    Hello,
    many people use web 20 as their T1 to rank money site. Since web 20 created on wordpress is treated as a fresh new domain, isn't it better to register a fresh new com domain and treat it as your own PBN?
    I quess more backlink control + more authority in google's eyes.

    What's your opinion folks?

    Have seen a good number of other thread on here comparing PBNs and Web 2.0s as tier 1 links and pretty much everyone on the forum agrees that PBNs are substantially more powerful and useful than web 2.0s.

    Should be noted that when PBNs are made, generally expired domains with existing links are used, rather than registering a fresh/new domain as mentioned in the initial post. You can make a PBN completely from scratch, but you'll generally have better results with a good existing backlink profile.

    Web 2.0s are nice in that:
    * Hosting/registration is free, so you can make a ton of them
    * Can rank lower competition keywords
    * Useful part of strategy for more competitive keywords, but won't get that far on their own for that type of term

    PBNs are better overall because:
    * More control over domain
    * Existing backlink profile from expired domain / previous owner

    However, for successful PBNs you do need to find quality expired domains and will have higher costs for the project, although if done correctly will pay for itself with better return on investment.

    TL;DR PBNs are going to just be much stronger overall, although more costly to manage and you need to spend time finding a quality domain. You might as well have some decent Web 2.0s in your toolbag as well, although understand they are generally weaker.
