PBN (Private Blog Networks) | Are They Worth Building in 2019?

What Is A PBN Or A PBN Site? What Is A WBN Site?

Using PBN Links Or WBN To Build Authority.

Buying PBN Links. Why You Shouldn’t Buy Links At All.

Building Quality SEO Backlinks In 2019.

Is SEO Worth It?

Updated August 14, 2019
The short answer is no. A PBN requires a serious amount of time and money. You also take the ultimate risk of being deindexed or receiving a manual penalty from Google. Now let’s explain why this is a bad choice.
 
Private blogging networks are purchasing expired domains, relevant to your content. You will spend hours on an expired domain site. Comparing domain authority, trust flow, checking for spamdexing. Only to find a few if any expired domains which are worthy of purchasing.
 
Once you’ve purchased your domain, you will want to buy an SSL. Then create a website (generally on a website managed hosting platform). Create the content you want others to read, add contextual links back to your main website. Then you will receive credit for one single backlink.
 
Every time you publish new content to your main website, you will need to create a post on each of your PBN’s. This will create another link back to your main website. With content spinners, you will be able to shortcut the time and energy for this process, right? Wrong. Content spinners generally produce very low quality if even readable content. This could flag search engines to your shortcuts, and breach of their terms of service. Don’t take our word for it. Try out the link above for free content spinning. Copy and paste some copied text from an article, and give it a whirl.

What Is A PBN Or A PBN Site? What Is A Web 2.0 Site?

 
Let’s define what a PBN is, and also the cheaper method of creating a similar solution, which is a Web 2.0.
 
A private blogging network, is a process of buying expired domains with authority. Then you create a website with those expired domains. Once you create the website, you place content onto the site. Then, you create contextual links back to your main website. Sometimes, grey hat SEO’ers will create a “walled garden”. A walled garden links all their websites in their PBN together, then back to the main website. This is a quick way to signal search engines to your efforts at gaming the system. This could result in deindexing or a manual penalty.
 
So, what’s a Web 2.0?
 
We are seeing a tremendous amount of Web 2.0’s used currently, as a cheaper way to create the same end result. A Web 2.0 is a web blogging network, which is like a PBN. Web 2.0’s use free blogging platforms such as WordPress, Weebly, Blogger, or many others, to do the same task as a PBN.
 
Both need similar time and effort, in posting content and creating backlinks. We see a lot of large companies using Web 2.0’s currently, which is quite surprising to us. With an algorithm change from Google, these large companies could receive a penalty. Imagine the CEO of a company, explaining to investors their website is deindexed?

Using PBN Links Or Web 2.0’s To Build Authority.

 
There are some companies who will use PBN links or Web 2.0’s to build authority for ranking. It’s an easy way to give yourself a leg up amongst your competitors to organic ranking. Let’s assume you want to use this approach. Let’s look at the steps, and how to achieve the results they are getting from their efforts, using Web 2.0’s as the example:
1. Set up many (10?) Web 2.0’s. Keep track of the name & login information for each blog you create. Each blog should use a different email address for login purposes. Also, use a fictitious name for the authors, which do not match one another.
2. For each article you write on your main website, you will create an article for each one of your Web 2.0 blogs. They should contain no less than 300 words each.
3. To pass Google’s tests, you will also need to create unique articles on your separate blogs. You shouldn’t create links back to your website from the unique articles.
4. Within your articles, you will want to create contextual links to other authoritative sources.
5. If we assume you are using 10 blogging sites, and you publish one new article on your main website per week, use a 3:1 ratio. What we mean, is you will create 30 new 300 word articles per week, besides your main site content.
 
Will this build authority? It will. Without a doubt. For keywords which need 10 or less backlinks to rank organically on page 1, you will succeed. For keyword phrases requiring more than 10 backlinks to rank on page 1, you will have a pretty good start.
Is SEO Worth It?
 
You bet. SEO or search engine optimization, is what makes content rank organically. The amount of money spent on SEO, is generally less than advertising. SEO creates longevity.
 
If we compare SEO efforts & costs, we always point to the obvious elephant in the room, which is staying power. If you pay for placement, your ranking stops when you turn your ad off. With SEO, the benefits stay for an indefinite period of time.
 
If you paid an SEO company to create backlinks to a single article, your website benefits. The article receives the direct benefit. If you hired them to promote a single article, the value continues beyond that single project.

What Does SEO Stand For? SEO Terms And Meanings

SEO stands for “Search Engine Optimisation“. SEO is how people will find your content and website on the internet. Some people find SEO to be hard, but it isn’t. Once you understand SEO, it’s not as scary as you might think.

