Should I buy high quality $500 PBNs or keep scraping them?

    I'm curious if it's worth puchasing those PBNs with links from places like microsoft.com, with high metrics and such rather than scrape less good ones myself. Currently my network has 30+ PBNs, but none of them are amazing and most are scraped by me.

    Are those expensive PBNs in auctions worth it?

    I often wonder the same. A bunch of 'okay' domains vs a few really good domains. But I think the issue is domains are getting so expensive right now, it might be best to have more okay ones than overpay for really good ones. A really good domain can go for $1000. It would be a hell of a lot less work to set up, but would you get better results from that one domain compared to say 50 okay domains? Probably not. That being said you'd have to factor in time as well. It would take a hell of a lot of time to set up those 50 domains properly plus hosting. Say $1 each per month hosting, so that's $50/month hosting, that alone is $500 for the year. 30-60mins (I often spend even more time than that) to set up each one, that's 25-50hrs of work. Factor in how much you value your time and it adds up.

    Good point with the hosting. I wonder if a $1k domain is better than 5 okay ones, or 15, whatever that number is.

    No need to buy $500 domains, you need to find sellers that sell auction domains for $40-$60.

    They get the ones that slip through for a few bucks and resell them, the hard part is finding those sellers.

    2 have a BST here and 1 I also found here but he has no BST.
