    Hola BHW community!

    As I have been participating and contributing to the community before (#Newbie Apprentice Guide), I felt obligated to share my ideas again. Besides on-going and upcoming BST thread, I really do enjoy helping around at forum and contributing for that matter.

    In this simple guide, given that you have basic WordPress/PBN knowledge, I will give few easy steps to build bullet-proof PBN. This is something I like to call 'Atomic PBN'. It contains little twists to low-key PBN's we see on the market.

    Few Easy Steps For Good PBN:
    ---------------------------------------------------

    1. First thing first is that you need a good domain name and hosting. This can easily be acquired with little investment. There are couple of reputable sellers on BHW MARKETPLACE. Domains can easily be acquired on forum too. Be careful about domains. No spammy or low DA PA domains. Pick the good domain and you will save yourself whole loads of trouble. You can easily pick good hosting provider at BHW HOSTING MARKETPLACE. Be sure to pick something with SSD structure, reliable and possibly with discount.
    ---------------------------------------------------
    2. Setting up domains and hosting should be basic. Simply install CloudFlare and set proper DNS settings. Be sure to install proper SSL if provided by hosting. If not just navigate to Let's Encrypt or some other provider for free SSL.
    *If you are building a large scale network, be sure to mix different IP ranges. Skip CloudFlare on couple of domains to mix things up or use various CDN's.
    ---------------------------------------------------
    3. After proper i installation of WordPress, I straight head onto web.archive and analyze sites previous images. This is crucial factor and give that proper time.
    ---------------------------------------------------
    4. After previous step, I go head on and install niche related theme. Head into settings and alter site logo, title, basic look and setup nice landing page. Pick themes with proper sliders and engaging content on homepage. Give this some time too, you want your PBN to look natural and authentic.
    *You can use NC Logo Maker for fast logo-production.
    ---------------------------------------------------
    5. Next step is to navigate to Setting/Premalinks and setup post-name or similar link structure. Posting in WP 'Post' or 'Page' section is by my opinion the same after this. Given the theme settings add 5-10 resurrected, or well-spun articles. Don't be LAZY: open couple of browser tabs and add related youtube video, at least 1 high-authority link, related featured image with alt-text and category set.
    ---------------------------------------------------
    6. After I add couple of articles the site build itself up. Now it is good advice to head into Customize page and remove post/page title, author and date. This can easily be done with css magic:D:
    ---------------------------------------------------
    .css-class-name {
    display: none;
    }

    ---------------------------------------------------

    Where you can alter css-class-name with appropriate css class. Try with entry-content / post-date or just use browser DEV tools and inspect element on-page. Here is Chrome Dev Tools Guide.
    ---------------------------------------------------
    7. After this my site really do put together. I usually get very nice authentic looking blog ready to launch. You might want to install Wordfence, SSL force plugin, caching plugin etc. Be sure to install add Privacy Policy, Contact Us and Disclaimer page. Use Google, there are number of free generators.
    ---------------------------------------------------
    I do have a few little twists to create even better index-ready PBN but it's solely on experimenting base.
    You can mix the things up with 1 social network for example. You can install IFTTT on couple of PBN's in your network to spice social signals. What I also do is open all the posts in different tabs and do little net of interlinking. Don't be lazy, read paragraph of article and add sentence or two that will naturally link toward some other post or site page. There are couple of more methods to do this, but I found this way to be as well as index-ready as it could be. Never failed me so far. :D Enjoy!
    ---------------------------------------------------
    I do hope some of you will find this little PBN GUIDE that works for me in year of 2020 useful. Give your feedback. :)

    Thank you for your feedback.

    That is quite correct.
    Always be sure to buy from reputable seller. Check spam score, domain history, request samples from sellers, DA/PA and every other metric you can get your hand on.
    GOOD DOMAIN IS 50% OF WORK MY FRIENDS.

    I found few good sellers here at BHW but I don't want to promote in any way.
    This guide is purely contribution to BHW.


