    We use a great service that basically snaps local TLDs which we then buy and use as a PBN towards our site.

    The results are great, but what is worrying is that it leaves a footprint, which is visible in LinkDetox/LinkResearchTools.
    It connects all 100 domains as being part of the same neighbourhood (which it is).

    Obviously LinkResearchTools will not tell us what is behind the SUSP23 code that we get:
    http://www.linkresearchtools.com/news/link-detox-genesis/#SUSP22-24

    What we do know and what we have gotten confirmed is that it's not related to WHOIS or IP though.

    Does any PBN experts have any ideas what could cause the footprint?

    Hosting nameservers.

    Really though who cares. Linkresearchtools are garbage, what are you worried about anyways?

    If Google wants to find your network they will, there's often very few networks that would stand the test of a manual review. So freaking out about LRT's cool "codes" isn't really necessary.

    P.S. What tool are you using to snap up domains?

    Hosting nameservers has a special SUSP code so I'm thinking it must be something else.

    I wouldn't be overly worried if it wasn't for the fact that all of the domains that are part of this link network
    disappeared from the backlink profile in Google Webmaster Tools. This was after we got a manual penalty
    for 'Thin Content'.

    I agree that LRT is not optimal, but I would like to figure out what might be behind this problem so that I
    can plug that security hole in the network.

    We don't snap the domains ourselves, we use a service that snaps them for us.

    can confirm what linkresearchtools/linkdetox is a garbage. they hiding part of information (but i was able to find if you changing anchor types - it removes susp22 flag. susp23 is asn, susp 22 related to software version of site server/php and apache, etc). they are not providing info for susp22-24, susp31, what is just _unnaceptable_ for such expensive service. I think it because they are trying to mark all links with money keywords as suspicious, not because of some "secret sauce".

    Also, at _lot_ of cases, their algorithm reports high detox risk for absolutely normal links (from normal forum posts for example), on detox process - linkdetox return you old data (2-3 days old, anchors), etc. Their trust and power metrics is different when you checking links for domain, and when see links from that domains in detox reports. Lot of bugs...
    They also sell links indexing service with only their 660 bucks per month plan.
    Their power/trust formula is not complete, just because they don't know disavowed links on most of sites and cannot calculate approx google penalties in proper way for every link.

    based on this conclusions, their susp22-24, susp31 flags are just not truthworthy. that guys just trying to sell you "something very private with lot of unverificiable information" for very big bucks.
