I've got a site that I made thats ranking #11 with no links. Ive made plenty like this before, and from my experience with competition this low it should rank 1-4# with 1 pbn link. So I created a pbn and shot a link at it -- no effect at all after 2 weeks. Figuring it was just a dud pbn I created another and tried again -- same thing, no effect after 3 days now. I've gotten duds in the past but never two in a row like this. The only thing ive been doing different is being a bit more lax on the google paranoa. In other words, I'll have chrome open listening to a movie while working on the pbn in firefox, and might not even bother clearing ff cookies first. Is that a possible reason for why the pbn didn't work? We're all careful about security but could they really associate a pbn to your ip that way and divow any power to your money sites -- or is this just paranoa? Both of these pbn sites had content I personally wrote and everything gets indexed in under 12 hrs. So I don't get it. Again this has happened before but never twice in a row.
