    Hi guys,

    I have dilemma . I am creating PBNs from archive so i resubmit domain old content from archive.org

    But here is the point . When i recreate pages (same urls, same dates, same images etc) i recreate also pages which got good links . So link juice go to inner pages not to homepage where my link is.

    What is better then? Recreate these TOP pages and loose link juice which could go to homepage or not and redirect them to homepage?

    Thanks for all tips

    I build them out so I can maintain the back-links going to them and any traffic as well

    I wouldnt redirect to the homepage. Why not link link 2-3 times to your site instead (from home page and inner pages)?

    If you can make it look legit, I dont see why not.

    Since most people doing PBNs have been redirecting 404s to homepage, it has become quite the PBN footprint.

    Yes, the link juice redirector plugins such as 404 redirection plugin is becoming a serious footprint these days. It would be better to add links back to the homepage from inner pages to flow the juice back to your homepage.

    Realistically, how could Google detect that you're using a plugin instead of doing a manual redirect? It's still a 301 redirect -- it's not as if the plugin is using its own special type of redirect which identifies it as a plugin. Of all the footprints Google would look for, 301ing broken links to the homepage is probably the least likely one to raise any suspicions since so many real sites do it.

    Because it makes 0 sense for anyone in the world to redirect his old pages to a homepage. You would redirect them to the new pages but never to the homepage. You can make the 301s manually if you want, but if all your broken inner links from before lead to the homepage, it's penalty time.

    Why not recreate the whole website itself from archive. And never redirect 404 to homepage, asking for trouble with that.

    Don't redirect to the homepage, keep the site natural how it was. It will last long term that way also.

    I've recovered websites 3-4 years ago doing this and they are still in great shape.

    I hope you don't mind, but my response is a little bit off-topic.

    You're saying that you are going to recreate the old content of the dropped domain that you are rebuilding.

    You also mentioned that images and other information.

    Wouldn't this run into copyright issues?

    I asked this because on the one hand, it's obvious that whoever had that content basically didn't care about it because the domain expired.

    On the other hand, doesn't copyright law protect content creation?

    So, the moment somebody creates the content, rights are created.

    Do those rights survive the work?

    So, I'm kind of confused as to what the legalities are because the last thing I would want is to recreate a website and somebody runs after me because I basically just replicated their own content even though their domain disappeared.

    My style would be to create a Silo structure and direct them to homepage - more link velocity but might look like linkwheel. It's okay imo..

    Peace,

    Rebuild, never do a 404 -> 301 Homepage. The reason why is simple: While Google might not detect your PBN, they detect that the page that you redirect to (homepage) doesn't match the content they found on the subpage before. This means a soft 404, so no link juice is transferred, although it's a 301.
