    I'm struggling around the 3rd page on Google for the more competitive and important keywords and building up my PBN is becoming tiring to the point where I can see buying some links (as high quality as possible) being far more efficient. How common is it to do a bit of both? Using paid links definitely introduces new risk but what are the chances my personal PBN would be penalized if for some reason I am penalized by the paid links? I'm guessing most private pbn owners use a little bit of paid links here and there for a boost?

    I don't know anyone who was penalized because of PBN links. The most common penalty people get is not having a good anchor text rations and getting an automated penalty because of that.

    I would use the paid PBN links to build links to my Tier 1 sites such as Web 2.0s. This reduces the risk of getting penalized since the Tier 1 acts as a buffer.

    It depends on how much of a risk you're willing to take and how selective the paid PBN owner is with their content and link building.

    If you're at 3rd page for high competitive keyword then play safe, better to build links on your own network otherwise find the best PBN seller.

    The links need to look natural. If you raise flags you lose both the PBN and the target site under a manual action. If you keep the links looking natural, it'll work.

    Yes. Most people who need it both if your keywords is competitive.

    Your personal PBN and Paid Link PBN are in no co-relation. Dont worry

    Try to mix up the links from other sources too. Don't just go for all PBN links as it will be a huge red flag.
