Well I could not care less about some of the replies but it seems that people are not smart enough to realise I was trying to create as much attention as possible with such a thread. However the underline point to be discussed here is whether or not the PBNs are really on the downslope or not, despite doing everything one can to keep footprints to a minimum.OP they're messing with you. It isn't dead as long as the search function of Google is still there.
This was more of what I was looking for, a serious answer despite my "noobish" question. Thank you for clarifying this for me. The guy seemed convinced it had to do with his PBNs, but ye I'll take your word for it as it doesnt really sound logical to me that it had anything to do with PBN afterall.First of all, the site mentioned in the linked blogpost got a "thin content" penalty. In contrast to what is stated in the blogpost, this is a penalty 100% related to content and not links. Google recently seems to hand out more of these, especially to Amazon based "review sites", but it's not PBN related at all. It just means that cheap cookie cutter content not adding any value and fake reviews composed from Amazon customer reviews don't work well any more. Not really news.
PBNs are certainly a top priority for Google, they will keep de-indexing whatever they find, but I don't see any algorithmic solution or a better than usual detection coming soon. They are far from dead.
I dont know if you meant me or the blogger. But my plan was to build PBN from scratch and treat it like a diamond. Either way thank you for a serious answer.I'm pretty sure this guy is confused on the difference between a PBN and buying links on a "PBN"
Ok guys. 1 reply is enough, it gets boring when the 10th person drops "Yeah it is dead.".