Let’s Define SEO:

 
What does SEO stand for? “SEO” is short for Search Engine Optimization. It is also a tool companies use to drive traffic to their website. Traffic is what we all want for our websites, correct?
 
According to Wikipedia. SEO “is the process of affecting the online visibility of a website’s unpaid results. This is often referred to as “natural”, “organic”, or “earned” results.”
 
What does that mean? It means that effort needs to happen, to make one website rank better than another website in search. The internet is getting more and more competitive every day. Writing a piece of content and expecting it to rank on it’s own, is a thing of the past.
 
By creating better content, and using great principles, we can rank better. Why? Because search engines want to provide the best content.

What Are The Different Types Of SEO? What It Means.

 
There are two different types of search engine optimization, being “On Page SEO” and “Off Page SEO”. We will explain each type, to help understand the importance of both.
 
On Page SEO On page SEO relates to how your content relates to other content on your website. Internal linking between pages, allows us to build authority for our entire website. Also, using external links to outside content, allows us to build credibility.
 
Off Page SEO Off page SEO refers to the efforts of trying to get others to feel your content is valuable. Sharing content on social media, is one method of off page SEO. It is also the most popular, because anyone can share content links. The second method is to get other websites to link to your content. When websites link to your content, search engines determine your content is valuable. We call this “outreach”. Outreach is when we reach out to other websites, to create a “dofollow backlink” to our content. Sometimes, this may happen without effort. Most of the time, we need to reach out to other webmasters to create this opportunity.
 
Outside of the two different types of SEO, there are many other aspects of what it means. By using the best principles, SEO drives traffic to a website. With the added traffic, opportunity to gain new customers happens, by creating solutions. By gaining new customers, more revenue happens. We all want more customers, right?
 
According to Wikipedia. SEO “is the process of affecting the online visibility of a website’s unpaid results. This is often referred to as “natural”, “organic”, or “earned” results.”
 
What does that mean? It means that effort needs to happen, to make one website rank better than another website in search. The internet is getting more and more competitive every day. Writing a piece of content and expecting it to rank on it’s own, is a thing of the past.
 
By creating better content, and using great principles, we can rank better. Why? Because search engines want to provide the best content.

Let’s Look At Some SEO Tips.

What does SEO stand for, and what are some tips to maximize your website?

  1. The very first tip we want to share is something we developed in house at GingerHippo, called the “SEO Triangle of Trust”. The triangle of trust refers to the 3 main areas of SEO, being content, traffic, and backlinks.
  2. While most websites have plenty of content, they lack the backlinks to drive traffic. Some websites have backlinks, but they aren’t pointing to relevant content. Writing content using the best format, can be a tremendous tool to gain organic rankings. H-tags, meta descriptions, titles, and navigation are very important. Using a table of contents like we did in this article, can help search engines make best sense of your content.
  3. Contextual links are very important to building your authority and ranking. Internal links and external links should use context relevant to your sources.
  4. Use “dofollow links” for outgoing links in your content. After all, we want dofollow backlinks from our sources, right?

Search Engine Optimization “SEO” Best Practices.

 
What does SEO stand for, in relationship to best practices?
1. Always use white hat methods in SEO. “White Hat” refers to using practices which meet a search engine’s terms of service. This means that you are following the rules. “Black Hat” SEO attempts to improve rankings in ways search engines don’t approve of. This usually involves deception.
2. Make sure people can read your content. Writing content people understand, is a key to content consumption. We recommend using a free tool “Hemingway Editor” to check your content. We also recommend writing content to a 6th grade reading level or lower.
3. Your content should add value to the reader, by solving a problem. Finding solutions to a reader’s problems, will ensure people want to read what you write.
4. Share your content on all social media platforms. We don’t get to decide which platform people use to find answers. Sharing content to all platforms, allows us to find people who are looking for our content.
5. Create unique visuals for your content. People are very visual. By creating visuals, other writer’s may use your visuals for their articles. When they give your visuals source credit, you will receive a link back to your website.
6. Start a list to add to, when other websites give you a backlink to your content. Reaching out to these websites for future content, can be very valuable.

SEO Terms And Meanings

 
What does SEO stand for, in relationship to industry meanings? Here is a list of SEO terms and their meanings, for referencing what you hear from others.
 
301 or 301 redirect – When a URL points to a different URL. This can be useful for canonical issues. 301’s are permanent redirects.
 
