    Hi

    Has anybody had success with a PBN recently? I am looking to invest quite a bit of cash in a new PBN for a reasonably competitive niche.

    I would love to hear from somebody who could tell us their before and after rankings and how many and what kind of domains they used in building it?

    There has been a lot of hype lately about these PBNs and a lot of BST threads on it, however they all seem be offering 5-10 or websites/blogs. I am talking 250+ on separate hosting accounts rather than using SEO bs hosting.

    Looking forward to your success stories and results.

    Yes. Though, my site has lower competition but I gave only 10 PBN links, it is now on 16th position from nowhere (Talking about two days ago ranking of my keyword)

    We have a decent size network ( around 1100-1200 sites) and they work awesome. The initial build can be strenuous, but once built, they are very efficient. The key is having a solid domain supplier. My guy sells them at a decent price and refunds any I dont like. If it were not for him our network would probably be half the size it is today.

    Once you grow your network large their are a lot of precautions to take, but again, very, very worth it.

    I'm starting to look into this myself to see how it all holds up. It seems like a lot of people are having some real success.

    I am considering it myself but really would love to know whether each network should link back to a single site or whether a single network can be used to rank multiple, related sites.

    Hi

    How competitive are your keywords and how do you classify a "solid" domain?

    Yep. PBNs work just as well as ever. The only drawback to PBNs is getting them deindexed, but that only happens if you are sloppy.

    If you want to avoid getting them de-indexed, I would recommend adding plenty of content, so they look like legitimate sites. Put all of your PBNs on separate hosts, make sure they don't all look identical, and don't use SEO hosting services. The most common reason for getting a PBN site deindexed is hosting it on the same IP as a bunch of other PBNs (not necessarily your own).

    You can use the same network for multiple sites in the same niche. Just don't link to the same money sites with all of your PBN sites.

    You have to use some degree of critical thinking to get the best bang for your buck, while minimizing your footprint.

    For example:

    Let's say you have 10 PBN sites in your network and 3 money sites (A,B, and C).

    If you link all 10 of your PBN sites to all 3 money sites, you will leave one hell of a footprint. DON'T DO THAT!

    On the other hand, let's say that you link all 10 to site A. 2 or 3 to site B and another 1 or 2 to site C. That would be perfectly fine.

    It's not crazy to think that a PBN site related to "dog training" (for example) would link to multiple sites that are also related to dog training.

    Just be sure that ALL of your sites are on different hosts, they all link out to relevant authority sites (not just your own), and don't link EVERY one of your PBN sites to the same few money sites.

    Use your head and try to avoid making it obvious that you are using PBNs and you'll be fine.
