Hello everyone, first of all, I wanted to apologise for my broken English, it is only 3rd language that I learnt... So please do not judge me because of that! Then if this post is going to be wrong, just let me know, I will remove it with no problems. BUT.. I hope many of You- new IMers will see this... I just wanted to explain you the "Ugly truth about most PBN services online..." and why I will never order it again! I will just build my own PBN for "spammy" niches and a different pbn for citation boosts(because I used network services just for these 2 reasons) Well most of offered PBNs are great just on the paper, or on BSTs... And I am pretty sure sometimes admins are getting different kind of backlinks, that is why those sellers are getting positive reviews and their BSTs are being approved... I will not link this thread to any seller(I have ordered similar services from like ~10 sellers and just 1 of them was good, but I suspect that he removed the backlinks 2 months later to keep the quality of the PBN), but IF you decide to order any related services, do a proper analysis afterwards and save those reports for months and if something goes wrong, reveal it to others, people like me! But on the other hand, what's the point? 0 of the sellers are offering refunds, which is absolute BS. What did I see on those reports? 1. Spammed domains which can hurt the MS; 2. Absolutely ridiculous TF and massive CF; 3. LOTS OF OBL (domain with TF of 10 and DA 15 will help few money sites, but now imagine, all this link juice is being spread through 30 money sites? It loses the value!); 4. Sellers are promising permanent homepage posts, but after a month or two they are being pushed to the 2nd page. (Why that is important? Because ~95% of all link juice is on the homepage and when you are being dropped to the 2nd page, that backlink becomes useless); 5. Most of those PBN domains look really spammy, there is really small chance that it can pass a google manual verifications... So the chance of Penguin penalty for your money sites grows up(think about buffer sites, citations)!; 6. Ok, I agree that there some good sellers, BUT most of the times those sellers are sending just partial reports... 2 months later I see lots of backlinks being removed... And We CAN NOT BLAME THEM, because we do not see what they provided... But we still pay the money and pretend to be happy... That service costs too much to be bad! Those were my thoughts... And keep in mind that plugins that block crawlers are bullcrap too! Do not fall for that! Not many serious IMers will use them on their own PBN because it will put a trigger on it. What do I mean? Who uses those plugins? Only BLOG NETWORKS and if I know it, do you think google dont? I can charge you 500$ for 50 domains, make a crappy pbn of 20 domains, link them to your money sites and tell you that 30 other domains will not appear to majestic and arefs because crawlers are blocked... just LOL; 7. I have met this guy on a skype group and he told me that he uses GSA to "boost" his purchased pbn links and I asked how much do you boost them?, he answers- few million backlinks on each site... LOL... Imagine your Money Site is on the same network! Imagine what google thinks about your site? How many people "boosts" their PBNs? 8. Yesterday I got another report... Seller promised all the backlinks to be of minimum 10 TF.. I received the reports and all the posts weren't on the homepage and all of them had 0 TF. Really? Oh remembered the 9th point: What kind of business is that $1.99 per a blog post? Article would cost more then that + who wants to trash their PBN and get no profit? I promise that there lots of sellers with really nice BSTs that provide absolutely 0 VALUE. And I know WE can not blame anyone just ourselves, because WE are quite lazy to build couple extra lower quality PBNs and keep the control of everything... I just wanted to share my experiences with you guys, especially with NEW IMERS, who do not understand everything! Be careful and share your experiences!
