Hey guys. This is SEO Floyd again. The PBN setup section of the course covers starting with fresh PBNs, but no doubt, some of you already have a site, or sites. You're probably wondering, "Well, what the hell do I do now?" That's what this section is for. This is going to be really short, but here's a couple of things that you want to absolutely make sure that you check.

Number one, you want to make sure that your Who Is record is not going to pull up all of your sites. If you went in and registered all of your sites, then they are all going to have the same Who Is record when we do a search. We don't want to do that. We need to make sure that all of our sites, we come in here to C panel, we make sure that we update the contact info. You're going to go in here and just put in the persona that we created. You can create personas for existing sites if you don't have one. You want to change this. This is number one.

The other thing that you're going to want to do, is you're going to want to make sure that your SOA, or start of authority record, does not reflect something you don't want it to reflect. Let me show you how to change that quickly. I've logged into one of my hosting accounts, and I'm going to go here to manage DNS. I'm going to pull this up, and inside here, we're going to see SOA parameters. What we're going to want to do in here, we're going to hit modify record, and we're just going to change it to our persona.

That is going to make sure that somebody doesn't come along, mainly Google, but also other SEOs can use this information to find your networks and to mess with you. As an example, this site that I have, and this is one of my throw away sites, so don't mess with it or anything. Well you know what? I don't care. If you want to mess with my site, mess with my site. It doesn't matter. I'm going to go to a site here called intoDNS. What I'm going to do, I'm going to put in the site, and I'm going to hit report.

What it's going to do, it's going to give me a lot of information, which is cool. What I want you to do is scroll down about half way. What you're looking for, right here, is the SOA record part. Right here, it says host master email address. Now see, here it says Cpanel.webhost. Now this is because of this particular host. They do this on all of theirs, but for a lot of the places, you're going to see that this information is going to be reflected in what you put in.

You want to make sure that you change your Who is. You want to make sure that you change your DNS SOA record so this is not going to happen to you. Also, if someone does a Who Is look up, that they're not going to f ind your email address, which they can then use to find all your other sites. That's just a couple of things that I wanted to update in case you already had sites. Again, I want to thank you for watching the training. I hope you're getting a lot of value out of it, and I will see you guys around.
