    Is it obvious...yes. To a human.

    Do you really think Google crawls the WHOIS of the domain to check the registration to compare if a website owner is using another site to link to themselves? Highly unlikely.

    Also, calling out a website publicly is against the rules. You just outed this guys whole network here, sure it was obvious but now every noob in town is going to go saturated his niche and report his site for spam.

    People like you are what make me second guess posting anything useful here.

    #1. Domaintools says I've 1000+ domains. The more common a name is, the more domains he/she owns.

    #2. Can you please refrain from posting links to others website? Might hurt someone's business.

    That's pretty uncool to out someone's sites, even if they've left a big footprint.

    I was agreeing with him it was obvious. Not arguing.

    My point was more or less that it's just not feasible for even Gaggle to catch it, they can't be checking everything. Eventually sure, but it's just unlikely.

    So many times I've been about to post something really useful on the forum - like post a great back-link source, but then I realize that there is a slight possibility that someone could potentially find a path back to my money sites and my keywords.

    The probability is usually so low but I just can't take any chances.

    If your url or keyword appears on this site and you are viewed as successful on the forum, get ready to say goodbye to that success.

    This is why it grates me so much when selected members do "backlink giveaways" which come close to my general neighborhood, just do draw attention to their own crappy back-link sites - of course, saying nothing is the best policy.