302 or 302 redirect – When a URL points to a different URL, but isn’t permanent.
 
404 or 404 page not found – When someone clicks on a URL that doesn’t exist. A 404 occurs when an old URL isn’t redirected to a new URL.
 
Adwords – Google’s advertising platform. Other terms used may include CPC (cost per click), CPM (cost per thousand impressions), or PPC (pay per click).
 
Affiliate Marketing – Affiliate marketers, practices, and websites sell products from other companies. Sales produce a commission or fee.
 
Algorithm – A mathematical program search engines use. Algorithms determine which pages are best to suggest for a given search query.
 
Alt Text – A description of a graphic, or image. Alt text generally isn’t displayed to a user. Alt text is important because search engines can’t tell one picture from another. Alt text is best used to give an accurate description of the associated picture. Web browsers for visual impaired users, use alt text to define the content to their user.
 
Analytics – A program which assists in analyzing data about website usage.
 
Anchor Text – The user visible text of a link. Anchor text indicates relevancy of a referring website.
 
Authority – Authority is sometimes called “link juice”. It is the amount of trust a website has for a search query. Authority derives it’s value from related incoming links, from other authoritative sites.
 
B2B – Business to Business.
 
B2C – Business to Consumer.
 
Backlink (incoming link) – Any link into a page or website from other websites. Backlinks are always either “dofollow” or “nofollow”.
 
Black Hat – Search engine optimization tactics that don’t follow Google Webmaster Guidelines.
 
Blog – A website page with content presented in a chronological series. Most blogs use a content management system. CMS platforms allow content creation, without needing the ability to write code. Content creators for blogs, are often referred to as “bloggers”.
 
Bot (robot, spider, crawler) – A program search engines use, which indexes web content. Bots are also used in black hat SEO to scrape the internet for content. The scraped content is often used by spammers for exploitation.
 
Bounce Rate – The percentage of users who enter a site and then leave it without viewing any other pages.
 
Bread Crumbs – A defined navigation area above the main content. Bread crumbs allow users to know where they are on a website. They also allow quick navigation to categorical pages.
 
Canonical Issues (duplicate content) – When content duplicates existing content on a website. By creating “noindex” meta tags, canonical data instructs bots which content is important. This is sometimes called “cornerstone content”.
 
Cloak or Cloaking – Showing search engines a different version of content, than what a human user sees. When search engines catch cloaking, they are often banned.
 
CMS (Content Management System) – Website platforms that allow content writing. CMS platforms do not need coding skills to write content. WordPress, Joomla, Wix, and Webflow, are examples of CMS platforms.
 
Comment Spam – Posting blog comments to create a backlink to a different website.
 
Content (text, copy) – The part of a website that creates value to a visitor or reader. Content is the greatest factor for search engines, when determining search engine rankings.
 
Conversion (goal) – Completing a quantifiable goal on a website. Converting a visitor into making a decision, or taking further action.
 
Conversion Rate – Percentage of users who convert.
 
CPC (Cost Per Click) – How much a company pays an advertiser to send a single visitor to their website. This is also called direct advertising.
 
CPM (Cost Per Thousand impressions) – How much a company pays an advertiser for an ad. This is also called passive advertising. A company pays the advertiser, based on each block of 1,000 displays.
 
Crawl or Crawler (bot, spider) – When a search engine crawls a website. Using link data, the bot determines relevancy of content.
 
Directory – A site devoted to directory pages. The Yahoo directory is an example. A lot of SEO companies will create links to directory sites, for off page SEO. Directory backlinks carry less authority than contextual backlinks.
 
Dofollow – Instructing search engines to pass authority from your page, to your link source.
 
Duplicate Content – Content that relates with other existing content on a website. Duplicate content is often ignored by search engines.
 
eCommerce Site – A website devoted to retail sales.
 
Feeds – Content delivered from other sources. Feeds serve syndicated content. Aggregators use feeds to bring many different sources of content to a single place or page.
 
Frames or Framing – A design which uses two or more pieces of content in a viewing area. Bots ignore framed content, because each frame is showing two or more types of content. Users do not like framed content, because they can’t see the entire page.
 
Gateway Page (doorway page) – A website page that collects traffic, and sends it to another website. Gateway pages use practices like cloaking, which search engines frown upon.
 
Google Bowling – Trying to lower a sites rank by sending it links from bad sources.
 
Google Dance – The change in SERPs caused by an update of the Google algorithm.
 
Google Juice (trust, authority, Pagerank) – Trust from Google. Google Juice or “link juice” flows through outgoing links to other pages.
