    If you use it at every single site on your PBN, it's a footprint.

    You are right about .htaccess file. It's not a footprint if nobody can read it.
    You shouldn't put those rules on robots.txt though, because it's readable by everyone so it's a footprint.

    Hi,

    I work for google.

    Currently we are crawling the internet using ahrefsbot user agent string.

    When we find them blocked by your site we investigate further

    Really??? My god, so big G is anywhere?!

    Google use ahrefsbot, why? Just for SEOer? You are so big that can use your own bots.

    Lol, right... blocking huge lists of SEO tool related bots is a GIANT red flag. The only reason you would EVER do this is to keep competition from reporting your sites. People need to STOP blocking bots and START making sites that don't look like PBNs.

    I see so many sites ranking with PBN-s that are so fucking crap that you wonder if the site owner actually spent 5-10 min per site. All blogs on WP, 1-page sites, spun content, exact anchor text on each one, no other outbound links, some sites have the SAME public whois information, etc... basically footprints all over the place! The sites have been ranking for months now in $500-1k/day niches. This kinda defeats the purpose of making "real looking legit" PBN-s that takes HOURS of work and 10x more investment.

    Months aren't years, spending 10x more and making your money site stick on top 10x longer certainly isn't a bad idea.

    And if you fuck up on the way even by 1 small detail, your whole investment goes to the toilet. Don't get me wrong, I build and use PBN-s the right way for my long-term sites, but every time I see these kind of sites in the SERP-s makes me think about going churn and burn on PBN-s as well lol...

    Sounds like those PBNs didn't block bots either since you found them. Seems like an either/or then. If you aren't blocking bots you better make it able to pass a manual review. And if you're spamming 2 cent PBNs you'll eventually get caught anyway so may as well create a footprint blocking bots. Then again, that guarantees you'll get found.

    I've found a competitiors PBN in the gambling sector, he's ranking for a very competitive term and his PBNs are setup up terrible, the footer is almost the same on every site and he uses the same statcounter.com code on every domain. I was able to search for the code and revealed 80 or so of his sites.

    You may as well take your time doing it properly, it doesn't take much longer to do. That's if you want long term results ofcourse.....
