By Fernando Raymond | November 11, 2019
The SEO industry has been using PBNs for almost a decade now and some of you are still looking at how to build a PBN.
I’ve shown the steps to build a private blog network in our Facebook group, however, I feel still the newcomers to the SEO industry struggling with how to start a PBN.
You can watch the below video to see how we used to build PBNs at our SEO agency back in 2015-16
PBNs built that way worked great and still works, however in this guide I want to show you how to build a PBN with the concept of going public.
When you build a PBN the way I will show you, there are no worries for deindexation, and I bet the SEO power is huge.
We’ve built so many PBNs this way and it works so well to rank and bank.
Check these sites first to get an idea of how a well-built PBN looks like:
I bet you expected to see such level PBNs. I call them blogs that are public for guest posting services and make money online blogging.
You cannot build blogs privately and try to hide from search engines if you wish to rank on them. However, you can publish the blogs in a manner they are acting as privately owned and hosted by many people on the web.
What is a PBN?
A PBN is a private blog network that hides their hosting IPs so no one can guess it’s owned by one owner.
By using whois guard and unique IP addresses a blog can be hosted to look like it’s owned by a unique person.
Why do you host PBNs on unique IPs?
Because then search engines like Google or competitors can’t quickly pick it’s owned by one/same person who is using it to manipulate SEO activities.
Let me tell you something about my personal experience.
At ClickDo we have registered thousands of domains for our own blogs and clients. Every blog is registered by ClickDo and shows that they are owned by ClickDo.
I’ve tested it if that matters when it comes to building blogs and linking from those blogs to same money site, I wouldn’t have done it. To be honest, nothing happens when you build authentic blogs to support the web.
But if you are worried use whois guard to be on the safe side. You can get it when registering an expired domain name at SeekaHost.
If you build the blogs to look real and publish good content that will not save yours from any horror.
Should you use unique IPs to host expired domains and build PBNs?
YES. Because this is good to keep diversity and it shows that each domain is hosted on a unique IP and referring domain profile looks great.
Because search engine like Google may not like to see all domains that link to a money site are hosted in the same neighbourhood. At least as of now, that’s what we can say and following that will save your PBNs.
That’s why pioneers in the SEO industry use the multiple IP SEO hosting and PBN hosting solutions from SeekaHost.
