    1. When is it good to start making PBN links? I mean ones from my own private network. Should I build normal diversity links first (web2.0, profiles, wiki, article, press release etc.) to gain a little bit authority first?

    2. What about the anchor diversity? Should I use only exact match keyword anchors on PBN posts or how do you handle this?
    I think I am really struggling on that, because I think sometimes I over-optimize the anchors and it is doing more harm than charm.

    1. It depends on the domains you are using for your PBN. Ideally you are buying domains that already have diversified link profiles and already have a little bit of authority. However, I think if you are building a fresh domain as part of a PBN, it would probably be best to get it some authority before pointing it at your money site.

    2. Anchor diversity should be diversified always, no matter what platforms you are linking from. Using exact match keyword anchor on every site will end in tears for you as your PBN gets deindexed and your money site gets penalized/deindexed as well!

    I always build normal links before PBN. That way I can check will my site rank, will it gain some authority and if it does, I start dripfeeding PBN links like few a week for like 3 weeks and then I get some good rankings I start doing more of both.

    No, you should not use ONLY exact anchor. Use LSI keywords as well as brand anchor. If I throw lots of PBN links, I start using generic anchors as well.

    EDIT: Whoops. Godwin already provided with answers.

    I always wait 2-3 months before dropping pbn's. My process is this;
    1) get onsite right
    2) Optimise social accounts and link together
    3) Highly optimise G+ business account and submit 50+ Citations
    4) Some web2.0's and quality blog comments
    (all the above is naked url or branded anchors)
    5) PBN's with exact match anchors

    I made newbie mistake of making most of my bank links anchor optimized for my keyword :( probably about 80%

    Should i start building LSI and other anchor links, or go back and start replacing my links?

    I would go back and replace some anchor texts. 80% is a lot in my opinion

    Yes, then you can move onto other types of link building once you established a link profile. Also, LSI for your keywords indeed.

    I always start building PBN links as soon as i get my site ready. Start slow and add more over time. Diversify your anchors as much as possible. Use long-tails, short sentences, branded and naked anchors.

    If it's a new site, i would star with some web2.0s/press releases just to warm up the site. Then I'd start dropping pbn links but not all at the same time - spread out.

    As for anchor diversity - partial matches work great. G will pick up the context from your article on your PBN domains, and it already knows what you site is relevant to (if your onsite is good).
