You have? So you know they only used spammy ways to rank?

PBNs are highly discouraged by any search engine.

Now allow me to let you in on a secret - no matter how many tools you waste your time with, no matter how many 'spy' websites you use, no matter how much time you waste chasing competition - You Will Never Know Everything Someone Does To Rank!

Many things are done in the background that CAN'T be tracked - Just Sayin...

I don't have PBN's but I am bit jealous from my competitors because they are getting good results from PBN and I am following natural back linking and lacking behind them.

Your first mistake is chasing competition - who cares what they do....

You say they get good results - are they making money? are the successful? do they grow their business?

See these are things you can't answer and also why it is the dumbest idea ever created by some lame wannabee marketer that said chase competition and do what they do.

It goes against Google TOS, so they are not safe. However, they can be used effectively if done right. Google "PBN guide" to find more information, but keep in mind that Google is becoming better at recognizing blog networks, so if you care about your website and looking to get long-term rankings, it's better to stay away from them.

How do you know that? It ain't so private if one can figure out what they are doing.

PBNs are not accepting by Google, the best way go through with Guest Posting.

If your competitors are using the PBNs then do not worry, let them do.

You go with Google's Instruction, not your competitor activity.

Thanks,

PBN is one of the first reasons for Google penalty. This tactic is black hat today and is Dead. You have to create unique relevant backlinks.

It is a black hat tactic, but it's not dead. Not trying to promote PBN here, but just got to say that people still use PBN to rank websites.

I use PBN to rank small affiliate websites. Many of my sites are over 4 years old and still ranking at the top.

Ok, what do you think about guest blogging, Is it safe or not ?

Overall, I consider using it as a strategic seo part and updating sites with unique content other than links that are sent to the rest can work. In any case it is a risk

PBN is a black hat SEO technique. Although it's effective, you should not apply this.

DA is a moz metric and has nothing to do with any search engine ranking

How would Google find out someone paid a journalist for a link?

It's safe if done right. I don't have much experience with guest blogging.

From what I know, you should look at the quality of those websites to make sure that they are "real" websites i.e, not sites that were created for the sole purpose of accepting guest posts.

Another thing I heard is that it's safer to get no-follow links when guest blogging.

I'm sure there are some other things to consider as well

it's not kind of safe or not safe, actually, it helps to reach out your business.using this PNB really makes sense of business to reach a more related audience to discuss your business.
