Been doing a lot of FB marketing lately but thinking of spending more time on SEO – I haven’t been burned by any of the "black & white animals" like others (yet!), so still have enough motivation to give SEO a shot
Since it’s been a while, what do folks think about PBNs and their effectiveness in today’s SEO world? I’d be ranking sites in Europe if that makes a difference. Also, what are some good places to get expired domains for German sites (assuming ".de" domains are the way to go to rank a site in that country?)
I wouldn’t waste time on something so unstable like SEO results.
I’m in SEO for over 10 years and the fact I joined this forum a month ago says it all 🙂
Not sure about the PBNs, I’m wondering that as well, also looking forward to someone having info on that.
On the expired domain names: you can bid on quarantine .de domains through these dropcatching services: dropcatcher.de and domainorder.nl Good luck!
PBN works well. When you buy a domain for a pbn check their link history using ahrefs. You don’t want some spammed chinese links domain. Also using a PBN will make you safer in your fight with google animals. Seo it’s not that unstable , you need quality links and good content. I wasn’t hit in the last year by google updates and managed to bank around 100 k in profits from seo.
PBNs can be good, if you have got quite a high budget and you are building your own. It is important to not have ANY footprints that might catch the PBN out, this includes, theme similarities, set up, post frequency, hosting, IPs, the list is endless. If you are prepared to go for it it can be worth it, just make sure not to share that PBN with anyone once you have it set up.
Good info guys, thanks. I’ve done a good amount of research, mostly coming from viperchill (who also posted here a few months back). So yeah, aware that it costs a bit upfront, also using different hosts, IPs etc.
I’m glad folks are still seeing success with PBN’s, that was my main concern. Re: my question for country specific PBNs, should I only focus on building out .de domains? Maybe good .de domains are even easier to get since there’s less competition than for dotcoms?
