    I was thinking about all these topics in BST and private blog network sellers.

    It is nice if someone is selling 100% unique content, No report , No footprints and limited spots

    But what is the point of buying it when he will probably close the network when domains will expire? You will lose all links and if you lose all links at the same time from many domains with all other "unique spots" in network guess what? You website will die

    Or do you really think that someone will pay for domain names if there is written "limited spots" ?

    So only point for buying these links is churn and burn or?

    I think assuming he will close the network when the domains expire is not necessarily the correct thing to assume.

    More likely, the op is using this verbage to create a sense of scarcity so that you want to buy now before its too late and the network is closed. A miraculous thing will happen though when the network is "closed", all of sudden there will be an upgrade and increased capacity has been made and just a few more new members can be admitted.

    Creating a sense of scarcity is selling 101.

    In general most PBN sellers are selling links on a monthly plan?

    Unless it is expressly written the links will be up forever, it is safe to assume they won't be.

    That's why you get on a network that is monthly recurring. Do you think the site owner is gonna shut down when he's got incentive to keep it up and running every month?

    I've been apart of a private network for 2-3 years but its heavily underground and not advertised. Not a single site has ever been deindexed and I've paid my monthly fee the whole time.

    Point is to not get on the next fast & super-spiffy network that's advertised up the wazoo as that isn't sustainable.

    Well, you're right... it IS a bit of an issue. So if you think they'll expire and go away you're looking at a very expensive churn and burn campaign. When all 100 or however many spots fill up will some stranger keep paying hosting and domain fee's for the next 10 years? Fact of the matter is the PBN fad is too new to see this crash take place in mass. Could be though. Be careful where you buy.

    I don't think the sellers necessarily have the intent to do the wrong thing - indeed most of the time I think their intent is good.
    High quality, long lasting links, almost always come with a monthly fee attached. If it's a once-off, just know that it will start to die - the only question then becomes 'when'.

    It's all snakeoil. There's no such thing as quality.

    Pretty much ALL SEO is churn and burn nowadays. Google can throw a fit at any time and wipe you off the SERPs at the blink of an eye.

    Most of the time PBN domains will loose PR and may get de-indexed by google. The service provider won't tell this and you not gonna to know. You must believe this and need to play accordingly.

    There's two things you can do set your own up or pay if you pay decent monthly money they wont let the domains expire as it will cost them to much.

    If i pay a one off fee of say $100 dollars i dont expect them to remain forever.
