    If the site is indexed for a pbn, does its SERP ranking really matter for ranking a money site?

    Yes, the better it ranks, the stronger it is.

    The SERP ranking of a PBN domain does matter to some degree but it doesn't matter. It depends how you look at it.

    If you get a link from google.com but you are trying to rank "buy dildos" you will still get a lot of link juice from that link even tho google.com does not rank for your target keyword.

    But then again if your PBN domains DO rank for your target keyword it's even better.

    All in all, dont worry about it. Just make sure the domain is indexed and has great links pointing to it.

    It is good to have.
    No issues even if PBN ranks for your keyword :)

    Seeing PBN domains ranking for the keywords is probably the best thing you can see. If it doesn't happen though, don't worry about it too much, it's not a necessity. It all comes down to how strong your PBN site is.

    Your site does not need to rank for anything to pass link juice.

    I wouldnt target my main kw on the PBN article because that way your PBN can be easily discovered / reported .
    I would instead link from those sites with articles targeting the niche but not the exact keyword

    Seems like a point of contention :) is it better to have a stronger PBN site, or a less strong PBN site that ranks for your keyword?
