1) How to create Unique Email Addresses for each domain
PBN creation cost money and time so it’s very important to avoid as many footprints as you can, registering domains with the same owner name and with the same email is a big footprint, to avoid this footprint we need to create new email ID’s as you will be pretending that all domains belong to different persons, you can create new emails yourself or you can buy them at fiverr.com in bulk of 15-20 for only $5 which will save your time and hassle.
2) Register the Domain Name and attach the newly created email address
After getting emails, search for good expired domain and register it, of course you will register your new domain with your credit card/PayPal or any other method, so you might be thinking that if I am registering a new domain with my credit card and paying the company with my credit card or PayPal account then that domain will be on my name so what is the need for creating new email ID’s but the truth is that you will be pretending as the manager of the site and its totally legal to buy domains on behalf of your customers.
The process is like this
You buy domain on behalf of your customer and after buying domain you will go to control panel and then domain management and there you will change domain profiles there is one shortcut also you can buy whois privacy which will hide domain ownership details but it will cost you little extra money, if still unclear you can contact me and I will try to answer your questions as soon as possible.
3) Add newly purchased expired domain to the Hosting Account
We have already covered how to purchase hosting from a cheaply shared hosting provider and purchasing hosting from the service provider who offers C-class IP hosting, if you have not read it till now, you can read it at https://drivingseo.com/pbn/best-ways-avoid-pbn-footprints
Goto the hosting dashboard add the newly purchased domain to the hosting account, every hosting company have slightly different method of adding domain to the hosting account, after you add the domain to the hosting account you need to set the DNS (Domain Name Servers) , every domain registrar have different DNS, when you register domain, domain registrar usually send you an email which includes DNS settings along with another setting, please check that email and hopefully you will find DNS setting in the email, fill them up and now you are ready to install WordPress.
4) Install WordPress
Most hosting providers offer script installs via the cPanel. Most of the time they use Softaculous and sometimes Fantastico it’s easy and fast, if the hosting provider does not provide these methods then you have to manually install WordPress via FTP, this is a little bit tricky and time-consuming, you have to make database and download WordPress from wordpress.org and upload it through FTP.
5) Adding Theme & Plugins
Adding themes and plugin is easy but you have to be careful in selecting themes and plugin you need to install unique theme on every site, some PBN owner prefer to install full contents themes i.e. themes which display full contents on home page, they prefer this because they think it’s good for SEO and backlinking to money site.
There are few more consideration while installing plugins, every site should have the random plugin installed on it, few plugins that you must install on each domain are listed below
- SEO Yoast or Platinum SEO Pack or SEO Smart Links or SEO Ultimate or All in One SEO etc.
- Share Buttons by AddThis or Simple Share Buttons Adder or Social Media and Share Icons or Social Share Buttons by Supsystic or Sharify or Share Buttons etc
- Contact Form or Contact Form 7 or Fast Secure Contact Form or Clean and Simple Contact Form or Very Simple Contact Form or Contact Form by BestWebSoft etc.
- Bad Behavior or Brute Force Login Protection or Spider Blocker or Antispam Bee or Broken Link Checker or Advanced Invisible Anti-Spam etc.
In addition to the above, every site should have unique username; you can add this to user section through the dashboard.
One important thing is that you should make your site as legit as possible meaning that your site should look good and real. You can do all this yourself or hire VA through upwork.com or through any other online hiring site, you can get cheap VA’s from Pakistan and Bangladesh.
