    Say you want to build a 20 site PBN, you want each site to have at least 3 blog posts, plus the About Us, Privacy, Contact Us pages etc.

    This all adds up to plenty of content.

    If you're a seasoned PBN builder then you'll already have your methods for obtaining your content. If you're happy to share then please do.

    The methods I've used are below and have a wide range of content quality. I don't believe the content on a PBN needs to have a standard as high as a money site, but it should still be readable in my eyes.

    I've listed these methods in no particular order.

    -- UpWork --

    Personally I've only needed to use writers from these sources for my money sites. Though I know plenty of marketers will get cheap articles written from these sources. The only problem I see is there is a massive gap between the good and bad quality. Also if you want to scale your content, then you're potentially working with many writers at once.

    -- HireWriters / iWriter --

    I've used HireWriters a great deal for my PBN's. Once you get a solid template, with clear and structured guidelines, you can create many new jobs in a short amount of time. Generally you'll get a quick turn around on these articles. The good thing with HireWriters, if you aren't happy with the article you don't need to pay for it. Just fire the writer and your article goes back into the queue and a new writer will pick it up.

    Grey Hat Pro Tip - HireWriters gives you a 25% bonus on your first initial deposit. So if you deposit $200 you'll get $250 to spend. This reduces your per article cost. Once your account balance runs out, open a new account and you'll get the 25% bonus on your initial deposit.

    -- Spun Content --

    This is not something I've really spent time on, but I know plenty of guys are doing it. As content freshness can be an important factor for your PBN's adding new content on a constant basis is something you might want to look at. So you might use decent content for the initial site setup and for your money site linking articles. But then use spun content to fill out your PBN site and keep the freshness constant.

    -- Restore Old WayBack Content --

    This is something that I'm experimenting with at the moment. Essentially you're taking the old site from Archive.org, downloading the HTML and uploading it again to your new hosting account. Or you could be copying the old content and pasting it into your new WordPress site. Some close sources are doing this with great results so I'm experimenting with it myself and will provide a further update.

    Obviously you want to make sure the old content is not still indexed and passes CopyScape. Restoring the old HTML sites can be painful at times as every site back in the day was built with different standards and technology.

    You can use any of these tools for restoring old WayBack sites.

    https://domains.pbnhq.com/tools/wayback Cost FREE

    https://github.com/hartator/wayback-machine-downloader Cost = FREE

    https://www.waybackdownloads.com/ cost $7-$11 per site


    That is all I can really think of. If you have any extra methods please share them with the group.

    Yeah that wayback machine is sweet, I need to try that. I think theme is one of the most important things too(besides not having horrible spin content).

    I was just looking at the top 3 sites for one of my keywords, and I found their PBN within the first minute of checking backlinks. Everything was spun, the website looked horrible, every post was on the front page. Common sense and a little bit of extra effort goes a long way.

    Don't use spun content on the About, Contact page... you could spend 20 more minutes and make a real About and Contact page that will look 100 times better than the average spun.

    Yeah spun content usually isn't a bad thing to have on a PBN in terms of pentalties as its more related to the Panda algo.

    I have thought of using HQ spun content but always thought that indexing it would be a issue.. is that true?

    Indexing is not an issue at all. I use barely readable content and it still gets indexed.

    Well I was planing to build serp sites...you know like lead gadget and serp shaker do - with US keyword list targeting cities and states...each website would have like 200k pages...then you hope they get indexed and rank...oh and on top an overlay promoting your actual offer. I mean the method works, the ppl in those groups are banking good from it...but I got distracted with other things and didn't start building them yet

    Thanks for the share! I've asked this question a numerious amount of times and I always get a different answer each time. Can you use your PBN for multiple Money sites assuming hosting is diversified? I've been using 1 PBN per 1 Money site but it costs so damn much lol. Also, to block or not to block crawlers?

    The overall question relates to footprints for both linking to money sites and blocking or not blocking SEO bots. As long as you don't create a consistent pattern in relation to linking, hosting, blocking bots, content etc, etc. then you're creating a more realistic representation of the real world on the web.

    Yes you can link your one PBN site to multiple money sites, but don't have a 10 or 20 sites PBN that only links out to these same two sites. Mix it up.

    Blocking SEO bots more relates to hiding your PBN from competitors, so generally we do it, but we mix up the methods e.g. different plugins or use htaccess etc.

    Instead of an overlay (which can fuck you when people have adblockers) you should be looking into a cloaker like wpcloak (BST found on this forum), i can tell you first hand that you can bank real hard on them, i still have sites in the index from the days that SERP Shaker was called Local Page Ninja and registerfly was the place to go to get your .info domains for a $1-

    [ontopic]
    I have two kinds of PBN's one that i use for juice and i really don't care how they look like and i use spun content and the one that i build like real sites that get actually real traffic and in which i use real content
