To begin with, something very basic is that the hosting service and IP of Tier 1 are to be different from the money site. It is that Google does not catch you and it is something essential not to share any type of resource. Regarding the Registrant, the same conditions apply. When registering domains and hire hosting, you should use different names and emails.
You do not share resources or accounts with Analytics, AdWords, Webmaster Tools, etc. If they are to be used in Tier 1, they should be discharged with different emails. Google controls everything and it is like Big Brother, so do not take it easy or for granted.
Tier 1 blogs must have a DA and PA above 35. The aim is to transmit a large chute of authority to the principal site, so we need to get the expired or abandoned domain which still maintain their authority.
As for the content, it must be of the same subject of the site for monetization and it must be of quality to a certain extent and to provide utility to the users. Good links are good because they are wrapped in good content.
The tier 1 and money site must share the subject for the reason that you will put links from powerful and highly relevant domains (T1), but that may not be enough. For that to be effective and relevant, the links should come from websites that have the same or a related subject. Again, naturalness is what prevails here. If our money site speaks of health and you link to blogs about recipes for homemade pizzas, your PBN will not going to do well from the beginning.
Regarding the links you will point to the main site, the anchor text must be branded and generic such as the following;
- ‘At moneysite.com we talk about’
- The Money Site Blog
- The guys at Money Site have more info’
- Click here
- Read further
Such anchors most naturally provide links to the profile and I return to the same point that variety is necessary. The T1 should link to other authority sites that are not owned. If Google sees that you are linking to other blogs, it will not raise suspicion because everyone does so.
