    Hi

    So I have been into SEO business since past 10 years now. We have been using Link Authority previously for 4 years but then dropped as we moved towards PPV and Affiliate Incoming.

    So now we're back with SEO and generating good clients.

    Wanted to check if anybody on the forum is still using Link Authority as PBN service provider? I was getting good results, the last time I tried them. Not sure about their Article service, have not used.

    If not Link Authority, any other PBN which you would suggest?

    I have used Sherlock Holmes in past too..


    Cheers Mate!

    I personally wouldn't suggest you purchase any PBN links for "good clients." It's extremely risky to put your clients websites in the hands of someone selling PBN links in bulk. Do your clients know you are using PBN links and have you explained the risks to them? If they are good clients, and you want to use blackhat services for them, I would make them pay more money or take a smaller profit margin for yourself, and pay someone to create blogs dedicated only for your clients use.

    Here is a guy offering a service where he will set up a blog for you to use as part of your own PBN:

    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/p...rints-boost-your-rank-with-your-pbns.1117106/

    There are other similar services in the marketplace, but basically, I am just saying, if you care about your clients and want to do this as a long term safe project, you should take full control over the PBN's yourself to maximize safety, even if the link juice will be lower to start.

    Hi SocialManager,

    Appreciate your response!

    So, are you suggesting we should build our private network rather than using someone else's service? Isn't it like re-inventing the wheel?

    If there is a good service provider like the Link Authority, Sherlock Holmes, etc. Which are posting on good websites with good SERP juice?

    ----

    Yes, my clients are aware that the clicks go on the PBNs but yes they do hope that the link they're getting is from an authority website and now low juice website.

    ----

    I'll check on the PBN setup service too. It does look good. Thank you for suggestion.

    There are PBNs and there are pbns.

    Some are super powerful PBN services where the domains cost $200, $500 or more from auctions and these are the dogs bollocks.
    Then there are the pbns where the domain was picked up as an expired domain, cost $15 and these can prove to be toxic, especially 18 months down the line where the seller hasn't bothered to renew the domain.

    Creating your own gives you total control, however it boils down to your budget and expertise in creating these sites.

    i just bought two loads of pbn links and they tanked my site im currently in the process of requesting the links to be removed from the sellers !!

    theres definitely a lot of lovely infographics here which clearly misrepresent the service thats actually on offer ! anyone has recommendations for a good PBN would love to know !

    the only good PBN is the one you create yourself and dont share with others. PBN services are link farms and not real PBNs so they are also less effective.

    Took me a few years, some costly mistakes and speed bumps along the way to get to that point. Looking back now, should have paid someone to mentor me through a couple of them from the start.

    it is not reinventing the wheel if you build your own pbn. it takes longer to get to the desired outcome, but you will be in full control. well worth it.

    Hi MisterF,

    Appreciate your response. Well, I totally got what you mean in terms of the quality of the PBN and we being on the customer side cannot be always sure about the same.

    I guess the only way is to try a PBN service, see where the links are being posted and I'll keep you guys posted ! :) :)


    Thank you

    Did you purchase it from Link Authority? or any other PBN?

    I agree, it's just that in the initial time it would be a lot of hassle. In terms of purchasing domains, maintaining them, articles, publishing. An all in all solution would be good.

    I agree having our own ride is always better, but sometimes using uber is more convenient/relaxing.


    Cheers!

    How much time it took you for your PBN? How big is your PBN? number of domains?


    Cheers!

    From my experience, any PBN being sold publicly is absolute garbage. There are LOTS of scammers and people selling trash to make a quick buck in that field.

    They do have SOME value, but don't expect to just buy any PBN service and magically rank. You can use them to link tier 2 sites or blend them in with other link building strategies, but other then that, you're safer building your own network for any type of long term success.

    On my BST service there's nearly 150 sites now with more being added monthly. My private network is much bigger.

    I can try to help you out with some pointers if you would like, shoot a PM with one of your current PBNs and we can take a look.

    Challenge accepted :D . But seriously @LordCameltoe, you're right, the majority should be pointed at tier two properties. There are a couple of services though that try to offer money site worthy PBNs.

    Fair enough, but the average link buyer will have to go through a few thousand dollars in tests to find those quality link providers - which is somewhat disheartening for people getting started in this game.

    True, but if you're willing to sift through it all and read the reviews/recommendations outside of the marketplace threads then you can find some pearls in there. Admittedly though, I did lose money on the marketplace buying some horrible links.

    @Hetneo - Would you prefer the links purchased from your PBN to be used for the main website? or for the 2nd tier links?

    It's not really appropriate for him to discuss his BST thread outside of PM or his sales thread. It comes across as pre-sales and it's not allowed as far as I know. So, he can get in trouble by replying too much about his own BST. Look up his BST and ask questions in there, and then other users who are interested in his service can always see the information he provides!

    Well, I've used LinkAuthority in the past and even Sherlock Holmes, previously I was getting pretty good results with LA, I hope the quality is still the same.

    Placed an order with them, also purchased basic article package. Let's see :)

    Appreciate the suggestion.

    Cheers!

    The above is a true answer. Good advice.
    I tried with 6 pbn sellers off here, nada, no rank improvement. It forced me to build my own.
    If there is a pbn seller who can give good results, please let me know.
