Niche of PBN & Moneysite don't need to match - Or do they?

    So I've seen plenty of people on BHW advise that it's not important that the niche of the PBN and the moneysite it links out to are the same. The process usually suggested is to tailor an article on the PBN to tangentally match with the theme of the moneysite (a good example from another thread on here was creating an article on a car themed PBN to be about best car paint linking out to a moneysite about paint).

    But surely this isn't always possible? For instance, I recently found an expired domain which appears to have great metrics and backlinks but was basically a website about dinosaurs previously with backlinks from dinosaur articles on other sites - even the URL is unmistakably dinosaur themed. How could I link out from a PBN like this to lets say a lawyer/dentist etc moneysite without it looking totally out of place?

    Sorry if I'm missing something stupid here, it's just I've read several threads where people say it really doesn't matter if the PBN and moneysite are niche related so I feel like I need to get a bit more clarity on the subject.

    You can use either a niche related domain or even a non niche related domains. In your example a dinosaur themed website could conceivably link to a lawyer/dentist website. Problem is that niche related domains with high stats are often hard to find.

    It's true that it doesn't matter. I've been building dozens of PBN and none of them even niche related. All I care about is the link profile is clean, strong (have authority links) and decent RD. And they're powerful enough to rank my moneysites.

    You can associate ideas about any two topics quite naturally. As ideas, try comparing dinosaurs to lawyers (it is often said that lawyers are often stuck in pre-history when it comes to operating their businesses), or talk about dinosaurs' teeth to link to the client site.

    If you can also influence the content on the client site, i.e. if you can write articles that also tie the themes together, you can link the sites more naturally.

    But it going to be difficult to get the anchor text "cheapest dentist in Florida" with a link to a home page from a site about dinosaurs. If that is really what you want, then either you take the risk or you link the PBN via a buffer site that allows for conversion to the money site's content.

    It probably does give you an advantage if the subject of the PBN is on the same topic. But there are ways around if it doesn't.

    It stronger to have a domain that not nothink related to the main niche.

    Of course with in the domain and your Wordpress you need the same nice

    If the domain is niche related then it will be more powerful - mainly if its got authority links in your niche pointing to it, then its going to carry link power and symatic power as well. But as said above, fiding a great domain that is also niche targeted is very difficult. If you just get a decent domain with strong backlinks and no spam etc then that is good enough, without it being related to niche.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. Yeah, so it seems that in an ideal world the PBN and moneysite are niche related but not always possible. I guess I'm overthinking it a little anyway, it's just I'd like to make my PBNs look as natural as possible but there's definitely some good tips here. Cheers

    To completely theme a new domain to your desired niche just post fresh articles related to your niche and theme the domain to that niche. Content around a link should be related as far as possible and your backlink to your money site should be powerful.

    niche relevant backlinks are stronger but you can skip it and use the domains fo other projects too (if low on cash).

    I don't think that is HAS to match, but I do think it is BETTER when it is relevant.

    IMO you can use PBN to link to your money site in different niches. It's the content that has to be relevant to your money site.
