    can google connect your blogs via whois?

    all this talk of seperate class c IPs and seperate nameservers would be rather pointless if google can see your network of blogs on whois. i know you can make it private but is it something they actively do?

    unlikely. I can always use a fake name w/ domain registrations.

    And they cant see any billing info so i wouldnt count on it. The only thing that they can probably catch you with is if you have a shared ip address

    If they do do it, its probably not the google spider that does it. I would think there is an actual group of people who would check you out

    i take privacy for the ones i really value, but don't bother with autoblogs.
    daddy was giving privacy away one year for free w/dollar info domains..

    Why? I have privacy on all my domains. Do you care to provide additional details?
