The days of spamming GSA, Scrapebox and Xrumer links at your website and ranking #1 are long gone. Google devalued those types of links when they introduced Panda and Penguin, which is why tools like SENuke, Article Marketing Robot and Ultimate Demon stopped working.
So what did SEOs do? They started buying up domains and building their own blog networks to get higher rankings. Most of these people (and agencies) used drop catching tools to bid on expiring domain names with “High Metrics” from GoDaddy auctions.
The strategy worked so well, the Google Webspam team responded by deindexing blog networks. But they didn't stop there, they did something really smart. To prevent SEOs from reusing deindexed domains they created a "Honeypot". Here's how it works:
There is only one way to build your PBN safely and that's to the check the history of each domain!
Let’s take this domain, for example. To an unsuspecting SEO, these metrics look pretty good! The problem is that most SEOs stop doing any more research at this point.
To make sure your PBN is not part of Google's honeypot, you should verify each domain's history using the Wayback Machine as pictured below.
This domain was a real business website from 2009 up until 2010 when it expired and was picked up by an SEO who took advantage of the domain’s power and trust. Everything looks fine until you click on the 2011 snapshot of the website history...
As you can see in the 2011 snapshot, this domain was turned into something completely different, a Japanese blog network website. This is one of the most common signs that a domain is part of Google's honeypot, but let’s keep digging…
Remember all of those exact match domains that SEOs ranked or built tier 2 links to with automated tools? You know, the ones with 100% commercial anchor text, like auto insurance or payday loans. To catch SEOs reusing spammy domains, Google created 3 more honeypots. Here's how they work:
To make sure your PBN is not part of Google's honeypot, you should verify each domain's backlink profile using Majestic. Shown below are the Anchor Text and Map reports for the example domain.
Domains with natural link profiles have a high percentage of brand and URL anchor text. As you can see, this domain's anchor text is overoptimized for "High Cost Per Click" credit card keywords causing a Penguin penalty.
Another warning sign that this example domain has an Unnatural Links penalty are the backlinks from China, Russia and Japan. It's also likely that many of the referring domains have a Disavow Tool penalty for selling links.
By now, hopefully you understand why you wouldn't want this example domain in your network. When your network has a ratio of too many bad domains to good domains two things happen. First, your money websites or your clients' websites gets penalized and second, your blog network gets deindexed.
This is exactly what happened to the unsuspecting SEO who registered our example domain that Google deindexed, penalized and added to their honeypot in 2013. Here's a screenshot of the DNS History:
Now, you see the genius behind what Google did. Almost every SEO unknowingly buys a bad domain at some point in time. This costly mistake can easily happen to anyone.
To make sure your PBN is safe, we need to do a history and backlink profile check on the domains in your network. Let’s begin by visiting Majestic.com and using the Majestic Fresh Index. Type in your domain name and check the "Use Fresh Index" option underneath. To see if your domain has Trust Flow, select "URL" from the dropdown list.
Now, let’s look at the backlink profile. From the dropdown list, change "URL" to "Root Domain" then check the "Anchor Text" and "Map" tabs. This time take a look at both the "Fresh Index" and "Historic Index" options.
Once you’re done checking on Majestic, it's time to go to another helpful tool called the Wayback Machine found at Archive.org/web. Type in your domain and look at the history for any signs of abuse/spam.
If you’re having an “Oh, Crap!” moment, then you probably just realized you’ve been buying the wrong domains all along. I know how it feels. HORRIBLE. You know your private blog network is a ticking time bomb and your revenue or clients' revenue is about to take a nose dive. The good news is: we’ve got your back.
Step #1: To avoid total annihilation of your blog network, the only thing you can do is remove the bad domains. Sometimes, not even this is enough.
Step #2: Build a new, clean network with our handpicked, Google-safe domain names.
Here are just a few testimonials from customers that were in your shoes:
We built an awesome arsenal of tools for finding domains that have been expired, dropped or deleted by failed businesses, bloggers and organizations that ONLY WE have access to. These are domains that for some reason, the previous owner just didn’t renew.
Out of every 1000 domains, only 1 passes our full inspection. Why? As more domains get deindexed and penalized, the number of Google-safe domains gets smaller every day. It's rare to find a domain that has both a clean history in the Wayback Machine and a spam-free backlink profile in Majestic.
This is a very time consuming process, which is why we had to master it. How long did it take you to check each domain in your network? I bet you didn’t even finish halfway through the list. Am I right?
Imagine this process being done for you, totally hands-free. This is how the top SEOs rank their websites, by using service providers that have an edge that no one else has.
Here’s some feedback from clients that realized we were the answer to their SEO needs:
What you’ll receive is short and simple. You’ll get high quality domains with at least a Trust Flow 15+ on the homepage and Page Authority of 20+. Whether you want to rank locally or globally, these are the domains you want to have in your network.
You might think that you’ve been buying similar domains or even ones with higher metrics, but don’t forget what you just learned. Most of those domains are likely part of Google's honeypot, which means they will eventually get your sites penalized.
Every niche is different with varying degrees of keyword competition. We've created an estimate for you based on our own experiences and what has gotten results for our customers.
For example, if your main keyword has medium competition then it may need 25 domains to rank. Buy 5 to 10 domain each month and dripfeed the links to avoid raising any red flags.
If your site is new, then buying 5 domains each month is the best way to go. It usually takes about 3 months for a brand new website to have the authority and trust necessary to rank. More established sites with good link profiles can see results in 3-4 weeks or less.
After I buy, what happens next? Most service providers leave a footprint when they register domains in their account and then transfer them to their customers. Even worse, some brokers share their list of domains in Google Docs and mail their reports through Gmail. That's just plain stupid. We all know Google uses this data to detect PBNs.
To keep your PBN truly private, we deliver your report containing a list of domains to register inside of our secure customer dashboard. Then, you register the domains at your preferred registrar.
