Accidently built a PBN, should I use this?

So I have about 11 blogs for different kind of stuff in the same niche. I never intended to use these as a PBN, and I didn't even knew what a PBN is before I created most of these.

In total, all these sites get a small amount of traffic, they're all blogs with only a dozen blog posts. Together they get about 1000 visitors a day, so ~50-200 daily traffic on average per blog.

Each site is connected to their own social media profiles, and that's about it, couple HQ YouTube videos as well.

Now I'm wondering if I should use these sites to have them all link to my one new, main money site?

None of these sites have any backlinks as far as I know, nor any spam or anything in the blackhat world was done here. I was just wondering if linking them all to my one site could possibly do any harm rather than good, to both the individual blogs and the main site?

      If the blogs are all on the same IP address or on the same server, they won't be a good PBN.

        Sigh. The word is unintentionally.

        Were you playing with your barbie dolls and accidentally 11 blogs all in the same niche appeared out of nowhere?

        You built 11 blogs and in hindsight, realized you unintentionally created 11 blogs that could be used as a network.

        If your actions directly caused something to occur, it's not an accident.

        Take some responsibility man...

    You are in a good postion to test some stuff.
    Use 5 of sites to link to one other first and see what happens to the linked-to site, that way you will have a better idea, and if they get slapped you still have 5 more plus your new money site intact, and will have acquired some useful knowledge.

      These are all separate wordpress blogs I used some time ago for similar niches. Well, same niches but different sub-categories, like if the niche were selling cars, I got 11 car-model dedicated blogs.

      Thanks guys, finally someone who isn't looking to spam in order to blast their post counts . Thanks for the idea, I'll use 4 sites to link to the one I am getting mediocre traffic from and wait for the results. Have you done this before? Do you know when I can expect results?

      Cheers

        If I remember correctly, and someone may correct me if not, Matt Cutts has a video on his blog somewhere that actually recommended doing this if you have related sites, but this was a long while before PBN's were even talked about.

        Of course they all have to be pukka sites without the faintest whiff of spam, and I would avoid putting all the interlinks on the home page of every site.

        I have never had the opportunity or time to try it, my sites are all in different niches.

    I don't think it will work. Do not use it.

    If you "accidentally" built it, I highly doubt it's private. It's going to be more of a "public" BN.

    Then unless you get targeted traffic from these sites to your money site your "PBN", as you call, is useless.

    A real PBN is all about authority based off metrics that depend on backlinks one way or another. It is used to rank other sites in search engines above anything else (Traffic, Brand Awareness, etc.)

    A crappy product or service by people that disappear from the forum for a long period of time to make it look like they were working on something so when they come back you will want to click on their crappy product or service link
