    Hey everyone, I've been lurking for a while, then got busy with different tasks and transitioned jobs. But came back and am trying to learn/participate more.

    I'm interested in starting my own PBN - lets assume I have an unlimited budget (I don't, but for simplicity sake) and I need everything I'm wonder what the total cost to build a decent pbn is?

    Some details:


    • about 20-30 great domains
    • using DHG, also need api's for majestic and moz (is domdetailer cheaper?)
    • one money site (already built) in a very competitive niche
    • assume every footprint is hidden, different hosts, some hidden whois
    • need content writers for all the domains 4 per month each
    • anything else that I might have forgotten? I think I got most of the costs

    Let's say I want to run this for 6 months - what would the ballpark total cost be?

    Thanks!

    1.950 USD

    50 USD for GREAT domains as you said, im assuming you will try to find them, i guess GREAT domain will cost much more, but the point is, do you really need GREAT domains to rank the keyword you want for?

    some keywords can be ranked with domains from expireddomain.net wich you will be register for 99 cents,

    all depends of your competition...is the keyword hard?

    do you need to rank for hard keywords? why dont u start from easy keywords to "learn" from our mistakes and save money, but if money is not a issue here, you should go for it and buy 50, 100 USD domains and build a amazing PBN

    $2,000 is all? That seems really low to me. So what about the tools and api's and the site maintenance and content development for all of them. I would also probably have to hire some assistance huh...

    Yeah, the easier keywords aren't the target, I'm looking to make a splash up top and compete at the highest level for the best traffic and converting keywords. I would say it's on one of the toughest to rank.

    Thanks for the answer!

    its 2.000 for all , can be more a bit, but not crazy, u dont need tools when build PBN, u can buy spensive domains in godaddy action, just be sure the links are safe, it was not pbn before and other few things, also look for DA CF AND TF, check all the backlinks profile see if they were got naturaly or paid links, Good luck

    If you don't want to do ANY work more like 10x the price then. Just go buy them on the marketplace here.

    Depends on your capacity actually. If you can manage these services or hire a freelancer cheaper , Your budget will be reduced. But always consider the quality.
