What's the longest you have been ranking for with PBNs? Months? Year? Years?

    Let's say you built your own private PBN, taking care of footprints and quality. How long can you rank with these PBN's?

    Damn!

    So can you say it is not a bad thing to estimate rankings with PBNs for a year or two atleast?

    Why not?

    I see competitors ranking with a crappy,shared pbn since 2013.

    The sites above have dedicated pbn.1 pbn/money site,therefore risk is limited to 1 site if someone reports or in case of manual review.

    Yea I have seen those too and can't believe usually how they have survived. SEO is one mysterious lady.

    You can believe it, they do survive as long as you do your homework and put some effort in building your PBN. Get fewer domains for your PBN, but instead of an army of medicore domains, use really strong ones. Don't just build wordpress standard theme sites with 5 badly spun articles, try to revive old content where possible, make it look like a real site. It's no rocket science, the more effort you put in it, the longer it will last. Build a "PSN", a private site network instead of a PBN, noone forces you to use Wordpress Blogs only. Mix in a plain html sites looking like 1998, some image gallery type of site, some bogus local company site, think a little out of the box. Boring work, but I'd rather rank for years by going an extra mile instead of losing valuable domains and having to rebuild the whole network.

    This game requires a little luck, too, especially in niches where spam reports seem to be a daily habit for some people, but a few years id definitely doable.

    7-8 months I've been going hard on it, have 200 sites with spun content now. Main thing is to keep the hosting different and not buy the $4 pbn links that link out to another 50 sites.

    Just started a PBN a short time ago and slowly testing 1 PBN link at a time to see the effect. The first test is looking stable after a week or so of watching the result. I added the PBN link somewhere around the start of when I started using SERPMOJO to track the rankings. The below is my result from that recent experiment:

    I am taking great care to build high quality. Using static HTML with unique theme. Making everything look legit. Wish I could give a long history like the first guy. Thats awesome to see! Very encouraging results. PBNs are awesome.

    You built one PBN link and got that result? What were the metrics for the site? I have two PBN sites pointing at one of my money site pages and it did pretty much nothing to it.

    It was DA34 with around 200 backlinks all of really good quality. Off the top of my head I can't remember how many linking root domains but it was fairly substantial. It took about 3 or so weeks to show up.
