    all my pbns are not ranking anything due to google update or what?
    i found google had big update on targeting pbn links
    i used to rank in a week with facebook page
    i tried to rank several fb pages but it got vanished from serp! after i had put the pbn links to it
    but since last 1 month nothing ranks with my 50 pbns even they are indexed
    do you know anything about the google update
    see this blackhatworld.com/seo/silent-update-on-pbns.913084/
    and suggest me please whats the solution for my pbns to work again like before?

    Make them authority sites. So that Google will think that it is authority site.
    And try to check if you left any footprint.

    Too many threads about this in the last few weeks. PBN's still work, period. This is from data using thousands of keywords (both via clients and personal).

    Sure, it might be getting harder to rank with PBN's but that's the game we're in. Learn to adapt.

    I can tell you that some of my websites went down after linking from my PBN's. Not sure why.... no footprints , weekly posts (with no links) , unique IP's etc. :\

    PBNs are perfectly fine and I can assure you, there are no indexation issues. What is the problem is, that you are building crappy PBNs and you get hit way too easily. You've been cutting corners and the result is, you got banged. That's all there is to that. And regarding indexation issues, those are due to the fact that you are using spammy domains with terrible history. Clean domains get indexed in no time without any help at all. Adapt. And feel free to read this, that will help you to get some grasp on current events - https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/c...osts-metrics-spam-and-niche-relevancy.916518/

    Yes, SEO is dead. They now use a random number generator to decide how everything ranks.

    Pack it up, boys (and girls). It was good while it lasted.

    Most of those articles are from 2014, so they don't really apply to anything that might be going on now.

    Footprint is a way to connect all your PBN sites together that makes them easy for Google to find and penalize them with a one easy click of the button. :)

    Will this impact on websites that have backlinks on those PBN blogs? I have few websites that have backlinks on PBN blogs and my crawl speed dropped to almost 0....
