    My logic says that would be suicide, any opposite thoughts?

    Yes, it is. Don't leave footprints between your PBN's. Not just for Google but for your competitors. I don't think that the google bots will pick up on this but a manual review could most certainly flag it.

    Just don't use adsense on your pbn's full stop bro.

    It depends whether you want your PBN to be discovered or not. Assuming you don't, then certainly, don't use the same 'unique' code on each site.

    Might as well send an email or tweet to Matty with a list of your PBN, if you were to put adsense on your PBN

    my PBN has 2 tiers, with the top tier being mini authority sites. I've actually got the adsense code of some complete strangers on a couple of these sites. I just grabbed it from their source code.

    When I got my penalty and manual review they seem to have missed every site that had a strangers code there, while ripping the guts out of my network, so take from that what you will.

    Offcourse. Why would you want to use adsense on your private network? Are they bringing you traffic along with links ?

    Do you believe your competitor reported you? Did you allow Ahrefs/Majestic/Moz to crawl your site? Did you use SEO hosting? I'm really curious about what mistakes you made, and why.

    I'm positive I was reported, not by a serious competitor, but dreamer hoping to get a piece of the action. The top 3 in my niche all got nailed within a week, and we are in a totally non spammy niche.

    I did have a few sites with SEO hosting, but that was only 20 out 0f 120, the rest were all spread around various cheap hosts. I didn't have crawlers blocked, as I realty didn't think there was a need to block them due to the nature of my niche and competitors. All sites had either private whois or were registered to friends and family. As for content/design all were on standard free themes with virtually no plugins, and what plugins were used were not used on multiple blogs. Basically it was a slow burn very private network. I never sold a post on it and only linked to myself in every 3rd or 4th post (if that), having many posts without a link at all.

    All in All I lost about 80 of the sites, but interestingly not one of the one's with a strangers adsense code.

    My money site was hit in Feb 13 and for the sake of my network (which was in 1 piece still) I decided to try and wait it out as I'd only been hit for my main keywords, it was only after submitting a recon request (October) that someone went after my network with a manual inspection. And from the fact that not one site with a random adsense code was deindexed suggests to me that it was manual as that was the single factor differentiating those sites from the others.

    (This is all from my head and over a year old now so maybe an error or two)

    Why stop with just Adsense code?

    You should set-up a YouTube channel and throw in some press releases as well. :rolleyes:

    Yes it is...especially if you use GA with it. If you want your PBN to be private, you should avoid any footprints. Monetize the websites with different affiliate programs instead.

    Placing adsense code in PBN is a joke. To keep it real you sign up with other different CPC providers and put that on your PBN.

    I certainly earn with my PBN's, but not via adsense :)

    I did read, however, a few days ago someone suggesting to randomly put adsense code into your PBN properties, in order to make them appear 'real'. Which, if they get traffic, certainly has a degree of merit I guess.

    Adsense code. Still I don't see it as a good idea but maybe it's just me.

    All my PBN sites are hand written unique content (30 sites) and they are already getting slight traffic although it has been a month or so since I have started them. Why do people assume PBN's don't get traffic?

    Actually I am planning to make them rank well for their keywords and sell posts.
