New PBN strategy – Do and Don’t list

In March 2013, I had built a niche website on a health topic on which I had to research quite a lot. No wonder, I was able to rank it really well with none other than the ‘PBN’s’ which I had built from my knowledge over 4 years in SEO.

The site was generating over $600 of passive income monthly after 5 months of work and most importantly patience. The most crucial and important thing that helped me rank this website was the 30 PBN sites which I had crafted beautifully so that I can get the maximum link juice from them. Today, I will tell you some secrets which you can implement on your niche website and private blog network in order to sustain long term rankings easily with minimum work.

You might be wondering what’s so special about PBN’s? Why choose them over the traditional link building methods to rank higher? Why I choose PBN’s over all other methods to rank quicker as well as without fear of losing rankings in the long term?


Let’s start with the facts and figures,the PBN strategy was introduced back in 2010 when many people tried ranking their amazon affiliate niche websites by the use of PBN’s by hosting all the PBN websites with different C class IP’s. People could see a significant jump in their ranking when they used this technique and their competitors were startled as they couldn’t make out how they were being outranked so easily!

In September 2014, Google created a new algorithm which was aimed at penalizing the websites in a particular blog network as they had very thin content and they weren’t updated since a long time. So a lot of websites were de-indexed over the period of 4-6 months in 2014-15.

This taught a lot to the website owners and it’s quite amazing to know how the SEO and bloggers community has grown and how they help each other to understand things and act in the right direction. Statistics show that the efficiency of a Private Blog Network has certainly increased over time even after the penalty by Google. Moreover, the websites ranking on top of Google for the most competitive niches use PBN’s to stay at that place.

What decides your fate while using a private blog network is the tactics you use in order to get the most out of your PBN. When you build a PBN, you need to do it right and not prefer methods which don’t comply with the Google search engine guidelines.

To make sure you all succeed in this year while creating your own PBN, we have prepared a check-list of the Do’s and Don’ts from our experience of 4-5 years with PBN which will really help you to rank your website higher without getting a manual penalty from Google. So let’s begin!

Don’ts – Things that don’t work now for a Private Blog Network

  1. Producing Spun, low quality and thin content for PBN sites: A lot of people think it’s easily possible to publish around 5-6 articles having spun content on a high authority expired domain and getting the ink juice from them. But this is totally against Google’s vision so try to avoid this!
  1. Hosting your PBN on C class IP’s: There has been a trend of hosting the PBN websites on the C class IP addresses which are a big footprint to get penalized. As Google is getting smarter, it is advisable to mix things up and not follow a set plan as SEO requires diversity in all terms.
  1. 301 redirects: The 301 redirect involves a lot of work as well as risk. You would have to add lots of content relevant to your niche and then point it to your website which means you can’t use it to point links to your other websites as well. Google algorithms can be very strict towards 301 redirects as well. You can say PBN is a controlled process while 301 is a bulldozer.
  1. Outbound links: Maintaining the number of outbound links is very important. There should only be one article on your PBN site pointing to your money site as if all the 5 articles would have links to your money site, it wouldn’t look natural to Google.

Do’s – Things that do work and you should implement them while building your PBN

  1. Build a real website: The key to build a ‘great’ private blog network is to make the websites look ‘real’ and not create a bad image when Google visits your site. Choose a good hosting option, install a beautiful relevant theme and consider adding description, logo, About us, Contact us and even a privacy policy page to the site. All this makes the websites look quite real and wouldn’t look spammy at all.
  1. Get Social Signals: Boosting your PBN website with the social signals is a great advantage. As Google gives a lot of importance to the content marketed on the social media websites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other sources. You can create some social profiles related to your niche or brand and point numerous social signals by sharing the content on your website or even buy some services.
  1. Use A class IP’s and multiple location hosting: It is advisable to use different A class IP addresses and multiple locations hosting servers. Also, mixing the IP owners and ASN would be very advantageous here. Check the procedure to find the ASN of an IP below,
  • Head over to
  • Besides seeing your current IP, the site also shows your ISP’s ASN.
  • A click on this number shows how many ASN peers your current ISP has, as well as some other information.
  • On this website, it is also possible to find the ASN of any other website by typing in the URL of the website, then select the tab “IP Info”. The last number (the one beginning with the letters “AS”) is the ASN, followed by the hosting provider. Keep in mind that the ASNs don’t change hands as often as IPs, they are an excellent tool for pinpointing where a website is hosted.
  1. Quality Content with fresh Information: Writing quality content on your PBN websites is very important, I personally prefer iWriter where I get my articles written at $3 for 500 words easily. You just need to Sign Up on the website and click on ‘Get Content’ and enter the specified details for the project and the interested writers will start bidding for it soon. You can hire the one with good skills and minimal charges quite easily.
  1. Outbound links: I personally point out only 1 link to my money site from the PBN site. Let each of your articles also have 2 – 3 other outbound links to authoritative, non-competitive web pages. This is really important because these links provide context about the article and Google takes note that your money site is linked alongside authoritative web pages.

