Should You Buy PBN Backlinks Cheap?

PBN Backlinks. Usually, the words "cheap" and "fast" go hand in hand for a track to a disaster. For link building services that sell cheap links, these help them sustain their cash cow. For individual webmasters, the act of building dozens of websites and maintaining them is time consuming. 

What Are PBN Backlinks? 

Exactly what is a PBN backlink? PBN stands for "private blog network." 

Essentially, someone will go out and buy a whole bunch of expired domains. That person will then write some generic, boilerplate content and then link the sites together. Then, they will link the website to the one that they want to rank. Here is a picture of what a PBN looks like.


What happens when you buy cheap PBN backlinks? 

Google is smart. If you are an individual webmaster maintaining a PBN, They don't tell us how they find PBNs, but it's likely one or several of these signals:

  • The websites have the same technical footprint (i.e. they all use the same CMS, design, etc.)
  • They use the same technological infrastructure (i.e. they have similar IP addresses).
  • They often use the same code. 
  • All the websites were expired domains at one point. 

Here is what happens if you are mass producing PBNs. 

To overcome this, you will have to physically take down the websites OR do a disavow. Unfortunately, it takes a LOT of time to come back from a manual penalty. Even if you take down the links, you're going to have some problems recovering the traffic. 

If you are using a backlinking service, they may be using PBN links to sustain their insatiable demand. You are probably not paying $150 per pop at a scale large enough to trigger a manual penalty, but one bad link might trigger a penalty.