    Since you all seems interested in my PBN guide, I will follow up with couple of more advice's to fill the whole story:
    ---------------------------------------------------

    1. If you are chasing that legit-looking blog it has never been easier than with today's free WordPress themes. You literally don't need premium or nulled themes and fancy plugins. Be aware that after you pick your theme, you navigate to Customize section. Every good looking theme has either slider or some sort of service/featured/news sections. If you developed few site's you noticed that these section require post or page to exist in order to set it into the theme. No matter the type, you set Permalinks to "postname" and URL structure of PBN is the same. Either page or post. Add authentic and related featured image and wholaaa you got yourself good looking blog.
    *Be sure to fill everything up with Youtube video, 1-2 high authority links and at least 1 interpage link. You do wan't your site to be ONPAGE-SEO-FRIENDLY!
    ---------------------------------------------------

    2. No matter existing links your domain has, I ALWAYS make at least 1 social media profile for every PBN. Go with Pinterest, Reddit, FB, IG, Snapchat, Tumblr, Twitter...whatever...Don't be lazy and post few social signal links toward your site. This way, in my practical experience, which is now truly enormous (manual HQ work), you get index-ready PBN in 48-72h.
    ---------------------------------------------------
    3. Have sitemap.xml ready!
    ---------------------------------------------------
    4. Again, don't be lazy and schedule 10+ posts for next 3 months or so. This way blog will appear quite authentic for G.

    any advice on using homepage links? i.e. only using one link per domain - not using blog posts for links?

    @milk_and_cake - thanks for sharing your lesson learned. interested to get your take on update frequency. once your have added a link to your money site, how often do you go back and update your pbn? have you found an update correlation between making updates and pbn's providing more positive result on serp?

    Thank you for the post.

    How important is the niche? And what are the minimum metrics you recommend to have atleast?

    My money site is a product review website, so is it viable method that I buy expired domain and make it look like a legit blog and then link to my moneysite from the articles?

    Here's one question: I know it's better to look for domains that have good DA/PA, but let's discuss this metric. What's the MINIMUM DA you should be looking for when purchasing a domain for PBN purpose? Or what's the minimum DA you should be looking for in any type of situation?

    Homepage links are considered to be of great value. You don't need to limit yourself to 1 link per domain as long as you have multiple articles and content in general on PBN. Be sure to mix things up with other high authority links of sort.
    This might also help you out: https://www.blackhatworld.com/search/104102462/?q=obl&o=relevance

    Very nice question idd. I have a simple answer: I treat my PBN's same way as any legit blog. So frequent update is something I highly advise you do.

    Of course they do. :)

    When it comes to metrics it's your choice. The higher DA/PA & TF domain has the better. Of course the higher these scores are, the domain value will go higher.
    For second part of question, you answered yourself. Get good expired domain, make it look like a legit blog, do on-site SEO on it too and in couple of months so you send few links towards your moneysite.

    I really didn't explored some other CMS platforms like Joomla, OpenCart etc. However, I did worked on couple of project where buyers wanted plain HTML based PBN.
    This is really good and it has great result but they really are harder to make. Everything needs to be done manually. Cheers.

    This is interesting question idd. The higher the metrics, the better. I would always go for domains with DA20+. Of course, there are number of situations where you need a better domain.

    I couldn't agree more.

    NEW INPUT ON SOME PBN TRICKS:
    ---------------------------------------------------
    1. Commonly missed and not done by quite few PBN builders is sitemap.xml file.
    Don't be lazy and miss on that one. No matter how many interlinks your site in general, Google bots often navigate to sitemap.xml file and read on all the links thus indexing site faster.
    This is also crucial if you are adding additional content later on. Keep sitemap updated with some of the plugins.
    ---------------------------------------------------
    2. The WP schedule option is your friend. No matter how big PBN network you are working on, you want that juicy content to be added several times a month.
    What I personally do is pick a day when I'm feeling extra hare for work and add bunch on articles on draft/schedule. Be sure never to miss a month without adding at least some content on site. Keep things interesting.
    ---------------------------------------------------
    3. Meta description is often overlooked when building a good PBN. This shouldn't be the case like never! If you are not feeling extra inspirational for adding good and optimized meta description, at least add simple version 5-6 words. Just don't leave it blank. With plenty of testing I noticed that this is definitely the better scenario.
    ---------------------------------------------------
    4. Fancy alt text is what make G accept your site for good. I never miss adding a lot of images in form of galleries or featured images myself. But be sure, every freaking image has rich optimized alt test. If you are adding a Youtube video into the article, be sure to also write short description and/or title of the video as header. This is few seconds of work but it will help your site a lot!
    ---------------------------------------------------

    This is it for now.
    I hope you all have lovely days ahead of you and wish you best of luck with your PBN building.