Well, I have tried to put a maximum of my experience out in the above 5 minutes read. I really hope you go out and build a successful niche website and rank on the top of Google by building the most amazing and authority PBN in your niche and even use it for other money websites. If you have any queries or doubts regarding any of the steps mentioned above or any SEO related questions, feel free to comment below and reach me out. I will be the happiness to help you in the best possible way. Cheers!

3 Tools to find good expired domain for your PBN

Ranking my websites using a PBN has always been speedy, easier and sustainable for me since ever. As you all might be knowing a PBN is basically a network of niche relevant aged websites with good metrics. An expired domain can be found on a lot of websites but if you have a list of metrics to be taken care of before choosing one, it might be similar to finding a needle in a haystack.

Today I decided to write this article because many friends have been asking me how I find so many expired domains for my PBN’s so easily. Well, a lot of experience comes into action here but there are some quick metrics you can take care of while choosing an expired domain that would work in the best way for you. Some of the important metrics would be:

  • Trust Flow & Citation Flow: 15+
  • Domain Authority: 20+
  • Referring Domains: 100+
  • Domain Age: 2+ years at least
  • Has links pointing to it from some authority websites

Well, this might be some of the quick things you might want to make sure about the domains you are looking to buy but the most important part is that you would want a place where you can find such domains. I have used 3 services and will be comparing them to help you out choose the best. PBN domain brokers are really vital to choose as they decide whether the time you will invest in searching will actually get you the kind of expired domain you wanted eventually.

Where to Find Expired Domains

If you are looking out for a free service which offers you a lot of features, then ExpiredDomains is a very good choice as it allows you to have a look at the expired domains and the important metrics right on its homepage. Expired Domains has a lot of information about the expired as well as deleted domains. If you are a member (it provides a free Sign-Up) then you can see everything about the particular domain.



What provides?

  • ExpiredDomains has a collection of about 30 TLD’s from which you can choose to buy
  • It updates the list once every 24 hours in order to add the fresh expired domains
  • It has a variety of filters to check the domain name, length, PR, back-links and some additional filters as well
  • You can even use ‘Saved Searches’ to find domains of one kind the next time you want to
  • If you enable E-Mail Updates you will get 1x e-mail per day with new found Domains that match your defined search
  • Though this tool will take a lot of your time for searching the expired domains with preferred SEO metrics but it is a great free service to use if you are low on the budget



PBNlab has grown a lot over the months as Scott over there has developed an excellent expired domain crawler which is a monster to find some great expired domains for your PBN. Finding a domain is as simple as filling in the blanks and clicking on a button, the rest will be done by the PBNLab domain crawler spider. I have personally used PBNLab for finding expired domains and it has proved to be great as I could find many niche relevant high authority domains in a very short time.

What provides?

