Hey guys, I got a question about non indexed pbn domains... When doing some competitor research I found that one of my competitors has a few (and very obvious) pbn links - about 4 - which make up about 60% of their total links. As I dug deeper I also found that these links are all on the same IP address along with another 150+ domains!!! (suicide right?) However, none of these domains are indexed in google and the competitors site is ranked no.1 for a nice keyword, which leads me to my question... Does your domain have to be indexed in google to benefit from any link juice? This example would have me believe not. Or does blocking google from crawling completely hide your footprint? This pbn i found is clearly from an agency which i also found and these links have been pointing to this particular site for some time now. I just don't get how such a large (and very low standard) network of domains is still standing and ranking sites.
