So I came across a pretty reputable guy that basically sells membership to his PBN. You can make 5 guest posts for about $200 bucks. Apparently all the blogs in the network have pretty decent PR and age. A guy also used the network to move from page 5 of google to the first page (about the 3rd or 4th result) I can attest to that because I actually google searched his keyword. Anyway. Do you guys think it's worth it to spend so much money (its alot for me, i'm in college), or should I just go about trying to score guest posts the hard "white hat way". Although that method seems more grey hat than black to me... Or maybe I could try to create my own blog network? Has anyone here had any success with paid PBN's, or did you find it easier to build your own PBN? What's the best route for a beginner?