  • You need to add a keyword phrase so that the expired domain crawler can search for good domains
  • Focus on to generate keyword phrases for crawling, which include “who, what, when, where, professions, communities and how”



  • Start a job, add your keyword phrase in the keyword field, wait for the seed URL’s to return and then click on Finish to add the job
  • A single crawl can get about 70-100 expired domains on an average of which about 2-3 are good and 1 is great in 10 of them so that makes about 7-10 awesome domains you have found using PBNLab crawler



  • Each job takes about 15 minutes to complete, so adding multiple jobs can prove very advantageous here
  • You can choose the one-week plan in which you can find the domains you want and get back later if you want
  • The PBNLab pricing is high but we can consider the value it provides as well. It also pays MOZ and MajesticSEO for the metrics too so you are getting a good deal for the dime you are paying Domain Nabber is a domain registrar but they have recently launched a new tool called the Domain Nabber which helps you to find expired domains very quickly. This is a backorder system that allows you to “be first in line” for when a domain drops, (expires) from the current registrant.

What provides?

  • You need to have an account on, choose the TLD and select ‘All’ in the Drop date
  • By entering the keyword, you will end up with a good list of expired domains and then use the filters to refine your search
  • The next step would be to check the different metrics of the domains by using Moz and Majestic SEO
  • If you like you can even Backorder the preferred domain which is going to expire soon so that you are the first one to buy that domain right when it expires
  • The best part of the Domain Nabber is that you can buy the domains at the cheapest price with new registration cost and no more fees
  • This service can get you some desired expired domains which you already know about but it might be tedious for you to check each and every domain manually for the preferred SEO metrics

Final Thought

My personal recommendation would be to use PBNLab as it is very simple to use and it’s totally worth the price you are going to pay and if you are in need of some really powerful expired domains for your PBN. It can find a huge volume of domains in very less time which is evident as I did a crawl a couple of weeks back and I found about 9,000 expired domains of good value. Though Expired Domains isn’t a bad choice if you are low on budget.

If you are interested in buying expired domains and are confused, feel free to drop your doubts in the comments section. I will help you to choose the best and make sure you are good to go and find some golden expired domains in your niche. Cheers!

What is Core Search Algorithm Update?

Many people were speculating the Google search update as a Penguin or Panda update which took place in couple of weeks at the start of January 2016, but it was confirmed later by Google that it is not more than just a ‘Core Search Algorithm Update’.

Several website owners noticed a huge shuffle in the rankings while entering the new year 2016 and the news which was really important was that Panda algorithm is no longer a standalone one but has merged into the core search algorithm. This core search algorithm update was launched on 10th January 2016 followed by a major update on 16th January 2016. It was aimed at a range of search quality parameters and affecting websites globally.

This update was a clear indication by Google that content quality is the most important thing on which you should focus immensely if you are a blog/website owner. Some of the data and webmaster reports convey that the ones who gained the most were those who had perfectly optimized the category URL’s and properly interlinked their website content.

If you would ask me, I would say tailor and curate your content in such a way that it is easy for the visitors to locate what they want to find.

Is PBN going to be dead after this update?

This is the question that is probably going through your mind if you are a online marketer who earns a living by creating websites focusing on different profitable keywords. Well, you would be surprised to know that the answer to this question is ‘NO’, though the conditions do apply.

A private blog network has been a very successful weapon and can help you quickly improve the rankings of any website. PBNs have proved their worth by increasing the rankings of websites in almost every niche and people are making $$ to $$$$$$ figures per month from their money sites.

It is believed by a lot of smart and successful SEO’s that PBNs will still be very effective in the coming years regardless of the core search algorithm update. Check some of the facts and figures which were recorded based on an experiment we conducted on a number of money sites. You will certainly feel the power of PBNs:

  • 74% of all sites that built a private blog network saw improved rankings



  • The % increase in rankings was on average 42% better (example a site currently ranked 14 will improve to Rank 10 on average)
  • Results were quick and very sustainable
  • Better the metrics of the expired domains used to build the PBN, better the search engine rankings
  • There are also some very successful and famous people who have ranked their money sites. Some to name are Tung Tran from com who sold his website for $10k after ranking it #1 in just 38 days.


  • Jon Haver from created which generated over $3k/month from search engine traffic. He has even shared some secret ideas on his website about how he used to pick relevant expired domains and redirected them to the individual posts. He claimed that this websites was highly promoted using a strong private blog network.


