    I have been pondering the idea of creating my own PBN's for a niche or two.

    Reason behind that is, I can make sure there is fresh content, also I can make sure the link stays the homepage.

    What do you guys think?

    Is the costs worth it, or should I continue buying PBN links for link building.

    Building your own PBN (by either hiring someone else to handle the content, or writing it yourself) is a great idea.

    Having your own PBN is great for the reasons you list plus:
    • It is actually private
    • You can easily make changes to test things and see results in SERPs
    You can still buy links as well. There are benefits to doing both.

    If done the right way it will be safer and more impactful when the links are from your own PBN.

    Just be sure to not leave any footprints and make everything look as legit as possible.

    Your own PBB is a long journey. But definitely works. Good luck and don't forget about proxies.

    Yes because you have full control of what content goes on your PBN and it is really unlike a public network .If you set up your PBN properly and rank your moneysite your ROI will cover costs of building one.

    Its a good idea to create your own PBN, because what ever the content you will post it will be unique and mostly verify from you, you are like or not

    I think so, bro
    It is the only reliabe way to get high qualified and safe backlinks.
    And actually it is not that hard to build one of your own, 10~20 qualified sites with decent DA/PA is OK. Because in SEO quality if always more & more important than quatity.

    Too much time consuming etc, I'd rather hire a few people to do that for me (I am NOT looking for someone to buy a service or sth, just saying, NO PMS please)

    PBNs are good as long as you follow the name - "Private" - and of course leaving no footprints. Just be sure to link out to other non-competing authoritative sites. Do the obvious stuff like different domain registrars, different hosting, WHOIS, etc. The main thing too is ultimately PBNs cost money so the ideal situation is to make sure each PBN site is bringing in its own money as well - at least enough to cover the costs.

    Yes. On a long term basis, owning your own PBN is the best thing to do. Just ensure that there is minimal footprints.

    Exp domain prices are 100% more expensive than a few months ago. You will need to invest $1000 every month.

    The question is- is it worth it?

    OP, if you think that the advantage of PBN is that you can have your posts on homepage, then you will get slapped very fast. Full homepage articles are imo one of the top 5 PBN footprints. I go through hundreds of domains daily and 80% of the sites that have full homepage articles are former PBNs. 15% are mommy blogs and 5% is random.

    Also, it's not true that you have to spend $1000 every month on PBN, that's just completely off. I wonder what you would be spending on $1K a month. PBNs are pretty much set and forget, it's not a rocket science.

    And if you want long term stuff and be safer, then your own PBNs are a way to go.
