I was reading this thread http://www.warriorforum.com/adsense-...ally-know.html and one post (made by yukon) caught my eye.
There's nothing wrong with one person owning a network of same/similar niche sites, it makes passing traffic back & forth a whole lot easier. Example, If I owned a site about woodworking, I would have similar sites like: |
Now my question is, is it OK for these sites to look obvious that they belong to one network of sites as long as they are "legit" sites?
I'm wondering about this because the reason we use different hosts or SEO hosting for PBN is that we don't want Google to know they are owned by the same owner, correct? (Google devalue the links from the sites on the same C-class IPs = same owner).
Then does it mean that even if they are legit sites, if Google finds out they are owned by the same owner, the links to money site would be devalued? (Meaning I should be careful not to make them look they are owned by me.)
But if not (Google still values links), then what makes the difference between a PBN site (Google would de-index or devalue the links once found out) and the "legit" site Google keeps to value the links?
I hope my question makes sense.