Tips to build a powerful and safe PBN today and in future

By now, I am pretty sure that you all are convinced that PBN is all time win strategy which you should follow if you are willing to rank on Google for your favorite keywords. PBN is not rocket science because hundreds of people today own PBNs ranging from a 5-site to 100 or even 1000-site PBNs and making tons of money using these.

What makes these people stand out? How do they build such a PBN which is risk-free and very powerful? Below are some of the super exciting tips from my side which can help you as well to build such PBNs which would help you to achieve sustainable rankings for your money site.

#1 Select relevant domains, register and host them privately

An expired domain must have good metrics with a good TF/CF and DA. Make sure that the count of the metrics is at least 15 and is relevant to your niche. It is strongly advised to register those domains with different accounts and host them on unique A or C class IP addresses which helps you not leave a footprint and stay safe from Google penalties.

#2 Avoid thin content and nurture your site regularly

There are two ways by which you can build content for your expired domain PBN site. One way is to create new blog posts which are relevant to the domain and the other way is to restore the content (text or images) that used to reside on the previous version of the website. It is a good practice though care needs to be taken as it might be possible that a new version of the old website may be existing.

Always keep the content on the website thick and relevant to the niche. It will help you to build authority for the PBN sites in the eyes of Google and the links from these domains will pass more juice to the main site eventually.

#3 Social signals and Link placement/velocity

It is a good idea to throw some social signals at the PBN sites as it wouldn’t look natural if one high authority websites are rebuilt and suddenly pointing to a random website. The last and the most important thing which I want you to take care of is the link placement or link velocity.

Make it a practice to use PBNs as a supplement and not rely totally on them. 80-90% of your links should come from internal pages like guest posts, business listings, branded properties, or niche blog/forum comments.



If the PBN links occupy 4-20% space on your overall link profile, then you are pretty safe and make sure you maintain good interval while adding links.

In this race of SEO if you (racer) drive too fast, you would be knocked down by Google (police). So the slow and steady wins the race here. If you have any queries or doubts, feel free to comment below and discuss, I will be happy to help you.

Private blog network security hardening guide for wordpress

When you own a website online, the worst part is the fear of it getting hacked by someone. WordPress websites are actually vulnerable to security attacks and are hacked a lot in the recent times. You might want to be curious to find out what exactly can make your sites loved by hackers if you own a huge PBN network and want them to be safe. A hacked website can be really bad for your business as well as for your readers today since a lot of people rely only on the online data.

According to statistics From 40,000+ WordPress Websites in Alexa Top 1 Million, more than 70% of WordPress installations are vulnerable to hacker attacks.



It is really important to make sure that your site isn’t hacked if your website contains a lot of data, some of which may be confidential as well. If the hackers can get access to a large user base it might be possible that they may harass them in some way or the other. So if you own a business website, a blog or a PBN for your client or your websites, it is advisable to have a secure circumference around all your websites to keep them safe.

Google had taken a serious action on all the .co & .cc hosts which were known as the free hosts and de-indexed almost all websites running on them. The main reason for this was because of a lot of spammy or low-quality sites were running on both of these hosts. Matt Cutts stated about this in a post on Google+ as well.

Root Possible Cause of your site being Hacked

There may be several reasons why and more importantly how your PBN site may get hacked when you are on WordPress. In this section, we will discuss some of the common reasons regarding which you can take precautions in order to keep your PBN sites secure from the hacker attacks.

Weak Login Details

Most of the experienced hackers know that the default username of WordPress website is admin when it is installed for the first time. It is very easy for them in order to crack further as it is quite obvious that the password would be predictable as well.

This could be a huge threat for your PBN security if you do not take it into consideration though it might seem a very minute issue to you.

Nulled Theme/Plugin/Script

There a lot of sources on the Internet from where you can download themes, plugins and free scripts which you seek because you don’t have enough funds to buy the premium ones. But you need to be careful here as they might be infected or contain malicious files which could hurt your site.

Weak Hosts

As we talked about .co & .cc at the start of the article and how Google slammed all the websites which were running on these hosts. Avoid hosting your PBN sites on those hosts who do not monitor their servers and don’t update/patch system on a regular basis.

