Running a Private Blog Network or buying links from a PBN

  • Hi everyone. I'm checking with you guys if you have any experience with this. Sorry if couldn't find a more suiting forum for this question but overall PBN is usually done for promoting a business. So what I'm doing is deeper research on PBNs, and I would really love to get a picture of what it takes to successfully run a PBN and stay under the radar.

    Are you running a PBN, and how difficult is it? What do you think about the risks?

    Have you bought links from a PBN and how did it go? What is your backup plan if G deindexes the PBN?

    So I just released a video about why I believe this is a very risky strategy. In this video, I talk about my experience investing over $1000 on Fiverr testing random traffic gigs with 1-3 Tier Networks and other traffic gigs. It was a long time ago, but it ended up being a complete failure when it came to ranking on Google or making money online.

    I also talked about something I thought was suspicious when I checked a thread at a forum market place (not this forum). I need to know if this is common practice or if I just imagine it.

    Then I talk about people that have been unsuccessful for a long time, and I shed light on the reason why that is. I talk about how I changed my strategy to something that makes sense. It is just disappointing that I didn't do this 10 years ago.

    I'm not sure if I'm allowed to link to my video, so I'll refrain from doing that, but it would help explain what I mean. Let me know if I can add it. Thank you.
  • Hi,

    I've done both techniques and both are black hat.
    A better approach would be to do guest posting, but if you want to go your way, PBN is better, but it requires much more time and money.
    On the other side, you can buy quality backlinks, but that works only in short term (from my experience).

    Best of luck!
