Big G is a master at PR and creating fear amongst the community. If they hit some of the bigger players hard, the trickle down effect will scare away a LOT of people who aren’t quite sure about what they’re doing. However, based on our rankings (personal and of clients), we KNOW Private Networks still work, and we have no reason to believe they will stop working. You see, whether you get a link from someone on the net legitimately or if you build it on an expired domain you own, the link is still equally as powerful, as long as you’ve set your expired domain up right (which we tell you how to do here). How would Google know that your expired domain isn’t just another high quality link coming from a related blogger or webmaster? The key is making your network PRIVATE and setting it up SMARTLY without footprints. And honestly, it’s not that tough. Basically, now that a lot of the smaller guys have been scared away or wiped out, the competition is as low as it’s been in awhile. It is PRIME time for you to jump in and get your private network started.
