    Hey,

    Long time lurker, first time poster.

    I have a few questions about my PBN.

    I have around 100 sites, unique Wordpress title/tagline/theme/unique shared hosting/Ahrefs & Majestic blocked/PR 1-4 and good DA/PA and all that good stuff.

    February - early June of this year, I'd rank around 2-3 sites a month, medium competition, on page 1 with no problem at all.

    The sites are still ranked, but lately there has been discussion about the new 30 day wait period.

    I made a website 5 days ago, and it's ranked bottom of page 2/top of page 3 for both keywords (rankings change every few hours) and I'm using the same PBN.

    For content, I buy 25 articles, spin them on WordAI and each article I post on 4 different sites (spun version) and include links to sites like Wikipedia, Ask etc

    Now, my question is: did my PBN lose power since I didn't post to it for a month? I spent a lot of money on the sites, and it's been around 5 weeks since I've posted anything on them. Is it the 30 day wait period (I heard it started in May, and I've ranked sites all through May and early June on page 1), or is it my PBN losing power due to posts not being frequent?

    I spent quite a lot on the domains (in the thousands), spent countless time checking the links profiles/bidding on GD auctions/buying and setting up shared hosts (arghh!). I've made my money back from the domains, so that's not the problem. The problem is are the domains dead, and do I need to make another PBN, or can I continue rebuilding the sites with regular posting (once per week, I schedule the posts for different days, so not all the posts are made on the same minute/hour/day) and giving them more authority.

    Thanks.

    A bit of patience is all you need IMHO.

    The site would normally be ranking by now, all the sites before it. I'm wondering if it's lost power because of it not being posted to in quite a while, or Google has become stricter on sites reaching page 1.

    If you are worrying, then just post some articles to the PBN. There is nothing we can do when doing seo, just keep on trying and if the site does not work the way it should be, after many tries, just leave it and pay more attention to the rest of the sites which are performing well. IM is a number game, some perform well, some average, some disappointing. One cannot just rely on 1 or 2 sites.

    Not anymore dude. Your network is prob fine. If you just built the site 5 days ago then you will prob be waiting a while like most of us now. 30 days....if your lucky. usually longer.. Just keep building links my man and when the waiting period is done your rankings you are expecting should be there.

    If you're using spun articles on your money sites that could be the problem. Google HATES duplicate content after Panda 4.0. And the SandBox is real, so the fact that you're on page 2/3 on a 5 day old site is a victory, not a problem.

    I don't understand why the need for so many articles on PBN sites.

    Like others said, I don't see a problem with your PBN. Page 2 in 5 days shows that your PBN is going strong. Google seems to have implemented some sort of waiting period for new sites/links (the debate is still going on everywhere about this), and you'll most likely to wait anywhere around 30-60 days to rank. There may be ways to go around this waiting period, but I haven't seen or found a viable solution to speed up the process yet. So don't panic, keep doing what you're doing and you'll most likely get there.
