    Yeah, I do get it. It is a "blog" network..

    But why dont people mix it up?

    - Static frontpage WITHOUT moneysite link + Articles in Menues eg?

    - "Some kind of " silo structure instead of categories?

    .... and the obvious "contact us" is either empty or filled with contat7 crap.

    guess it really just depends on how much effort someone really wants to put into it

    Laziness and/or an unwillingness to pay enough.

    I do similar to what you said with my cheap expired domain pbn's. Why waste time on shitty expired domains, when I can put the work into my MS or high authority pbn?

    My sites have been up for 1-2 years without any issues at all.

    I found a competitor's rather nice PBN. One subtle footprint he set allowed me to gather all his sites.

    Each of his sites was quite different and they're probably worth some $ on their own as individual sites. Very well made and will likely last a decade.

    I have 3 types of PBNS
    - type 1 - wayback bringbacks usually html site
    - type 2 - static front page nice info site
    - type 3 - standard blog with sticky post

    I dont think all people have pbns that are the same but some people get caught in automating and make 100+ blogs that look obvious as hell.

    I have been thinking about these gigs in fiverr recently lots of dudes on there will build you a site for 30 using a simple theme like divi. Could we worth it to get a different dude every time to get you some sites.

    Nothing special. Just something he accidentally did exactly the same on all his sites which was trivial to scrape for.

    and you felt comfortable giving someone all of your hosting information and having them log into the site. Do you think there is a possibility can put some malware or a backdoor on your WordPress.

    Most PBN owners don't put much effort in it. They do what's necessary and then focus on selling posts. But hey, as long as Google is fine with it and gives us the ranks we want?
    I remember I had a review copy for a PBN service that looked somewhat different a while back. Did not place an order afterwards thought so I cant tell if it would have been any better - but I guess not.

    Did I miss something? Link me :D

    Well the site has been up for like nearly 2 years with no issues... plus he would get bashed on Fiverr if he did that. Like I know it is fiverr, but they still care.

    Plus, I don't give two shits about some 6$ a year hosting.

    Because its PBN and most of us don't spend time on building it well. Those who think out of the box can build a well-built PBN which is unique from all others. Anyone can make a PBN easily but only creative minds BUILD it. There is a lot differences over there.

    Yes it is very possible and hard to track in the code.
    I bought an instabuilder license on fiver but installed the official plugin myself but the guy had to log into my WP to activate it.

    I installed a role plugin, made a custom role so he only saw and had access to the plug-in setting. I don't trust anyone through the Internet, always have security measures in place.
