    Soooo I have been reading alot about PBN and I have decided to create my very own. I understand that it's important to cover ones footprint to prevent the whole thing getting destroyed.

    Here is what I understand so far;

    - Register some nice aged domains.
    - Set up separate, cheap hosting accounts.
    - Use fake info for all the registration.
    - Don't use the same themes or plugins.
    - Don't interlink link you PBN.

    Now the big thing that leaves me scratching my head is, when I am managing this PBN I will be logging in to each site using my computer. Does this not create a footprint??? Won't google be able to tell that I am using the same iP address? Would it be a good idea to use the Tor network to hide this fact?

    Use Proxies for Each Site....

    VPN can also Help.

    Don't worry about that, you'll be fine. And don't use TOR.

    You don't need to worry about the IP you use for login, google cannot see it.

    If you have a router and a dynamic IP for your internet you may be able to unplug the modem. Change the router MAC address and replug the modem back in to get a new IP address. Can G read mac addresses yet? Then its time to spoof your mac address.

    What would someone do if they were going to different places with free wifi as an example of getting a new IP everytime? Must be more than just delete cookies right? Would a PC look like new if you were to use a backtrack ISO and never save anything each time you reboot the PC? Is anything else being identified on a PC?

    This thread has me interested in how we are being tracked more than anything.

    I wouldn't go near TOR for any reason.

    Use "Private Window" in FireFox to login to each site of your PBN (open new private window for each login). Never use the same analytics on all domains.

    Biggest footprint would be your hostmaster email that will be used when buying hosting. Make sure those are different and match respective domain registrations.

    Please show me where this is exposed for the public to see?

    Pretty sure this info is private between hosting company and purchaser.

    And google cannot see which computer logs into a website, unless you have google analytics installed.

    And possibly if using the chrome browser, it may record things for their big data centres.

    Some more steps you may take but not necessarily needed

    - Do not install Google analytic on ALL of your PBN sites.
    - Do not make all on wordpress
    - Do not keep the same version of wordpress on all
    - Do not link to all your money sites from all of your PBN sites
    - Link out to other sites which is not competing on the same keywords
    - Use firefox for managing your PBN

    Great advice

    @OP if you are using your PBN only for your website then you need not to do so many things.

    Normally, hosting accounts and servers are assigned a hostmaster email. It depends on server admin to set this email. Just something to look out for as with most control panels it will be set, automatically. Everybody can see this hostmaster email setting when they know how to retrieve it.

    If you have them on their own ips and nameservers the default panel should default the email to hostmaster@domain.com
