Been working on my PBN, looking to monetize

I've been building my own private blog network for the last year after scraping for expired domains. Since then I have about 20 sites with PA/DA of 25+.

I've been successful using this PBN to promote my own niche amazon affiliate sites to the top of Google serps but now I'm looking to set up my own version of ranksource.com or rankhero.co, something where I can sell backlinks on my PBN.

Any recommendations how to market it here? Looking to run a type of subscription service providing a certain amount of backlinks per month. Any advice is appreciated!

    WSO and link in sig sounds like a decent strategy for a network of your size

      If you'll monetize your PBN it will no longer be private. Because of that, you will eventually lose it and if people start posting crappy content on it, it will lose power. Better use it to rank a few affiliate websites of yours and keep everything in house...

    For selling links, it may be better to have a separate PBN. And 20 domains is not that much...

    It sounds like a really stupid idea. Maybe you should reconsider before becoming an idiot.

      Exactly, just what we need is another fly-by-night "PBN" that gets roasted by some rookie service provider.

      Keep your network private and to yourself and rank sites with it and monetize it that way.

    Don't do it. You've been successful because your network is truly private. Once you start selling links in it the "P" in "PBN" becomes "Public" not "Private." People will want to post crappy content. People will complain and report you when their sites don't immediately rise in rankings. Competitors will report you or try to do nefarious things to bring you down.

    Keep building it up, keep it private, use it for more of your own sites.

      Why don't you launched more Amazon sites if you have the idea you reached the max for your current ones.

      What you think will happen when you add more links to your private network? Most probably your Amazon site rankings drop, so it's trading money for money here.

      So think what will bring in more, selling links or higher rankings!

    I think this highlights one of the key problems when it comes to PBNs - they aren't that cheap to setup so you really need to use them to promote sites that actually make money.

    Sure you could rent your network out but you'd be better of trying to build a site that actually converts it's rankings into visitors and it's visitors into either customers of big fat commissions.

    People so often start with rankings and then try to monetise the traffic they get when most of the time you'd be better off building a site that is proven to make money and then try to rank it.

    20 sites is plenty enough to rank a money site with medium competition keywords. Keep it private and monetize for yourself.

    Unless you have high PR sites you won't get much out of selling links anyway.
