    At the moment I have a PBN with around 7 blogs. Some of them have links to my money site, and have resulted in increases to my SERP. Anyway, I was wondering how much difference the number of links to my money site I place on EACH blog makes. I'm hoping I will rank better for other keywords if I can also use different anchors.

    One. Maybe two if its a larger PBN site, I wouldn't use three but some here do. Its not like two are twice as good as one anyway, if 1 links = 100% good then 2 might be something like 130%. Thats just a made up guess, but you get the point.

    Well yeah i'm interested too in what people could say. I see so many people around selling links from their PBN and I wonder how it really affects their juice.

    You should read first keyword and anchor stuffing.

    Well that is good way to increase website's SERP. You can also add inner page links in some posts.

    Generally the lower the OBL the better. For myself i'm doing between 15-20 OBL per blog right now.

    Hi mortalis,

    I'm interested in starting my own PBN and have often wondered what the link profile of a successful PBN might look like with regards promoting a single money site.
    Most tutorials/posts I've seen about PBN seem only to go as far as setting up of the hosting, choosing website themes, etc., but stop short of detailing how much content is typically posted to each PBN website, how often and what the link profile with regards the money site should look like.

    If anyone on BHW can enlighten this thread with their experience, it would be greatly appreciated! :)

    Cheers,
    Mark

    Hi Mark,

    Unfortunately all this is very new for myself so I doubt I can be much help. At the moment I have a few links to authority or semi-legit websites which are not in competition with my area. I'm only using one link to my money site per PBN blog right now.

    However some things made me think this is far from optimal. First, my money site jumped around 30 places for a keyword that was pretty much the anchor text I added, but barely moved in other SERPs. So I thought about adding another link with different anchor text to help my other keyword standings. Second, I was looking at metrics for other websites while searching for expired domains and noticed the a lot, if not most, of those with good metrics had some authority sites linking to it more than once. It got me thinking, if BBC linked to my site 10 times, that would probably provide far more link juice than just 1. Of course, my PBNs aren't anything like BBC, but I don't see why I should limit myself to just one link to my money site when it's not even that natural unless you are placing them without any proper context.

    I'll probably experiment a little bit and see what happens!

    Hi mortalis,

    Thanks for the info.
    My guess is that the size of the PBN website (i.e. number of articles) and domain authority probably have an influence on the number of times a link can be placed to the same money site.
    For example, a small site of 3 pages would look suspect if 2 of those pages linked out to the same website (66% of pages link to the same target). On the other hand, a website with 100 pages and 2 pages containing links wouldn't look bad at all (2% of pages to the same target).
    Maybe there is a % that is considered safe!?

    May I ask how many articles you have on your PBN, are you using Web 2.0's or owned domains and how often have you posted to each site?

    Mark

    Because the BBC is a huggeee mega authority site so it will certainly make a difference. The standard 10 page pbn kind of site won't make much of a difference having multiple links

    I stick with 4-5 per site. Some people go for higher, but I've found 4-5 to be perfect for me. It's enough so I don't build a separate PBN for each moneysite, and still get the nice serp bumps we all love!

    Interesting. So you have 4-5 OBLs to various money sites? I was actually talking about having multiple links from one blog to a single money site.

    Normally you add links over time until you no longer see a rise/positive effect in the serp's. Then it's time to build another PBN site to link from. Also never use the same anchor text twice. Include some content without links and a new article once a month or so if possible to keep site updated.

    Yeah. My bad on that. I do link to a few money sites. As for how many links to the same money site, i've experimented and you can post a few articles linking to the same money site, but after a while, you stop getting any value. 2-3 posts per money site I'd say, although sometimes even leaving it with 1 wouldn't hurt so you don't have a pattern across all your PBN domains.
