What are PBN sites? (See the list of example websites)

May 26, 2023

May 26, 2023 If you are looking for PBN sites, you probably want to see some examples to learn how to build them to get backlinks. In this guide you will get all the explanation and at the end you will see the list of the best PBN sites. Imagine this. You are the owner of a car manufacturing company. But you also own material and parts supplier companies. And all your companies work with each other. And they ensure that your car manufacturing company makes a profit. Does it sound illegal? No, it’s not like that. This is how private blog networks or PBN sites work. You need backlinks to get better search engine rankings. You can request this from other webmasters. But it takes too much time, money and effort. And you still might not succeed. But if you build your own network of private blogs, you will get backlinks faster. You can use the sites in your PBN to send link juice to your primary site, which is called the money site. Image from web public domain. Use? You decide the keywords to use for backlinks. You decide the quality of the content that leads to your website for money. It’s only fair when your PBN sites contain valuable content. If you’re spamming your audience with keyword-laden content, you’re doing it wrong. So what exactly are PBN sites? Just a bunch of seemingly unrelated websites. Websites that share link juice with your site for money. Websites that offer readers informative and valuable content. They focus on the word seemingly here. All PBN sites are owned and operated by one person. Or one group of people. Why? But isn’t that illegal? Yes. We’ve said this before. And they would say it as many times as necessary for everyone to understand this. Google is not a government. Of course, he is the biggest player on the market. But Google’s webmaster guidelines don’t make things illegal. Other SEOs may avoid commenting on this topic. Or they might immediately tell you to stay away from PBN sites. But I won’t do that. In fact, we’re just telling you to play the game by Google’s rules (or guidelines, if you prefer.) One of the primary guidelines issued by Google is: provide value to your reader. So just do it. Make sure your PBN sites have content worth reading. What if my PBN sites get penalized? Are you using copied or spun content? If so, we would personally like to report your site to Google. You’re trashing the web. But if you are offering original and valuable content through your PBN sites, you are not wrong. Additionally, if you use the right fingerprint masking techniques, your websites will never be found. And they will never be punished. Monopolistic tendencies abound in the world. People like to be in control. So does Google. And people, like us, who build and use PBN sites. Google is right to control the lion’s share of the market. And yet, we think we’re wrong when we try to control what and how links flow to our site. We don’t see any logic in this. We believe that by now you have a good idea about PBN sites and allow us to show you some examples of PBN websites that are all hosted through SeekaPanel using multiple IP addresses.
