Here’s a quick trick to check the power of a backlink from a PBN site (even before you drop the backlink to your target site).
If you’re building Private Blog Networks regularly (from expired domains or auction domains etc) – you’re not always sure of the levels of link juice power that the PBN has.
It’s quite possible that the expired domain is in some sort of sandbox and actually turns out to be dud.
Maybe you’ve already built the backlink (or are planning to) – and you want to check if it was worth any ranking power?
There is no way of telling, how powerful the backlink will be or is for a backlink already built.
Or, wait… maybe there is!
Step 1 – Create A Backlink
Create a link on the PBN site to a page on another site that is ranking for a keyword currently on page 2 or 3 – with zero backlinks to it.
Step 2 – Monitor Rankings
Monitor this target page’s rankings for the keyword for 2 weeks and check to see if it moves ranks – and how much.
Step 3 – Act on Result
If it doesn’t move up in rankings then you know the PBN site was a dud.
You should proceed to remove any backlinks to your site from it AND remove the backlink you dropped to the test site! It’s only fair to do so.
So please don’t be lazy about removing that backlink to the random text site!
Hope you enjoyed this quick little tip for PBN builders 🙂