You can even diagnose your website for checking the hacked status by checking the Google Webmasters account for any messages regarding the malicious behavior of the website. The visitors can usually see an image similar to the below one when a site is attacked by a hacker.


How to Prevent a Website from getting Hacked

There are several measures and tweaks which can implement in order to keep their WordPress site and improve their PBN security. Some of the best and easiest ways are listed below so make sure you go through each of them. Security breaches can be avoided easily by following the below methods, so let’s have a look at them now.

  1. Always update the themes and plugins used on your website to the latest version.
  2. Take regular backups of your databases and files on the site, store them somewhere else and not on the same server.
  3. Regularly scan your WordPress website using some plugins like WordFence, Bullet Proof Security plugin or Better WP security plugin.
  4. If you have a budget, try using a managed WP host that guarantees full security of your website (scans your installations and takes backups regularly)
  5. Use premium plugins which can take full backups of all your data and sends them to your preferred storage location.

Taking precautions and always keeping a check on your website can save you from all these headaches of being hacked or reviving your website from a hacker attack. It’s quite easy to follow the above-mentioned tweaks which you can easily implement and keep your PBN secure in the long run.

Waybackmachine and private blog network

Are you finding it hard to hire quality as well as affordable content writers for your PBN sites? Does managing your PBN sites worry you every now and then? Well, you have ended up at the right place as today we will be discussing how to use the WayBack machine for restoring the web pages of any website. You can rebuild the whole website by using this method and keep it fresh and updated using the old content which used to reside on the site.


A PBN site is usually an expired domain with some quality metrics like DA, PA, TF and CF. The most vital part of maintaining a private blog network is to regularly keep it updated so that it can pass the link juice to your money site as well as sustain the authority of the particular PBN domain.

You would be amazed to know that you can rebuild the whole website by using the WayBack Machine scraping method. You can even restore web pages using the Google’s cache, but once it has updated you wouldn’t be able to see the earlier versions of a specific page. WayBack Machine can be used to search for the previous versions of the website (or pages) and use them to rebuild the site.

How to Rebuild your Website using WayBack Machine

  • Navigate to the Internet Archive’s WayBack Machine website :
  • Enter the URL of the webpage you want to look for and Press Enter (eg:


  • Now you should be on the page showing a calendar where the years are near to the top of the page while the months of the corresponding year in the middle of the pagewayback3
  • Click on the blue bubbles you see on a particular date to check the snapshot or version of the web page on that day
  • You can check all the pages in the archive of any website by adding an asterisk right after the domain name (eg.*)


  • When you will be on any page, you could see the top WayBack machine navigation bar which you can close from the upper right corner close button
  • Right click or press Ctrl + U in Google Chrome to view the Page Source code and copy it to a HTML file on your server
  • Once you are done recreating the page, rename that file as the page name which needs to be replaced and you are done!

So this was the process of manually scraping the previous version of any website in order to rebuild it and use it as a part of your PBN. It’s a great method for recreating and keeping your PBN site fresh by using the same old content which is perfectly relevant to the domain.

However, the process can be really tedious if you are aiming to scrape more than 1 websites and if you own a large private blog network. There are some services which help you to deal with this process for a charge. Let’s have a look at two of the most popular used WayBack Machine website scraping services.

  • – Archive Scraper is a great service if you are looking to download the whole website and recreate it. You can scrape one website for $9.99 and also choose the Pro Plan which allows you to scrape unlimited websites in a month for $49.99. The process to download/scrape a website is very easy. You just need to enter the URL of the website and Search. Select the day you want to scrape this site from and click on Start finally. You will have to wait for an email containing a zip file of the scraped website. It makes take from few minutes to few hours depending on the queue and the size of the website you requested to scrape.




  • WayBack Downloader – This is another fantastic tool for downloading older versions of a website and rebuild it for your PBN. It would be really hard to download every page of the website individually along with the different files and images. WayBack Downloader makes it look very smooth for which you need to provide them the Wayback URL (eg.*/ and not the URL of the website only. They also provide an additional service to integrate the site with WordPress and make it even simpler for you, though they charge a $30 fee for this task. This service offers 1 site download for $15, 2-4 websites for $12.5/site and 5+ websites for $7.5/site.wayback6

Use WayBack Machine vs Hiring Content Writers

I am sure you would be wondering why should you use WayBack Machine over the content writers to produce content for the PBN site. Well,  it is not mandatory to use this method but this can be really helpful in some terms.

