Here are some tips for some noobs on how to hide some common footprints I see many people makes when creating pbn's. Some of you may disagree, but PBN's aren't dead. And if you were hit by google here are some steps you can take to move forward. I may have a very small pbn network, but all mine are still indexed. 1. Unique Whois data for every pbn. If you want to be extra safe provide a real address. There is GoogleMaps, I honestly believe a fake addresses could be a red flag to google. 2. Diversify your Whois data. Make sure not all the pbn links going to your money site have Whois privacy. This is again is a red flag and footprint. According to Lynn from NoHatDigital only 20% of websites have Whois data blocked. 3. Don't buy cheap hosts or use seohosting, I would also stay away from reseller accounts. Godaddy has a promotion where you can get cheap hosting for $12 also a free domain. I don't remember the exact coupon but do some google searching and you will find it. Host gator has decently cheap hosting as well. STAY away from those sketchy $1 per month hosts. 4. Use different domain name registrars. godaddy, name cheap, name silo, networksolutions (cringe). 5. Be EXTRA careful when it comes to external/outbound links. Make sure not of your pbn's have the EXACT same out bound links and none of them overlap. This again is a huge footprint, and I believe this is the number 1 indicator for googles algorithm flagging a pbn site. I would stick to one link from pbn to money sites. Why risk losing your pbn that you put tons of time and handwork over just because you left a stupid link footprint. 6. Obviously make the site look like a real one. Vary the link placements on your pbn (all your links can't be one the first post closest too the top) cmon son, that SCREAMS pbn. Also be cautious of over optimized anchor text. 7. Mix up post word account, 450, 750 , 1000. Differ the number of pages each website has. 8. If you are using wordpress for your pbn, add some social media plugins to your website. Twitter streams, social share buttons, facebook integration. These are some quick tips that don't take a lot of time for you to implement. Plus is makes your site look more real. 9. Unique content. Obviously. 10. Don't use Google Web Master Tools or Google Analytics. If you must use these tools, make sure you have separate accounts. Never have two sites linked together. 11. Use this information or don't and Get Rekt by google.
