    So i've been looking and digging into seeing where my competitors are getting there links from and they are all PNB's my question is would they have added all the content on the dates mentioned i.e some posts go back to Aug 2012 or would they have just tweaked this via Wordpress published date?

    On the older posts the posts look genuine but if you look at the more recent posts they are basically full of spam, but they are ranking high! I know they may not rank high long term, but they have been ranked now for a few months and within this niche that equals some serious $$ so I want to replicate this myself.

    From just looking at ahrefs, i can see at least 4-5 PNBs linking and giving them serious link juice and MajesticSEO shows the homepage of some there PNB to have over 500k external backlinks!

    If I were to replicate this:

    1) Would it be possible as I mentioned about the dates of posts and if that was the case it would take a few years :)
    2) Have they just bought a good PR site kind of similar to our niche drip fed content then just, scrapeboxed, SENuke the rest to have so many backlinks?
    3) If this was you in a niche which you could easily rank in what steps would you take? As it is a popular niche, but this guy is dictating it by taking majority of page 1 with different sites.

    All help would be appreciated!

    How dirty do you wanna play? You could also go the same route he is going and out PBN him with expired domains and auctions. Alternatively you could go clean and build yours the white hat way and report his PBN and spam links to Google. After which you should rank with ease. Both can beat him. How is your call.

    And this post is why you should hide your PBN from link crawlers when you make one.

    It has nothing to do with posts like this. It's just good sense to cover your tracks.

    Yeah its time to just play dirty, been trying whitehat for too long in this niche had good results until this guy came along lol

    So about the blog posts back in 2012 would they have been posted then or is that just a PBN tactic?

    That is exactly what Google wants, do you think that tomorrow I will not report you.
    Do whatever you want, but do not help Google.

    PBN has been in existence for as far back as SEO began. It's not strange to have PBN since 2012, they are just any kind of links that we expect to remain on our site forever. The difference is, with PBN you can easily take them down when needed because you own it or it was setup on your behalf and any good provider wouldn't mess with the login details.

    These are usually domains bought off the auction and very pricey. Runs into thousands of dollars if you really want to dominate a niche but worth all penny cos they work only when setup correctly. However, if you have an aged domain wit PR you can also convert it to a PBN for your site.

    I don't understand you, there is no two ways about these. Get the right domain, put up relevant content, host and link to your money site.