  1. Cost Effective – If you are hiring a content writer for $10/article, you can spend $9.99 to scrape the previous version of the website and use the content which is very relevant to the niche which will save you a lot of money in the long run.
  1. Feasible Option – It would be quite tough to mange a team of content writers if you own a large PBN of let’s say 50-100 websites (it may go up to 500-1000 sites). So using WayBack Machine here to scrape the old content would prove very efficient and time saving.
  1. SEO changes tracking – Using WayBack machine can help you in analyzing the website modifications that affected the traffic and even research the old links to the website you own now.

With this, we come to the end of our guide on how to use WayBack Machine to reengineer an expired domain and scrape the old content which used to reside on that particular website. I hope the process was pretty clear and you now have a clear vision about what to choose to keep your PBN’s updated regularly so that they hold the rankings of your money website.

SEO is an ever evolving branch and testing out new things can always help you so my recommendation is to keep on practicing new methods and record your results.

How to get cheap but decent article for pbn

Finding a good writer who can help you get done with a superb article in budget is a headache which most of the website owners have today. Getting high-quality articles written for an affordable price is one the pillars of my online success.

Having a website with powerful content can make Matt Cutts favor your website in the Google SERP’s without any excuses. In this article, I will share some of my measures and secrets which I use to analyze a writer and how he himself agrees to write a good HQ article for a cheap price.

What can you do to lower the price of the article?

Before hiring a writer and dealing with the price, make sure you follow the below steps which can really help you to lower the article price which you will be buying.

  1. Explain in detail: Try noting down what exactly you need from the writer who will be completing the article. The mindset of a write is that he will have to do extensive research about the particular topic which will consume a lot of his time and hence he charges you more. What I usually do is that I prepare a quick, straightforward and small outline for each article and hand it over to my writer. Now, since he knows what exactly needs to be done, the price would be much lower comparable.
  1. Time: Time becomes a very vital aspect when it comes to article writing. The writer may charge you high if time is a constraint so try giving a good amount of time to your writer to complete it.
  1. Stick to one writer: This might be a very good tip for you if you are looking to find a good high quality as well as affordable writer. It’s advisable to keep one writer happy who caters your needs and build a long-term relationship with him.

How you can get a Good Article for just $1?

My recipe is quite simple and unique which can help you all to get a good quality article in $1 only. These ideas have never been shared on the Internet and today I am sharing this with you because I know the pain to find a good writer who suits best for my budget.

Article writing is done best when it is not completed just for the sake of writing. A writer who understands what exactly the readers wants to know is a successful writer. Below are the steps which you can follow to get an article as cheap as $1.

There may be different choices like hiring Filipino writers or using TextBroker where a 4-star writer charges $20 for 500 words. I ended up in getting low-quality content from the first option and the second one seems quite expensive since I have about 50+ articles and it seems a risky investment.

  • Post on Job Boards: It is a good idea to post on the different job boards like Freelancer, Upwork or Fiverr and buy articles in bulk so that you get them at a cheaper rate. An example would be to post a job titled ‘Want 50 articles for my PBN’ and then post your budget. There are thousands of hidden faces who write well and can fulfil your demand at an affordable rate

You can create or use the below template while posting on a job board,

—- Article Writer Post —

I have a quick 10 article writing job if you are interested in getting some 5* feedback on your ODesk profile and potential long term work.

I will provide you with the article titles and would like you to research them and then write 500-word articles

  • Facebook Groups: This is a great way to find quality writers who can be really fruitful in the long-term. There are some quality SEO and marketplace groups on Facebook like The Proper PBN and PBN, SEO, IM marketplace where a lot of writers are looking to work for clients. You can post what you need and get a high quality writer at a good price by negotiating through direct communication
  • iWriter: The article on iWriter have great potential and choosing someone from here can be really helpful for you as well. They have different categories of writers and even a basic ‘Standard‘ category writer can be useful to you if you are looking PBN quality content at a very cheap rate. Keep in mind to provide a brief outline of each article so the person writing has a clear vision to proceed

Final Thought

I agree that finding a good article writer can be a tough task as even I, have come across dozens of writers but found out that only 1 or 2 are really good and worth the buck I am paying. Also, if you can’t realize that the writer you are using is producing good or bad quality article then it might be a waste of your hard-earned money.

