    Hi black hat folks

    I want to use PBN as Tier 2 links. Two reasons:


    • more power for the Tier 1 links
    • reputation management because I want to push a forum post downwards which ranks for my brand

    Of course this is quite expensive.

    Therefore my question: Can I use one PBN site to link to more than one Tier 1 sites / articles or is this a big footprint?

    You can use a PBN blog to link more then 1 money site. But don't create any obvious pattern.
    Also links to some other sites in the niche. Try to make your linking patter as random as possible.

    And for reputation management, don't just create PBN blogs. Create some parasite pages on strong web 2.0 and rank them for your brand name.

    Yes that's a footprint. You might wanna mix your tier 2 links with other links so that your tier 1 will look more natural.

    Definitely a footprint. Google is looking at Tier 2 links thoroughly. What you can do is to use high PA 2.0's (like tumblr, weebly, etc.). It's way cheaper. Just boost their PA's or buy high PA tumblrs etc.

    any case study / article / more info on that? Would interest me a lot. The number and complexity of Tier 2,3,4... links increase exponentially. Lets say each tier1 one links has 10 tier2 links, each of these 10 tier3 etc. Then it is 10^x links to analyze and compare

    As others have already said, avoid this as its a footprint and use high PA web 2.0's like Tumblr's to boost your T1 links. The Tumblr's can also handle more T3 links from GSA or what ever in case they didn't give you the push you needed.

    Said many times by Jimmy Kelley in his Domain Authority Stacking course. Also stated by Greg Morrison.

    You can use them but without a pattern. Basically don't use the same PBN domains to link to multiple Tier 1s and repeat it like a noob, u will be caught in the act :D

    I second that. After all it's logic : what is a tier 2 ? an internet property. And Google doesn't know it's a Tier 2 site. Google treats it like a normal site or link so it will look for patterns. So the basic rule for Tier 1 PBN (which is: don't create patterns) applies to Tier 2 PBNs. But as you said, the more you go down the tiers, the less footprints you're going to leave.

    When it comes to linking out, the more money sites you have, the more possible combinations of linking patterns can be used to link to them. You can calculate the number of combinations using this tool. Some math always help :)

    It based your content quality and niche.
    If you are using a single PBN for many Tier1 sites means your site metrics(DA,PA,etc.,)should be high otherwise it was looking unnatural.
    This may lead your site to get banned or deindexed.

    Yes you can use PBN as Tier 2 to more power for tier1 link.
    For reputation management better use high PA web 2.0 which is cheap and best to rank your brand name or site.
