    I have a question for you guys that have much more experience in SEO that have and am not here to blast on anyone just looking for the straight story. Does quality content matter when doing a article for a PBN or Web 2.0 post ? I ask this because I see a lot of services and frankly the quality and content correctness leave a lot and I mean a lot to be desired, at least reading it from a human aspect looking for accuracy of content, correct grammar and readability. So does it matter or is all of this stuff just content for search engines where its just LSI and keywords that matter and if quality content matters and you just get this stuff do you see a roller-coaster effect in your serps and rankings leaving you at best a little ahead and worst with less cash in the wallet ?

    Thanks

    This guy claims that the content doesn't matter. Basically he thinks that "why waste time on quality content" due to the fact that if google discovers the PBN they will slap you regardless of how good the content is.
    Check the thread out http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/697565-pbn-q-ask-me-anything-about-how-i-build-manage-rank-pbns.html
    Good luck

    There many ways to it.

    Some say who cares, some say you should care. It all comes down how important to you the money site is.

    For me e.g I am working one small affiliate website and will probably make an extra $100 a month from it. Now from a website that will make me just $100 it is probably not a good idea to pay for quality content right?

    Whereas my amazon niche site which will make me $1000+ a month if it ranks and can be long term passive income if I treat it right, original content tier 1 makes more sense.

    Think about your money site and expectation and then build tier 1 accordingly.

    Dude content is very important for every blog and PBN, suppose if it's not good you can get penalty by Google

    You want manually written content that is at least English readable. Google knows gibberish, and they can some spun crap. For best rankings you want unique, manual, readable.

    On T2/3/4 etc, etc you may not be able to always afford manual and readable... but on T1 for sure you prefer it.

    There are two main opinions about how PBN should be built:

    1) Make it look like a real website regularly updated with quality articles , if google
    or your competition found it you could be in the clear because, hey,
    it looks like a real website and not just a PBN site pumping link
    juice to your money site.
    *Less risk, more money and time

    2) Throw a quick site together and load some SEO content on it
    and some plugins that block seo majestic and ahrefs.com, etc. and be
    done with it.
    *More risk, less money and time

    When I made my PBN I went with option #2 because I didn't want
    to spend a lot of time on it. I wanted to set it and forget it. Option #1,
    is safer, but it needs to be maintained like a real site and I don't want
    to invest the money and time into a PBN. You have to weigh the pros
    and cons for yourself.

    I tend to be pretty anal about content, over all that's why the question my site is a very nitch specific service site and it hard to find some out there that really mean it when they say it as to quality ,English as a fist langue content and was just wandering if maybe I was being a bit tough on some out there. I have been through this even with content writing services all be it there are 3 out there that are what I call good like Nixon but. So now I am on the quest for find the same in PBN and Web 2.0 and as this is not a throw away or flip site I think I am going to keep looking for good , relevant , content.

    Poor content still works. With that said, the risk of the pbn getting slapped are higher. Again, it's all about risk vs reward.

    For me, the quality of the network is determined by a few questions. How much time/money do I need to invest? What is the profit potential/ROI? Will this be a long or short-term project? Asking yourself these questions often reveals the answers automatically.

    Like most others, I'm of the view that if it's not churn-and-burn, low ROI project, you should side with premium content. I like @randybishops option #1, so my suggestion is you should treat your PBN as a full-fledged site.

    The content should be readable and unique for good ranking. Otherwise google will find and you will loose your ranking...

    yeah I agree with the ones in saying that quality content is important. Maybe not so much if you don't really want the PBN to last long, but if you really want a longer lasting PBN then definitely write/invest in good quality content. In the long run you are better off with it, and really it can't hurt.

    Seriously? I thought PBNs were for ranking the money website not for readers.

    You didn't even read what the op said. Looking at your profile, you post in new thread every 2 mins. In a hurry to get your post count up?

    To the OP.

    You dont need quality content for PBNs. But it has to be readable and not spinned. I usually pay $1 for 100 words for my PBN content. Sometimes $3 for 500 words. You would probably get away with good spinned content but i wouldn't risk it for something you put in a lot of work and effort.

    In that regard, are the pbn with readable content stronger than the spun content?

    -------------------------------------------------

    Sorry for hijacking the thread:

    Does anybody have suggestions for trusted pbn provider here? Because before you buy, you wont know if pbn is already penalized and he is still selling the crap.
