    Hi,

    I might create my own PBN network soon.

    I have some questions about it :

    1) Can I host my websites on the same shared hosting but with a unique IP for each domain ?

    2) After finding the expired domain that fit what I need, do I have to restore it like it was before using webarchive ? or just creating new content will be good enough ?

    3) Is it mandatory to block all bots ? majestic, semrush, ahrefs, google, moz and others ?

    4) Is wordpress fine for all of them ?

    5) Is it ok, if I put a backlink to my money site on all articles published on my PBN ?

    6) Can I put a backlink anywhere else than inside articles (sidebar, footer ) ?

    Thank you all for your help,

    Powlow29

    1) I'd stay away from this as you're going to be sharing the same name servers.

    2) I use new content with my targeted keywords. Some people like restoring to the original content.

    3) I wouldn't block google; just the backlink crawlers

    4) I'd mix wordpress/static

    5) You can if you're okay with getting a penalty if you're ever manually reviewed. It all depends on your strategy.

    6) Of course, I definitely advise mixing up where you're linking from on each site (avoid footer links though)

    A lot of these questions come down to what your objective is. Theres different ways to build PBNs. Are you trying to look 100% legit even if you were manually reviewed? If so, mixing up each site in every possible way is required. If you're not worried about a manual review you can cut corners.

    1. Yes, but different a few different host providers are preferred.

    2. Either, but new content would be better suited to your keywords etc.

    3. No.

    4. Yes.

    5. Yes, but be smart about it.

    6. Yes, though a contextual link is preferred.

    1) Can I host my websites on the same shared hosting but with a unique IP for each domain ?
    For better results, do not use shared hosting


    2) After finding the expired domain that fit what I need, do I have to restore it like it was before using webarchive ? or just creating new content will be good enough ?
    Create new content for your PBNs


    3) Is it mandatory to block all bots ? majestic, semrush, ahrefs, google, moz and others ?
    No, It is not necessary, if you use your PBN only to get backling for your money sites(s)


    4) Is wordpress fine for all of them ?
    Yes, Wordpress will be good for all of them


    5) Is it ok, if I put a backlink to my money site on all articles published on my PBN ?
    No, You should not link all the articles with a backlink to your money site, just place link randomly and few links to other sites to make it natural


    6) Can I put a backlink anywhere else than inside articles (sidebar, footer ) ?
    No, Use only contextual links inside the content for better results, no sidebar and footer links(if you use footer links, your network can be easily identified by G)

    Thanks guys for your great reply. It will help me setting up everything.

    How many domains would you think will be better ? Is 10 enough ?

    Also is it better to have PBN relevant domains to my money site ? Or only quality of domains is required ?

    Let me know ,
    Thank you again

    1. Depends on how many you are planning to host on that one hosting. Its always a good idea to spread your domains on multiple hosting accounts to avoid footprints.

    2. Restoring expired domains is a good idea for niche specific network or if you want to build some really natural looking private blogs.

    3. No its not!

    4. Yes, but make sure you use security plugins like Wordfence to avoid spam attacks.

    5. Diversity, diversity, diversity...

    6. You can, but again. Diversity, diversity, diversity...

    Hope that helps!

    Regards,

    1. Yes, you can but try to share the websites between a few hosts in case all of them are pointed to the same money site. They might also use the same c class IP range or subnets. Overall, it is possible but is not recommended. However, different people would differ on that view. At least, try to hide the namesevers.

    2. I have tried both. The risk with restoring content is that the previous owner might report your site for stealing his content and might also report it to Google. So, you face two times the risk there.

    3. No, it is not mandatory but it is recommended in order to avoid reporting by competitors.

    4. Yes, it is fine. Most websites are WP nowadays and so, it does not matter a lot. Diversify once in a while if needed.

    5. Not recommended. If needed, you can make the site look a bit natural (sort of a mini-niche site) and contextually link to many of your money sites as well as some high authority sites. The rule of the law is to be under the radar and not to use too many outbound links. Also make sure to link out to your money site from the page which got authority (i.e. TF/CF/PA/DA/most backlinked etc.)

    6. That would not be a contextual link. So, not recommended though you can do so.
