I am planning to build a PBN (private blog network) but do I need different IP addresses for PBN?

Is it possible to have PBN on one IP address? which one is better? why? any suggestions?

If you are going to go through the effort of building a PBN, you should probably make sure it lasts for as long as possible (hopefully indefinitely).

And if you want it to last for as long as possible, then you want to make it harder to identify the fact that it is a link network.

One way you can help hide it is to host the sites at different IP addresses. There are also many other steps you probably want to take to hide the fact that it is a link network. Think about all the different ways that someone could identify whether your sites were connected somehow. These are called footprints. You want to minimize your footprints and blur them as much as possible to make the network harder to identify. Spreading your sites across different IP addresses is just one way to help do that. But there are many other things you need to do also besides that if you want it to be hard to detect.

One of the most overlooked footprints in a link network is the structure of the network's outbound links. It is also a common footprint found in homepage backlink networks that makes them incredibly easy to identify. When you have a handful of websites that all only link out to the same other websites, it is a really easy pattern to identify. That is an easy pattern for Google to spot. In order to blur that footprint you should make sure your PBN sites link out to useful pages on popular authority sites so that each site's outbound linking pattern is diluted and mostly unique (except for your links to your money site). You lose some of the link juice by linking out to other authority sites, but you increase the likelihood of the link being trusted by Google.

If your PBN is a tiny one like just a handful of sites, then you can be a little less careful about hiding things. For example, if you were building just 3 private sites to create 3 private links under your control, you should be able to get away with it just fine by having them all on one IP. If you were going to do that though, then there is also no need to hide anything. Just make the sites useful sites that you openly declare your ownership of. Google won't really care if you do that. It's okay if you interlink your own sites in reasonably small numbers. What they care about is when you create significant numbers of links (or substantially powerful links) just for the purpose of manipulating your rankings or for manipulating PageRank.

If you intend to build out a large PBN and push a huge amount of link juice then it becomes much more important to blur footprints. With each new site you add to your PBN, it becomes increasingly more important to hide footprints.

It all comes down to the quality of your network sites really. If you build strong, worthwhile sites that could stand on their own which just happen to link to a site you care about, you will probably be fine.

Honestly though, for the couple of bucks it costs for extra hosting accounts, you would be foolish not to host them on other hosts.

Avoid any hosts that advertise that they offer separate IP addresses or call themselves "SEO hosts".

There are a lot of footprints you will want to watch out for. Nothing additional I would want to share publicly, but just think about ways that search engines could tie your sites together and identify them as being under one owner.

Different IP Address is good for getting maximum value from your PBN websites and less risk of banning all sites. I did not use this but I like reading tips from different different site so I have a good knowledge about this.

Content is king so you should not only focus on IP Address but also create a good content which look like written by a real person and use easy language used in general talk. I mean avoid spinning content creator because they only change word and most of word is not used in general talk.

For example If you want to say "What bad weather" but spinning content creator will change it to "What garbage weather" so always use unique and good content.

I think tutorial type of website will attract more traffic then simple blog.

Do not use any popular method of creating a PBN, Most of PBN users use wordpress and install 3 to 4 plugins on their all website, It will be a easy for google to check it and punish your site so use different different software, plugin and If possible then also use simple html page.

It is always better if you use different IPs on websites in a PBN. But if you are using a CDN, that's not important because CDN will change your website's IP to its IP.

You would want the PBN's to be hosted on different class C ip's. I remember hosting multiple set of sites on the same ip and ended up getting outed by Google on all of them :(

Yes definitely , go all out to different a,b,c class IPs if possible. You can sign up with different shared hostings too if you're on a budget.
