PBNs are the secret weapon top SEO experts use to safely rank websites quickly & easily, when done right. Below are some of the more frequently asked questions regarding PBNs on how they are created and used to rank websites.
A properly designed PBN is a network of several domains that have PageRank and are not associated or linked to each other in any way. They will have their own unique DNS and IP address along with privacy enabled. In addition, strategies will be employed to prevent other people from seeing information regarding the domain without hindering search engine bots from crawling the website.
Backlinks will then be placed on a landing page which has actual PageRank from each of those domains. The links will be pointed to a landing page on your designated website. The anchor text will be chosen by you and there will be relevant content around the link. The amount of outbound links should be limited to prevent diluting the link’s “juice” from that page.
Yes. There is ample evidence proving that companies are still out there using quality PBNs to help effectively increase the ranking of websites for themselves and/or their clients. Those who did get hit by Google were either set up incorrectly and/or were huge operations that attracted Google’s attention.
There are many reasons why a PBN is better than other backlinking strategies, here are just a few:
A quality PBN does not come cheap (see “Can I create my own PBN” below for the reasons why) because it requires money, time and knowledge. First, it is expensive to own and operate a PBN for not only researching and buying domains but also the hosting and other software needed. Next, it requires your time to mange the sites properly and make sure they stay safe from both Google and other competitors. Finally, it takes a certain certain combination of skill set, knowledge, and experience to build and properly manage an effective PBN.
With all 3 in place a PBN can produce excellent results so the demand for quality PBNs is high. With that said, you have to look at it just like any other form of marketing and if you spend a few hundred to make a few thousand then your Return on Investment (ROI) makes it worth the investment and justifies any risks you feel you may have in using a PBN.
