    One of my sites got hit by Google yesterday, it lives well for more than a year, I build some PBN links for it (only used by myself), all A class ip, whois privacy, I don't know how did google found it ,
    I think next time I should delete these PBN links when the sites got some stable positions?

    It could be over optimization or an algorithmic penalty (which includes content related penalties, not just links). Google probably didn't "find" your pbn unless you received a manual penalty.

    I'm 100% sure it's a manual penalty, contents are good, and all the pages got hit

    - Did you use different plugin, theme type, paid/free theme?
    - Did you link between your PBN sites?
    - Did you use natural anchor text?
    .....

    Did you check with other SEOers?

    How are you 100% sure its manual and not algorithmic? Unless you received a message in GWT?

    Somewhere in there you created a footprint, it's pretty much up to you to search through and figure out what you did that would let Google connect all your PBN sites to your money page.

    Although that is assuming Google actually deindexed you for the PBN and not for some other reason. Like did you buy any other types of links for your money site?

    To test out, buy a $1 domain and use all your suspected PBNs link to this domain, wait, see if got the same result.

    it could be that the problem. how many pbn links did you have pointed at your money site? that could be the problem if you had only your pbn links pointing to your money site and you should had built more high authority links to diversify from web 2.0s,profile links,press releases,ETC.

    The reviewer most likely found your pbn and could tell its a pbn by the way the sites looked.

    Hi, guys you are right, it's not the problem about PBN, I got a manual penalty "[h=3]Thin content with little or no added value"[/h]Hi, anyone have experience on this problem? Should I add some posts then request a review?

    Somehow PBN still works if you can handle them well. google launched a system to catch PBN links and then immediately penalty them. Google only can find your PBN links from footprint your hosting always has a footprint and if you host there more then one or two domain that will not helpful for you and you will get again penalized. So host only one or two website in a single hosting try to avoid SEO hosting. maintain your blog very well. Install a good theme, add home, about and contact page it's necessary and the most important thinks post always super quality links, do hyperlink only one keywords not more then that and try to use some good images.
    Hope it will help you. cheers!

    Sounds like a diversification problem. If you have only 1 type of link, that's easy to spot. Now when a competitor discovers your site and notices the obvious, you were most likely reported. In these cases, getting 'told on' is the most likely cause. Did you piss off anyone? Got really visible in a short period of time?
