    Do PBN metrics specifically Trust Flow, decline over time?

    Does blocking majestic through robots.txt and htaccess affect a PBN's Trust Flow?

    Has anyone experienced this?

    Well it depends. It will affect your money site Trust Flow, because the links won't be accessible on the PBN, therefore not present in your money site backlink profile.
    it will not affect the PBN sites themselves because their backlink profile are still accessible.

    But overall, it doesnt matter if you end up with a low trust flow on your money site, it's just an indicator. What matters is that Google can crawl those PBN and see the links.

    Yeap. It will decrease and your rankings will decrease as well :(

    /SARCASM !!!

    TF =/= Rankings. It's just a matric a third party provides.

    It shouldn't do as Majestic can still crawl your backlinks, but it can't crawl your internal links so it can't work out the metrics for individual pages.

    TF will nout be counted for the money site.

    And how does TF affect you in any way unless you are trying to sell something on that domain or selling the domain itself >

    You want your TF low, because it will confuse your competition thanks to your hidden PBN links. So the TF of your website does not matter whatsoever.
