What you need for a successful PBN Network for SEO:
- Unique Blog Theme
Choose a theme that is appropriate for the blog and its audience. If the blog has a news format, select a News theme that allows you to show different posts in different categories on the home page. Try to create high-quality and informative content, rather than just creating backlinks, which devalues rather than enhances the blog.
- Custom Logo Design
A logo highlights your brand. Try to create an individual logo for each private blogs to give it a recognizable character and that visitors immediately know what this is all about. Use design tools such as Canva for this purpose and make them all unique.
- High-quality Content
Invest time and money in the content of your blogs to avoid footprints. If you publish similar or the same content and always use the same keywords to create backlinks and stuff keywords, search engines will negatively rate your websites with lower domain authority and low ranks. Avoid linking PBN websites directly, especially if you have a small PBN network.
- Basic Website Pages
There are some basic pages that your website should be equipped with, such as an “about” page with about 400-500 words to explain to the visitor the purpose of the website. Change the title to “About us” or “Who we are” etc. on your different blogs. A contact page with some contact details to show authenticity. And other sites such as privacy pages, terms and conditions, disclaimer and more should be added.
- Unique IP Address
This is the basic concept of building a PBN without leaving a footprint. If all your blogs are hosted at the same IP address, then it’s a hint that they all belong to the same network or owner. Individual IP addresses for the blogs in your network present differences for search engine bots so they do not link them.
- Private Name Server
The private name server configuration is important so that all websites in your network vary in their name server details for the domain names. For example, if your domain name is abc.com, your private name server is ns1.abc.com & ns2.abc.com. However, it is best to vary names for each domain and not disclose the details of the hosting provider.
- Different Server Locations
This is an optional requirement to show more variation if you have more than 100 domains in your PBN network. If the IP files assigned to your sites belong to the same location, this can act as a footprint. If you have more than 100 domains on your network, you can select a PBN hosting provider like SeekaHost that can display variations in IP sites and server locations.
- Easy to use Blog Hosting Control Panel
Imagine managing and regularly tracking 100s of blogs in several dashboards. You’d be a busy person. At SeekaHost the expert team have tested various PBN Hosting Control Panels and have found that they are not very user-friendly, especially for PBN owners with multiple websites. That’s why they have developed and designed a unique blog hosting manager tool that allows its users to host all their private blogs with the best PBN Hosting inside one dashboard that allows them to
- have all their WP sites in one overview
- track all their WP sites via the panel by connecting tracking tools like Google Analytics and Clicky.
- purchase, cancel, upgrade or downgrade their hosting plans at any time inside the app
- download backups of all their hosted sites at any time through the panel
- move, add or remove sites quickly and flexibly
- customize their name servers
- categorise all your hosted sites
You can see how it looks and works in this short explainer video:
Once you have checked all these points for your private blogs, then you can move on to using them for SEO.
How to use Private Blog Networks for SEO in 2021?
Build PBNs the right way for the best SEO Results
We advise people to build real and authentic WordPress blogs that provide value to the readers and not worry about blocking bots or other practices that go against search engine guidelines.
WordPress is the most popular CMS in the world and it is very good for SEO purposes as it allows users to utilize SEO plugins like Yoast SEO or All in One SEO to improve each blog’s SEO performance on search engines. This is why at SeekaHost, besides PBN hosting we offer managed WordPress Hosting as another option in the SeekaHost App, which will provide users with many preconfigured functions like automated backups, added plugins and much more.
Included in both PBN Hosting and WP Hosting are unique IPs and C Class IPs for your blogs to act as unique blogs owned by multiple owners. That’s how you should create a blog network that will generate several SEO benefits.
If the blogs are well built and follow the search engine guidelines, your blogs are safe and likely to thrive.
Do not install many plugins to block bots unless you want to stop your competitors fishing for where the links come from.
I own over 800 blogs, and all are built on WordPress and on unique IPs and domains are registered by many people. So, there aren’t any issues.
All the blogs are well maintained and many of them are getting daily enquiries for guest posting to add to their content each month. All these private blogs are managed, audited and regularly maintained by my teams.
Have a look at the UK Business Blog https://business.clickdo.co.uk/ and which has gained a DA of 48 and monthly visitors of around 5k.
As you can see, it has a unique theme and features different related categories and list posts. The logo is branded and it is regularly updated with fresh and trendy content targeting a business audience. It features a contact and about page and visitors can also find it on FB or Twitter.
You can see how good the blogs must be built and that’s how we build PBNs that meet search engine guidelines for the best SEO outcomes when building backlinks.
Our goal is to only create private blogs that will add value to the web and readers.
We never build PBNs that are for the sake of link building without a purpose.
You can check out some of our other PBNs below and we urge you to compare them and see for yourself how we make them unique and valuable:
All these blogs are related to blogging, online businesses and also wider general topics and can therefore be utilized in various ways for SEO like link exchanges where relevant, guest posts to promote certain services etc. They can also be used for guest posting, which is an additional benefit as this also helps with getting links to other authority websites outside of your PBN.
What’s important when building PBNs?
Domains should be registered by multiple people or with different names. So, they act as blogs owned by different owners and not by the same person.
- Host each blog on unique IPs. SeekaHost offers A Class, B Class and C Class IPs for PBN hosting.
- Publish well written, high-quality unique content
- Follow the SEO rules and search engine guidelines when building the blogs
- Do some internal linking that adds value to the content with useful and relevant anchors
- Use customized images and media on your blogs
- Build them as authentic blogs and add value to the web users
- Publish each week or at least monthly on your blogs and update the content
If you follow these 7 steps I’ve mentioned your blogs should be performing well on search engines and provide a good SEO boost.
But keep in mind, when placing contextual links on the blogs. Do not plug keyword-rich anchors and link to a ton of money sites without relevancy.
Most people get their PBNs power diluted or reduced by search engines due to wrong outbound links. That’s a major case I’ve seen.
People just link from PBNs left and right with direct anchors and it looks like selling links without any relevancy.
PBNs are no different to a normal blog, but they have to be built and managed professionally.
Private Blog Network Building Services
For some this may be quite a difficult task. After all, building successful PBNs is a full-time job that usually takes a whole team to work. And knowing and applying SEO strategies and techniques is another ball game, which is obviously learnable with SEO training courses, but very time-consuming.
SeekaHost can help out with this problem. We offer our support with PBN setups and charge a fee of £50 per PBN to be setup professionally with top on-page SEO, including 5 well-written articles with optimised images, internal linking and SEO friendly content. Complete on-page SEO will be done as shown the online SEO expert course to ensure, just like the UK Business Blog, the WP blog will rank well on search engines for selected keywords.
