    Building your own PBN is very tedious and takes a lot of time. Is it wise to build your own or buy links on someones else PBN?

    Why or why not?

    You should make your own to insure quality, less likely to get penalized, and if you do, you can remove the link

    It depends, if you have money but dont want to worry about running a PBN then buy links. But please dont buy cheap links, you are only hurting yourself.

    Building your own PBN is the best option if you have the time and ability to manage it + want to save some money in the long run.

    PBN is really costly. if you can afford must build PBN rather than buy backlinks. The reason the quality matters, and while creating PBN, you should buy expired domains without leaving a footprint :)

    Buying links last as long as the hosting doesnt expire. With a pbn you get what you put into it.

    You can do both but my suggestion is build your own PBN. But if you want to buy links, try to check their reviews first because this will help you find the best one.

    It depends on the quality you have to choose both or either one.
    I think for both methods the amount will be same in case of quality metrics.
    Try to take good decision man;)

    It's always better to have your own private blog network, but that is costly and you can easily screw it up if you don't know what you are doing.

    On the other hand. 95% of the services here on BHW are bad. Like really bad and you can get screwed by buying them as well. And probably even more easily than with PBN.

    So it's entirely up to you and your budget. And whether your project is long term or short term or some kind of churn and burn. Every project needs a plan. :)
