    Hi there,

    I'd need to set-up a PBN for a customer, but I wonder what is the best way :

    - selling it to customer and use it only for him
    - buying it from and for my agency and use the PBN for others customers

    Thanks in advance for your replies.

    up to you really, you can do both, if the PBN looks legit its fine to use it for multiple targets, personally I would build my own general pbn and use it for multiples.

    If you want to get the maximum benefit from the PBNs, I would suggest you to use it only for your client. This will give you powerful link juice.

    I think you can do both but make sure to monitor and maintain them to avoid issues on your customers.

    Are both of your clients from the same niche? It is important to keep the network niche related. Also, make sure you add a lot of articles without links, to make the sites look legit and not spammy.

    Its completely up to you. We have had experience with both the way.. We have our own PBN and we are using it for ourselves as well as our clients. No issues with that, if we are doing it right.

    Both options are possible. One important thing to keep in mind when using it for multiple customers is to take a close look at diversity and randomness in order to make sure your clients stay safe. Try to eliminate as much footprints as possible :)

    If you are using for multiple site the juice will get down , if you targetting it for 1 site the results will be better

    Depends what your customer wants and how much they can spend.

    Well, there is nothing bad to use it for multiple clients if you make it look legit. I'm suggesting you to add content without links in order to make it more natural. If every post include links, this can lead to issues.

    I would say yes and no.

    You're should have multiple external links to other authority sites in your posts anyway, so why not pepper in other clients? The issue there is that those clients might not have information that is valuable enough to link to. If you start linking to too many low authority domains, you might start to look like a linkfarm/PBN and create unneeded negative attention.

    Absolutely agree, make the PBN look like a real high quality site and you should be able to use them for many sites.

    Just be careful - if you are linking to the same group of sites on every domain in your pbn then it's a potential footprint.

    I would build a PBN of 50 blogs or more if needed and then use it for multiple clients. If your clients don't know much about SEO then you just send the link report to the client. They won't out. Also, if you block link trackers such as Moz, Majestic, Ahrefs, etc ... then even their competitors won't find out about the PBN that easily.

    Or if your clients are in luxury niches where they make a lot of money from search traffic then build 1 PBN for each client. Ultimately, it depends on your clientele and how big they want to dominate.

    doesnt every site on the internet that links to you, link to you? I cant see a footprint in the linking its other data that give it away like the ratio of other types of links or other on site factors which give footprints
    In any case there are 100's of ways you can build sites out for a pbn and not 1 has to be in any way similar in type to the other
    this is all personal choice and risk

    what if you have all your clients on the same reseller hosting plan? Having your PBN linking to a group of sites all on the same IP is a big no no surely?

    I would opt for the option to use it for me and my clients. It would be like a rental to customers.
