I got a job as an SEO specialist, but I'm having a problem. Please help

Hi guys,

I hope you are all doing fine.

So two weeks ago I got this job as an SEO specialist in a beautiful marketing agency, everything looked perfect for me, I love SEO, I enjoy doing it, but I have never worked in an agency before, I used to have my own clients working from home, I had as max 5 clients.

At this job, I got over 10 clients on my plate, which is completely fine by me, the product manger asked me to create a PBN to start ranking those clients which still fine for me, I'm good at creating PBNs and I have been using them since 2012 and they work fine for me. I'm still gonna combine some outreach campaigns with the PBN links to have some diversity.

My problem is:

When I had my own clients I used to have separate google analytics and search console for each site, so they are totally separated, but with this company they have all their clients in 1 or 2 google webmaster account as they are mainly specialized in google Adwords and they need to track their campaigns performance.

My concern is, If I build a PBN and start building backlinks to clients websites and they all are in the same webmaster account, it will be a big footprint, isn't it?

What would you do in this case? I'm really stuck and I would appreciate any kind of help please.

What would you do if you have more then 50 clients in the same google webmaster account and you want to build PBN backlinks to those websites?

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thank you

    You are not putting the private network sites into Google Analytics, so why would it matter?

      apparently he is and also using every PBN site to link to the same "money" sites.

      One manual review of one site and down goes the entire PBN being used by all clients.

    Yes it will be a big footprint. I think there is no issue in having separate accounts for different projects as all you will have to do is maintain a sheet of ID and PWD and that's all, according to me. As I'm new to this, this is all I can say about your issue!

    I wouldn't. I'd use some and I'd use others to leverage outreach. Who taught you to use PBNs like that?

    Even without Google webmaster if Google ever manually reviewed one of your client site links they would see all your links to the other sites and use that footprint to find your ENTIRE PBN!!

    People often forget that linking patterns themselves are footprints and the easiest to toast your entire network (and even manually penalize client sites forever)

    Same webmaster for all the clients
    This is not footprint, its suicide in my opinion. If you are using PBN (which google hates ) to rank all these websites , if google finds any single one out of them then it surely gonna check all the sites linked to the webmaster resulting into penalizing of all the site linked to that webmaster.

    Never use the same webmaster or analytics accounts for all sites. You will get caught by Google.

    Google is becoming smarter day by day.

    That's really really risky. Save your clients and save your job don't use PBN like that.

    It seems that the OP is only aware of using PBN's since 2012 so I'm wondering is he/she really an SEO Specialist or a Link Builder only. An advance practitioner should know what to do whatever the task will be for its clients.
