    Hello Everyone!

    As the title says, how do you check the power of a backlink in your PBN?
    I am a newbie in finding PBN and stumbled a couple of domains having a backlink(PR5 - page of a referring domain where the main domain is PR7) using majestic..

    Is it right checking PR of a backlink as a sign of it's power?
    I am using XENU with a depth of 3..

    Thanks!

    Dude, it's been said so many times: PR is outdated and not a reliable metric anymore.

    Xenu depth lvl 3....thats cute....probably the domains u found are sp ammed or have fake pr. Check archive history and link profile before u buy a domain for ur pbn. The link profile is the key here.

    It's better to use more than just one parameter to evaluate it, You could do PR + DA or PR + TF along with the backlink profile, anchor texts, TLD distribution(avoid those with chinese and Russian backlinks).

    You must consider all this metrics before buying PB's
    1. Domain Age > 1 year
    2. Domain DA & PA > 20
    3. Domain name = Niche relevant Name
    4. PR > 1 (no fake)
    5. Back links > 100 (no spammy links)
    6. TF & CF > 10

    Yeah I know but even if the PR is outdated it doesn't mean it won't help checking a power of a backlink. But I guess you are right, maybe I'll stick on an authority backlink. Thanks!

    Yep it's cute.. I already checked it's backlink, anchors and archive.org. No any pharma hot mama shits..

    Thanks! Noted that..

    If it has a trust flow of over 20, it's probably a real PR 5 page or at least a PR 3.

    Thanks but.
    1. Agree
    2. Can be fake.
    3. Relevant better but very hard to find, but I asked on some authority PBN sellers here that a good PBN domain (even not on your niche) may help you rank if you do it right.
    4. Can be fake.
    5. Agree but even if you have only 10+ quality backlinks better than 100+ ok backlinks IMO.
    6. Can be fake.

    Use open site explorer and majestic to check how backlinks perform against their metrics.
