Google Search Changes and Improving Search Rank 2017
The buzz on the web for the past few weeks seems to point to the death of PBNs (private blog networks). This is the second such act where Google has targeted PBNs, the first was in 2014. A PBN leverages, what is considered to be the most important ranking factor in Google’s organic search to rank ahead of the competition. How is it done? Every website needs to be renewed, usually on an annual basis. If the owner doesn't renew it, the page rests in a state of limbo. Any person can use a website like GoDaddy, NameSilo, etc. to pick up the dead site.
