Sending Traffic to PBNs

From everything I am learning about the way Google's algorithm is evolving into the future, I am growing more hesitant about building "2nd Tier" backlinks to PBNs without sending any traffic to them. We know that Google can determine the amount of traffic to a given page, so my question is....

Does Google penalize a PBN that is getting NO traffic, yet is still receiving backlinks & social signals? (since this is clearly unnatural and seems it can be easily detected)

Contrary to my SEO logic, my guess is no because not many "SEO thought leaders" are talking about this as a vital part of their backlinking strategy. But why? It's just something that seems so obvious for Google to detect.

With that in mind, does anyone have any recommendations for tools and/or tactics that involve sending high engagement traffic from various IPs to a specified website to make these "2nd Tier" backlinks to your PBN site look more natural?

I have seen some things out there, most notably from social media exchange sites such as FollowLike, that offer traffic exchanges. But I don't know how long each visitor spends on your site or whether they click thru. Then there's CrowdSearch.me, which sounds absolutely great in theory, but I have not seen any results in rankings and their email support is mediocre at best.


Any input would be greatly appreciated! I'm completely at odds because my gut tells me I should do something to cover up this seemingly obvious footprint, yet not many people are talking about this as a high priority.

Thanks,
Ethan

    various C class IP will be helpful, and that's a must to do PBN that way.

    Making it so natural is the key for doing SEO today, not just to do the money site this way but the PBN as well..

    Building a good (not so superb) content on the PBN is the way to do it. You wanna build it to last, right?

    social exchange will be a good stuff to go, the traffic is valid since it's from the real crowd. =)

    Google is penalizing PBNs! It does NOT matter if it is receiving traffic or backlinks.

    Focus on hiding your PBNs, once google finds out it, it is game over. And no traffic or backlinks don't matter

      So does this mean I should be evaluating competition for keywords that are currently using PBN's to get their high ranking and checking that off as a positive thing to look for?

    I think sending traffic to PBNs would be far more effort than needed, even if it did have some benefit. If you pick strong enough sites, in my experience, they always get random traffic from real links pointing to them. An example was a site I found -- the website of a firefighting station -- it would get traffic from several partner sites -- the websites for firestations in other counties all linked together.
