    as i truly believe private blog networks is one of the best solutions for ranking for small to medium competition kw's, i have one conflict which is getting even more rellevant lately-

    If the PBN sends the links to all customers, they will probably get spammed shortly, and G will notice (i guess) that there are lots of queries for link searches compare to normal search traffic and other sources. In other words, the only ones to visit the blog posts will be SB and such.

    But, if the PBN won't send the links to the customers, then how can you be sure they were delivered?

    is choosing a reliable PBN that doesn't send links, and checking it manually over time with tools like majesticseo or aherfs is the right solution?

    Your points are indeed valid. I actually know of at least 1 blog network that was literally taken down by it's users with constant SB link checking, pretty much a ddos attack on the network!

    Networks that don't disclose urls aren't really a problem - with the right tools you can check whether you're getting links or not. And there's always a degree of trust when buying links/intangible goods online.

    In my experience though they work well at the moment, so maybe stop thinking about it and act now ;)

    You can make a small paragraph with a unique identifier like 872382jje777 in the post. This wy you can find the posts and see how many are already indexed.

    when they get indexed i'll probably know, but that will take a while and not all posts are indexed at all, the problem you can't really make sure that the PBN is actually delivering what they should. guess just have to count on them?

    The problem I have with this is I know of no blog network that has all their sites on the same server. I have a bit over a 100 sites in mine and the most I have in one location is 8 and I average about 5 sites per location. While not everyone may have them spread out that much I can not see very many network owners putting them all in one place.

    Even if they did have them grouped up like that it would have to be a pretty crappy server to get taken down by a bunch of scrapebox link checks.

    If you have a network then you need to do a lot more than just install wordpress and dump a load of posts on it!

    We take big measure to make sure than users cannot affect our networks, we can actually afford to lose a network and still carry on as normal, ok we would prefer that it didn't happen

    You want to stay away from networks that simply rank and tank a site by allowing anyone to post onto the site without any moderation at all, that normally filters out spammers and scrappy links on a site

    If you want to track the links your getting use a 301 domain and let majestic seo pickup the links then you can compile a list of the links and optionally blast the urls.

    {identifier 1 I identifier 2 I identifier 3... identifier 10 }you could try to use multiple unique identifier to track your posts without leaving to much tracks.

    That's the dumbest fucking thing I think I've ever read here. And it must be your first day on the internet if you believe that.
