What is a case study?
What are case studies: it’s becoming popular for bloggers to publish case studies documenting their journey and sometimes showing readers proof of how they end up making money? Many bloggers will mention they will hold nothing back and as a reader you can expect to find all the steps needed to replicate the process.

Case study three (Justin) and the 16 K website
Justin, another case study published on Empire flippers flipping a $16k website the whole journey can be found here the 16k flip. It’s a somewhat unusual case where you need expertise, that is knowing how to deal with backlinks after owning the site. Private Blog network strategy is involved with this site.
I want to highlight the strategy of using Private Blog Network or PBN, in my opinion, PBN is a complicated issue to deal with once you flip the website and it will be problematic for the buyer. Since, as a buyer, you need to deal with PBN deindexation. It will surely have a negative impact on the site under the new management/owner once the buyer removes the links.
