    Hello everybody. I am thinking of building up PR of my website. Now I am confused about whether to start a PBN or buy backlinking services. Any help here please? Also if you could point the advantages and disadvantages of both?
    One more question. Which route would be cheaper?
    Thanks.

    I don't care about the PR. I focus about ranking top at Google for targeted keywords.

    If you have tight budget, you consider link building service. Pyramid model is recommended.

    Besides the link building service, if you have more budget, you can use the PBN.

    The PR of your website does not really tell you anything useful. Building up a PBN is very costly and there are a lot of things to look at when doing so. If you don't have a bigger budget you should go with buying links.

    I prefer Both mate..

    PBN : Low quantity of back links, High Cost but worth

    Link Building : High quality of Links, Low cost, also worth but not sure :p

    I build my own PBN so I have more control of my SEO. The only services I buy are: guest posts from real sites, press releases, ezinearticle submissions, social media sharing from real accounts, social bookmarks

    If the blogs or sites in your own PBN are new, you won't have the same good results as someone who's PBN sites have been up for years now. For that reason, you might be better off link building from scratch. Just start with comments on high page rank blogs, linking directly to your money site. Then backlink to the page where you commented. Backlink to those links. It's not the best solution but it's cheap if you do the work yourself.

    I prefer buying from link services over PBNs. I know that link services often sell links from PBNs, but, at least I am using several different PBNs :)

    Link services is obviously the easier way, but also more expensive in the long run. PBNs take much more upfront time and money, but very minimal recurring cost and you are in control of the links. However, they MUST be said up correctly to make sure you don't penalize your money site. PM me if you want help with either option.

    PBN sites are YOUR sites. This is your asset forever. You are in full control of them. so unless you spam them to death or post viagra links or whatever, they will bring you a revenue forever.

    Unlike bought links.

    PBN is good but when you want rank medium/high competitive niche you can't have only 15/20 backlinks from your PBN and in this case you need to buy links from external PBNs.
    Have a PBN with 50/100 blogs is expensive and you need to update them often.

    I take it that it is the site set as your homepage?
    I would do neither at the moment, you will be better off adding some quality content.
    You only have 1 post in the "How To" category and 8 posts in the "Lessons" category.

    If you're targeting french site then get links from the french content PBN.. It will be more good and quality.. There is no prob for getting links from the English content PBN.. Link diversity is always good and nothing negative here.. Anyways the links will boost up the SERP position.. Hope you got my point..

    Ok, some says that the content has to be contextual. is this a myth ?
    say, if i build mini pbn, start with a industrial related domain. and moneysite is about wedding. is this works ? how should we do this ?
    Thanks!

    PBN is the way to go here. Building link from scratch will a.) cost you more and b.) you will need more time for it.

    Backlinks should always be niche related

    Yeah but usually pbn domain will not able to match keyword you targeted. does the domain name need to be contextual also ? or just the content ?
