuitton-handbags.info) and all the content is spun garbage. guy has been ranking for 4 months and doesn't seem to be going anywhere. So I think you should be less worried about your PBN and just build the damn thing instead of waiting for the perfect domains to buy (which you will not buy anyway because the price will be so damn high) Am I right? yes? no? maybe?
