Is it just me or are people really paranoid when it comes to the number of sites you link from PBN

    I asked a couple of guys how many money-sites they link from a PBN. I know there is no standard answer here.

    A lot of guys have just 1 MS linking from the PBN which does not really seem cost effective.

    I know people like playing it safe with Google getting paranoid with the updates. But link sellers(even the good ones) have an OBL of 10-15 without running into any issues.

    I ask this because I plan on setting up 8-10 websites in the coming 6 months and cannot build a separate PBN for each as my budget is tight.

    What I plan to do is build all MS and PBNs in the same niche. About 10 links/PBN

    What are your thoughts.?

    I do 4-5 links max from each pbn site. I think it all comes down to how much risk are you willing to take. Sellers on this forum go even beyond 20 obl on their pbn sites.

    If one link to your money site from a PBN isn't cost effective, then I'd suggest that you're in the wrong niches.

    Indeed, I never send more than 10 links from my PBN to a site. No matter if it's a client or anything. You don't want those kind of patterns following your PBN. As it is, PBNs have become the next big thing and google is no doubt taking measures to solve the inevitable issue. Think long term.

    Why build a PBN? Why not build a network of money sites in a closely related niche and then on your money sites write an article about the other niche and link off with the "to learn more about x check out my other site allaboutx.com" or something. Then instead of PBNs you're just building money sites and don't even have to worry about hiding your footprint and all that.
    I have started doing that, and gave up on my traditional PBNs. I figured if Google wants to penalize me they will, I actually PERSONALLY feel, that I am at less of a risk doing this than building a PBN, since I am providing value. I PERSONALLY feel this might pass a manual review, since I am not building my sites for links but rather each site is built to answer a need/question.

    The idea of build piece of crap pbn's is way behind us.

    All my sites are built and should pass a manual review, i've spent hours building most of them. They all look like legit sites and pass relevant traffic.

    Don't build crappy blog networks with like just the 2012 wordpress theme...

    lol. That is not what I meant. I mean building a separate PBN (30-40) isn't cost effective. Atleast for me right now.

    So you're saying make money sites and link them together? Like Link wheels? What is it? 2010?

    Can people stop using the term PBN - It stands for private if you can buy links for it, it aint private. A true private blog network is one you build yourself. These are just blog networks people create on the sole basis of making cash. Chances are if you buy one from the market place it won't hurt you now but if they keep selling to that site it's just a matter of time.

    @patriotnews

    Never interlink your money sites. That is a massive footprint right there.

    Wish people stop saying a pbn is expensive
    You can use a cheap host for $6 and then use a exspire domain provider and get a domain $6 then use scrape box do the rest simple......

    1 link from the pbn to the money site works best.

    Same niche 10 links to money sites works grate

    I like 1 link from my pbn and then creates others as going along.

    If the niche website hosting domain all earn me cash the cost is Nothink.
