    Hi guys,

    Because I see this question a lot around here, (I also had it a while ago), and because a lot of members ask me this question, I decided to make this post to share my experience with everyone :D


    Question: How much it takes to see results from PBNs?

    From my experience, since the 4.0 update, I see that it takes around 20-25 days to see the first improvements in the SERPS for a big % of KWs. Of course results may vary in function of your KW, your competition, your on-page, but the first noticeable results will be seen after 20-25 days.

    Please note that I do not force index my PBNs, and I also drip feed the links. When I say 20-25 days, I started counting after the drip feeding (around 10 days) is finished. But usually they get indexed pretty fast because have good BL profile.

    I hope this helps at least one member around here who has the same question that I had some while ago ;)

    Cheers!

    It's also worth noting that rankings may change sooner if you point a few links at once time.

    From my experience if you point too many links at one time, rankings will immediately change, yes, they will go down.
    I prefeer link building for both my customers and my PBNs safety :D

    It takes some time and I even saw for not too long time ago that they can have a quick impact on your ranking within a week or two just to see your ranking go down to hell after 4 - 5 weeks!

    If you build so many PBN links at one time then it will immediately up your rankings but after 4 to 5 weeks it will be surely go down to hell in SERP.

    Edit: So drip feed is mandatory for publish your PBN posts. otherwise all the posts will index in a particular time period and it will also a footprint for your blog network.

    I know the post is about PBN, but just to understand your statement, What happen if you get 20 natural blog posts within 7 days? Believe me, that can really happen. Are you safe with Google or Google might think that your links come from a PBN?

    If you think it's safe to get 20 blog links within one week, so why it could be a problem with PBN? And so are you sure that the main key of PBN success is the linking to money site delay?

    Yeah it is safe only, we can just split-up the counts for that 7 days like 3 posts per day :)

    A lot of low quality Backlinks with same anchor in a short period of time will decrease your rankings. (A lot of blog posts for example.)

    A lot of contextual backlinks from a lot of real blogs won't hurt you as the anchor is different, and also OBL is lower, quality is higher, etc...

    The thing that makes the difference between PBNs and real links from Blogs is the anchor % , and also, if you have a big PBN network and you drip feed links, chances of raising any suspicions stay low, so you decrease the risk of getting caught by big G.

    All the natural BLs don't have to worry about raising suspicions, because... they are real.

    As I said it depends somehow also on the niche/KWs/competition, I have also seen big increases in SERPS 4-5 days after indexation (after 4.0 update). But it's not what happens to the big % of KWs.

    Also, I say NOTICEABLE increase, this imo means something like #40-->#25 and stay there.

  13. I am gonna try PBN links first time for my few new sites. Let's see I hope they give the effect in 20 to 25 days, but the faster the better I'd say :D

    Algo? Let's play with you.
    No, it's not like that from my experience.
    I usually get some good boost few days after the post indexing (Not publishing, indexing) and then steady with a bit of dance for 10-15 days, then another boost.

    Agreed with @jamesjk1 Be patient and don't Bomb your PBN at once. Try to schedule your post timing and dates and then wait for indexing. If you Go Hard and Fast you may get a High Penalty, if you go too slow you may get a long time to get the effects of PBN. So Go for a mixture.

    Thanks for the info!

    Since the delay between drip feeding links and seeing a SERP rise is so long, how do you make sure you do not add too many links (I.e. Waste domains and hosting costs that were not needed if previous added links would already lead to the desired result).

    I checked your profile, and what you are doing is trying to increase your post count. ANd this is not allowed.