It would not be hard if you keep in mind the detailed points that I have discussed in this post. Why? Because I have followed the same elements and have found some irreplaceable writers who provide me exactly what I need.

If you ask me which is the best methods out of the 3, I would say direct communication while talking to people on relevant Facebook groups has proven to be the most effective one and I would also recommend that to you all and hope you find out the writer who is made for you.

How I have 101 online stores by using private blog network

Today I am going to introduce you to a little trick on how to increase your revenue. For those who have online websites, you may already have your main web page for selling shoes, water pumps, pet stuff, etc. Then you could do SEO by building your own private blog network. Suppose you build your network of 100 IPs (100 domains or websites), that means you own 101 websites (100 + 1 main web page).

Have you ever noticed that you have online competitors selling the same thing as you do; these websites spread all over the Internet. As you may or may not know, these web pages belong to the same owner. Suppose that you sell a brand of shoes that your competitors also sell. They have 10 web pages. That means you virtually are selling against 10 other competitors in the online market.

Simply said, you have 101 websites, why don’t you make it your small virtual online shops? Then you will now own 101 online shops and that will also save you from having to rent space from brick and mortar shopping mall. The method is not very complicated. You only need to do websites and review your products. You tell people how good your products are, demonstrate to your customers how your products are used, and then leave your contact information.

Now this technique will certainly increase your sales channels and your sales revenues. But you should be careful for the following. If you ever come across my previous posts about private blog network, you may already knew that you should not leave any footprints or any information that are duplicated in all of your web pages. Google can detect these footprints and finds out that they belong to the same owner. By putting the same contact information, phone number, the shop name, you will leave the same footprints for Google. Of course, I will not recommend you to put lots of phone numbers as you would have 100 different numbers and that is not possible. What I suggest for you to do is very simple. You will turn your contact information into images. Design different styles of your image for contact information. Google cannot detect image information just yet. So it should be safe to use this method. One important thing is to change your file names for different images to further conceal your identity.

That’s it!

Backlinking for pbn – The best practice

This is a very common issue found when building private blog networks. How to put backlinks on private blog networks to get the best result? Today I want to tell you ways of placing links and their pros and cons, so you can decide where you will put your links.

There are three main parts for links to webpages

  1. Links from sidebar/blog roll/neighbor pages
  2. Links from website’s footer
  3. Links from blog posts

Links 1 and 2 is a site-wide link because they are setup once and will be shown on every page of your websites. Even though the number of exposure is high, the risk is that Google may consider them as spam links. As you set it up once and the links are shown on all of your 100 pages, there will be 100 backlinks for one page. If your web is not really popular, this way of placing links will have a bad effect for your website. You should be careful about putting backlinks in your private blog network. Do not put the same set of links into every of your pbn. Think about it, you make such perfect websites. You put different materials, different themes into your blog network. But your links are the same on your sidebar or footer sections. That is an obvious footprint.

The links number 3 are links that are placed within the article. It is recommended and popular way to put these links as they have more power than any other links on your web pages. However, you should be careful if you put links on your web posts. If you put links using only keyword anchor, it is possible that Google can detect your private blog network. Thus deindex them. (Actually, Google uses density of keyword anchor as one parameter to determine web spam). So my recommendation is to mix all of the 3 types of links as following.

  1. Use keyword as link anchor.
  2. Use sentences as link anchor.
  3. Use URL or brand or website name as link anchor.

What about the position and the number of links per post?

It depends. In general, you should not put more than 3 links per article. You should not link to the same web page. For links position, you should place it within the blog post or you may make it as references just like Wikipedia does.

That’s it for today. Hope it helps you to make great private blog network. ^^
