    Heyho

    As you know there are industries where for example yelp sites or sites of local directories rank very well for certain keywords.

    What do you think about improving the ranking of a yelp site by using PBNs? I mean PBN linking directly to my site ABC seems to be quite risky these. But if the PBN is used to pimp the ranking of an authority site like yelp it could be fine. What do you think?

    Ok, the yelp site would still link to my own site ABC but it is now

    PBN --> Yelp --> ABC

    instead of

    PBN --> ABC

    has anyone experience with this? If the PBN gets deindexed would ABC still get penalized as hard as when I dont have this Yelp site between?

    Please share your thoughts!

    PS: I am not a SEO myself but I am thinking to say goodbye to my current SEO and therefore looking for new ideas.

    very interesting article, thanks for sharing.

    I am not sure though if his strategy really applies to directories for local businesses like yelp? As I understand his strategy mainly works based on simulating a viral effect by shooting tons of spammy social signals. But a yelp listing does not really get viral.

    A youtube vid or an article on tumblr, ok! But a viral effect on the yelp listing of a car repair shop would look very unnatural I guess.

    Directing the PBN to the yelp page, is giving that page extra juice/power so that page will rank higher.
    Using it as a buffer site will work and will follow the same principle as the Parasite SEO example I gave you, you can spam the shit out of it if you want, and it should not buckle.

    As for actually using a yelp page with this method, then I can't answer definitively as I have not tried it
    You could try asking one of the Local SEO experts like Texchan and get their opinion.

    thanks man for all the advice... Already love this forum

    Have you ever heard of any case that a site was penalized for using PBN when the PBN was pointing to a high authority site which was linking then to the money site? (Thus using the high authority site as buffer)

    Personally, I wouldn't do this, it would depend on the quality of the sites involved, but if you have a real high authority site pointing to your money site, then any gain would be minimal IMO. If you want to use buffers then use a few web2.0s

    There are a few PBN discussions on the forum, you should search them out for some tips.

    I definitely will check those threads!

    For me it is not so important to get the juice to my company site. I really want to rank the yelp / yellow pages listings themselves.

    My question is: if I rank a listing high with PBN and other blackhat techniques: If this listing gets penalized will my company site also be penalized? Because obviously I will have a backlink yelp ---> company site!
