    Do you think private made site links with good majestic metrics can work in the long run done with authority links and social signals to money site(s)?

    Do you think g00gle will target pbns or is it simply confusing to do that, i.e. they may rather go after public ones?

    Thanks

    Nothing is permanent, with that being said pbn are working at the moment. If you want to make money with seo, just use them. Once your pocket is filled with money any other methods that come at a later time will also be useful to you.

    All a PBN is is a website people build just for the purpose of stuffing with articles and a backlink. The quality depends ENTIRELY upon how its made, the content, the metrics, the age, and who its backlinking to.

    I got manual actions on my site because they found the PBN, which was really Public not Private.

    If you get caught then your site is almost certain to be hung drawn and quartered by Google, they really, really despise PBNs.

    If you do it then make sure it truly is private as in only you uses it, but then you would probably still have some risk if they found it.

    Google cant stop PBNs unless you leave footprints.

    No footprints = nothing google can do.

    If you do it carefully, how is Google going to know if it's a PBN or not? They can't.

    Yeah, if you keep it private and cover your tracks they work awesome. Obviously no one can predict the long run, but like others have said - you have to grab the money while it's still working!

    But making them look like a real site and making sure you cover tracks really should keep them going for a while.

    Also how to they know that every link on every PBN they catch is a paid link and not just a cover link? They would be slamming Wikipedia if they did lol.

    Build high quality sites that look real with no footprints on authoritative domains. They work for me. I don't see how else properly built PBN's won't work unless Google manually starts selecting websites to rank in the top ten. And with the internet growing, that's never going to be possible. Backlinks and social signals to a website will always have an effect on a sites rankings IMO.

    Dunno, but it IS game over for your site if they decide you're guilty. They're judge, jury and executioner so be careful.

    Juries need strong evidences to issue punishment. Its all up to you.

    Do the crime without any evidence (footprints).

    Focusing on metrics, authority links and social signals isn't enough. Much more goes into building a sustainable pbn. Learn everything you can about pbn hosting, content, footprints, absorb, rinse and repeat.


    While public pbn's are greater targets for Google, you still need to minimize your footprints, etc. Otherwise, you'll be affected as well.
