PBNs, or Private Blog Networks, a major source of revenue for many individuals. However, considering the fact that Google isn’t too fond of, and ban, them, setting up a successful network can not only be tricky but also time-consuming.
If you’re going to put time and effort into such a venture, then at the very least you should be prepared with the right knowledge to get things running. Below are some tips on how you can properly set up a PBN site.
Content is King
You’ll need to decide what type of content you’ll be putting on your site. Keep diversifying based on your sites and use different content formats. You also have to be willing to put up original and unique content on each of your sites. The more you rehash old content, the more likely your activity is to be detected. People with a budget usually hire content writers at minimum wage and get them to produce original content. Even if you opt for this, you’ll still need to manage all your content and publish in a structured, yet natural, manner. Set different publishing days for each of your PBN sites and try to include visual media as well to make the content seem a little livelier. The more natural and organic your publishing is, the less likely you are to be detected.
Registering a Domain
While the process of registering a domain is simple, you’ll still need to be subtle about it. Try to use a different domain registrar for each of your sites. If you look hard enough, you’ll end up finding some discounts in the process as well. Don’t buy all your domains on the same day either. Buy two in one week then a few more the next and so on. “Buying in bulk” is one of the biggest mistakes people make and you’re going to end up being banned just because you couldn’t wait a few days in between.
You’ll also be better off using different TLD domains for your network. Have one site on a “.org” domain and the other on the “.net” domain. Considering there’s more than enough domains, you can have fun and play around with the name as well.
Just as with the domain, you should try using more than one hosting provider or at the very least a provider who can host PBNs successfully. You should also focus on using providers that offer an easy management system as that will play a huge part in setting up a proper PBN site. The less time you spend on managing, the more you can focus on creating and publishing original content. Some hosting providers even offer management in their bundles leaving you with enough time to focus on the more important things. With today’s competition, finding affordable hosting for PBNs that offers all of this shouldn’t be an issue.
If you follow the above, you’ll be on your way to having a PBN that will not only work but also last you for a while!
