    I have been using a PBN to build links for a client. The client has now stopped paying his bills and therefore I stop building links. I have created a lot of links to his website from a PBN. I want to reuse the content for new clients. I'm going to change the anchor text and only use the content for clients within the same profession. Is it bad practise to I simply just change the anchor text and change the link to another domain? I hope that you some of you have expirence with reusing content in PBN.

    As mentioned he stopped paying his bills. I charge every third month so the links i have been building the last two months has been free of charge sort to speak.

    The beauty of a PBN is you're in complete control and you can control the links. That's one of the main reasons SEOs build PBNs. No harm in changing the links as you outlined (similar niche, etc).

    The morality of changing it - that's ultimately for you to decide. There are a lot of circumstances to consider. The one thing you may want to think of changing in the future is start charging clients on a monthly basis. It's simple enough to automatically rebill the client monthly.

    Good luck.

    Not a good idea to change the links. Insert links in a new content is better option mate.

    What Greymist said. Changing links in the existing content to a different site is a brutal red flag imo. And regarding the morale of the things... if the client pays for 3 months, then he gets 3 months of services, no? I would keep the links where they are. Be a bigger man.
