Private Blog Networks (PBN) are web sites that allow bloggers to sell or promote their own products or services and build a customer base as well. They are becoming a popular choice among affiliate marketers.
But don’t go completely mad, there are some dangers in using PBNs that you need to be aware of if you are going to use them for SEO purposes. Let’s talk about these and how to avoid being scammed!
If you’re not sure about whether or not you should use a private blog network for your SEO, it might be best to test it out first. There are some sites that offer you the ability to sign up for free and test their system for a week or two before you pay anything.
There are a lot of great web sites out there that offer free trials for just a few days. And you can get tips on how to use PBNs effectively, so if you are unsure what to expect, this may be a good way to start.
However, if you feel that you are ready to buy a private blog network, then you should do some homework. In this article I want to discuss how to avoid scams on PBNs.
Backlinks are critical for your website to rank high in search engines. But how can you tell which ones are quality? The most important thing to remember is that they shouldn’t all be coming from the same people.
This isn’t a hard rule, but we all know that there are some link farms out there. These are sites where anyone can join, register a domain name, and then sell all kinds of link building products.
While there are no true black hat SEO companies out there, there are probably dozens of link farms out there with hundreds of links on their site. By learning how to identify these, you can help keep your website free from bad links.
Backlinks aren’t just for ranking. A link from the social bookmarking site del.icio.us, for example, can also help your site rank well. So before you buy a PBN, make sure you know the value of backlinks.
The other thing to remember about PBNs is that search engine optimization is an important aspect of them. One thing that should be pointed out is that PBNs like Pay Per Click campaigns do work, but in a different way than link exchanges or directory submissions.
Link exchanges (often referred to as link farming) allow a search engine to automatically index your website. It’s considered a huge plus for your website and adds SERP placement to your site. And directories are a great way to help with local SEO.
