Quick Update: Although PBNs still work, they now have a history of being targeted by Google and therefore may not be the safest option. This is why we now focus on creating online businesses that are independent of SEO traffic.
Like our host Greg Nunan says at the beginning of this episode, “Boy oh boy what a week for SEO”.
Our post last Friday about de-indexed PBN sites was followed by many articles on other blogs in the SEO sphere (here, here or there for example), showing that Google’s hit on PBNs wasn’t targeted at us in particular, but rather towards PBNs in general.
Now it’s time to analyze what happened and learn from it.
Today our guest is Lynn, NoHatDigital’s in-house data analyst. Lynn has been working hard over the weekend in order to understand more precisely what triggered the de-indexation of so many PBN sites.
The info she shares is very valuable for anyone who is still planning on building up their PBN and making it safer.
Have your sites been affected? Did you notice any patterns? Do you still trust PBNs as the main source of traffic for your websites ?
