    So I was reading this article today about PBNs getting hit. It was on Niche Persuits by spencer haws. I have a lot of my money sites ranked with PBNs and I wanted to know if anyone got hit on sites ranked with PBNs? I think it is bullshit personally but I know someday they are going to figure out a way to kill sites ranked with PBNs especially sites ranked with PBNs exclusively.

    Thoughts, experiences from the past 2 weeks? New rankings? Manual "thin content penalties" is what he got which makes me think the dude got a targeted hit from exposing his sites on a blog to continue the propaganda.

    Last thought google is about to make me a true black hat for 70% of my projects.

    Yeah I've been seeing heaps of people complain their sites have been de-indexed. Not to sound elitist or anything, but these people are idiots anyway. I very high percentage of people complaining are ones that bought CloudPBN, use the same themes, register all their domains in one hit, use SEO hosting and bla bla bla... If you have a IQ above 50 then I think you're ok.

    All the recent threads about PBNs getting hit makes me believe Google hired hundreds of W130SN's for their spam team lately.

    Yeah do some searching. There has been ton's of thread's about this. Also, nohatdigital released a new podcast episode regarding their mass pbn deindexation. Check it out, they have some data analysts expert that provides useful tips on how to hide footprints. I probably will make a post that is a footprint checklist in the next few days.
