A cluster is basically the link of private blog network sites (PBNS) that are together. For example, you have 6 PBN sites in Tier 1 and you have 3 money sites, now is a cluster of 2 sites each say Cluster 1(PBNS1 & PBNS2), Cluster 2( PBNS3 & PBNS4) and Cluster 3 (PBNS5 & PBNS6).
Now if the cluster one is only aiming at money site 1 and cluster 2 is aiming at money site 2 and cluster 3 is aiming at money site 3, there are chances that this network will get caught by Google and get blocked. Hence it is important to make sure that PBN clustering is done where each cluster is aiming at different money websites so avoid the direct relation to only one. Like PBNS1 is aiming at money site 1 and PBNS2 is aiming at money site 3. This is surely going to be a safe option to avoid getting caught since it is a black-hat SEO activity.
