    Hello! I see the need to use fake adresses and names for the PBN sites, so I am wondering what will happen, if the PBN gets found? It will become ineffective, that is clear, but what about my Money Site? Will it get any damage as well? Thanks

    If your network gets found and you KNOW there is something wrong with it I would get your money site off it. But they prob already know your money site was on there already. Good Luck

    If you believe Cutts, they tend to only devalue the link source, rather than penalize the recipient of the links... but I've been fortunate enough to not have first hand experience, so I'm pleased to say that I don't know first hand :)

    I don't know that he's an asshole... he's certainly a worth opponent, but, he seems quite fair and reasonable in my opinion.

    I'd say 100%. If your PBN gets caught in a manual review they are def. taking your site down.

    I would think that a manual review would be the extreme case. G uses AI more than people.

    Didn't this sort of thing happen when Google went after BMR? Money sites got hurt

    If there's clear evidence of purchasing paid links then they will penalize your site, make your PBN so good that it passes a manual review, in fact don't even think of it as a PBN, think of it as building niche sites that stand on their own....then link to your site, it's not illegal and plenty of big brands do this, they just call them "sister sites"......

    One of the main selling points about creating and running your own PBN is that you have 100% control over the links. If it gets found out and your money site is penalised then you can remove the links within hours and submit a reinclusion request. Assuming Google do not see anything else wrong with your money site, it should get the penalty lifted. Although, of course, without the PBN links you might find that even without a manual penalty, it does not rank anywhere for anything.

    Thanks for the answers, my friends! My biggest worry is, if someone (maybe competition) checks the link profile of my site -> finds my PBN sites with FAKE user data & adress and reports it to the Denic/Afnic/Whois, so the PBN site is taken away from me -> which I believe would lead to unhiding of my PBN. (Other footprints I can take care of).. How likely is that to happen, what do you think about this scenario?

    This is what people should be doing. I did this a few years ago and each mini site targeted a specific keyword, and they were ranking top ten for their keyword. I was stupid though and started using public networks, and they all got penalized.
