    As per title, do you guys attempt to rank your PBNs?

    ie. if the keyword pointing to my money site is "Dog Training", do you guys attempt to rank your PBNs with onpage SEO for Keywords like "Puppy Training Chicago", "Puppy Potty Training" at least in the top 100?

    *edit - Idea is to establish relevance for your PBN, as my understanding is that if a post that is ranking on #6 for KW "Dog Training" links to your Money site for "Dog Training", you'll experience a better SERP result.

    Onsite wise? Yes. I am always optimising the articles. The higher your backlinks rank for related keywords to your money site, the more effective they are. However I do not do, nor I advise anyone to do, offsite SEO for PBNs.

    Do not look at your own PBN as a "PBN" Build it as good as a money site!! so google bots do not think it is a "PBN" that is the trick!

    Let's assume niche related is already a given, and you've caught urls which will rank their own name/title, and you've paid well enough for them they are worth investing in. If not pass, leave it for bottom feeders - you are not getting the kind of quality required from expireddomains.net to ever be long term viable.

    - Did you rip the site from archive? Don't push it that's someones property, treat it well, don't scam people, and make sure all posts or pages help a user and on site seo is decent.

    - Did you build it from scratch and invest heavily in design and content - if you aren't trying to push this type of site you are missing an opportunity if the backlink profile is a bang on match for your content and if it's not why?

    The new pbn is no longer a pbn, it's a network of quality websites.

    wouldn't you agree @MisterF ? or is this too much free information? Should i be charging someone that could of used the search since the result exists.

    As people above have said, yes. It is always a good idea to make your PBNs not look like PBNs, this means ranking for keywords, getting actual traffic, and having a social media following. If you have all of these things, it's very hard for G to determine if it's a PBN or not.

    Yes, best way to make them look real. Looks a bit odd if you have these amazing links pointing to you but no one goes on the site.
