    Hello SEOs,

    I own a blog network in different Niches and all blogs are Hosted in Different C-Class Ips, but all with same disclosure policy page. I'm afraid it is too easy for Google to identify as a network.

    Does no follow/ no index on disclosure policy page help blogs in any way from Google? If so, which one is better. No follow or No Index?


    Anyone Suggest me on this!!

    Thanks

    You can use both to be on the safer side. By doing so that page will be hidden from search engines. Cheers....

    I have a little network of 30 blogs. I have same policy page on them and i can tell you that my network works really good. If you are being very paranoid then you can just add the noindex tag and you will be fine.

    Hi Guys:

    Thanks all for your information. If I No-Index my disclosure page, will it affect my homepage in anyway?

    Thanks

    You really should be using different disclosure pages. Although it's unlikely to lead to a penalty for duplicate content it does cause the risk of penalty for a link farm. Especially if you have all the sites in the network linking to any single domain. The odds that 50 sites with the same disclosure page, all blogs, all pointing to your site in a short period of time is pretty slim and as such a potential signal to Google.

    Google hunts networks using domain registration details (which they can see). When you start to raise flags in their automated review process, you will be manually reviewed. If you are gaming page rank sufficiently at that review step, then the network will be penalized. Your C-Class IPs or no-follow page is just a temporary solution that they don't really care about.

    TL;DR - if you registered all the sites under the one owner, the network is toast if it gets too big regardless of what you do. That is the number one rule of private networks that work.
