    So I have been struggling a lot with IM and I have a full time job, now I am looking to finally settle in for something so I can just focus on it when I get time such as websites.

    My plan initially was,
    Build a PBN use it to rank niche clickbank sites..

    Now I am thinking,
    Start a authority site, outsource article writing and then see what happens. What do you guys suggest? Really confused here.

    For Rich Man: Can invest on any thing to test/start new business. He should not be expert, coz he has enough money to invest.

    For average/ poor guy: He should not invest on anything if he is not an expert. Coz there is nothing to do when money is a problem... And its a BIG Problem

    Hope you understand what i wanna say.

    Not sure what you are trying to accomplish with 150usd. You can build an authority site for free. Get a domain + host and a template for free in the downloads section. Do keyword research with keywordrevealer.com(free) and market samurai (free trial). Write 20 to 30 articles and start from there. You can build a pbn but the only way to do it with your budget is if you know how to find good expired domains yourself. Look for a thread here by nickflame, it explains how you can build a pbn for cheap.

    You should build a PBN after you've got yourself profiting from an authority site. Or five. Then you can use the PBN to build quality back link profiles easier.

    Shouldn't you ask yourself:"How should I create an authority site with $150?"

    With that low of a budget you will have to learn to do SEO yourself or look for services on the forum, there was someone offering a monthly subscription for $30, you will have to create your links yourself they only give you access to their network. Another way to get quality links would be to scan your competitors back link profiles and see if they have any legit links and then head over to those websites and try to get links from guest posts ( easier said than done, it's very hard to do and takes a lot of time ). Try finding easy low competition keywords and you will decrease your SEO costs significantly.

    In my honest opinion, $150/mth is not going to be enough to build a solid PBN.

    I'd recon you spend the time build a authority site that beats the rest of the competition in the market. It doesn't really cost much other than your time and some creativity. Once you have proven sales, you can then scale it up with PBNs and rank for keywords that will bring in more sales.

    Pouring money into SEO is not something you should do if you do not have sales.

    Cheers

    Well he could register 15 expired domains with that money IF he has the knowledge of PBNs and how they work.
    After that you'd need 15 hosting accounts which will also will cost you xx$/month to keep your PBN up.

    You can do both at the same time. Create an authority site and build a couple of PB's each month.

    Forget about pbn for now. I suggest you balance seo with content. Get your first 10 pages up, then purchase some natural links, like top 30 manual bookmarks, social profiles, and social signals. This is very cheap. Now purchase 1 expired domain on godaddy or from where ever and do an exact anchor text link. Wait a month to do other link building....but continue to add content. Finally, purchase high quality press release distribution with brand anchor text and 20-30 quality web 2.0 with different root domains with Lsi anchors. Hit these with quality tier 2 links, everything should easily cost you less than 300 in two months plus time spent. Good Lucki

    Building an authority site would be a better option in comparison to a PBN.
