    I save my Web 2.0s logins and PBNs networks logins and details on Google sheets.
    Also all SEO tactics I use I save it on Google documents by details.

    Once, I wondered what if google can access into these sheets and deindex all my fuc**ng networks and web 2.0s.

    Is it possible? I don't think that google can put their brand name into risk through accessing private documents..

    Thanks in advance!

    They're (fairly) open about scanning your emails and searches for advertising I'd imagine there's something in the TOS about sheets as well. Nobody outside of Google can really tell you for sure but my gut says they could - but probably don't bother.

    I'm a paranoid bugger though so I don't keep links on there just in case. ;)

    I would assume they do, and if they don’t, even better. If you’re serious about your PBN, assume Google knows everything.

    Extremely unlikely.

    Friends at Facebook used to be able to able to pull other peoples inboxes and look through anything private they liked. At some point they put an audit trail on it, so people stopped doing it.

    Google on the other hand, I've never once been offered or even heard an employee joke about having access to someones gmail or any other Google product. I consider them safe.

    It is Google products so it is easily crawled in your sheet so my be it also one of the reason for your blog deindex.

    Sounds depressing and same time, surprisingly uplifting too. They won't care about the small fries. But if the small fries turn to big turkey tomorrow?

    Nope. I don't think that Google does that.

    Then you can start thinking when you are big already, which I doubt happen. And even if it happens, it will take a long long time. Just like they say, be Lean (flexible), stop overthinking whether this fit if you are big. Start doing what works best now. You can always change when you are big enough

    I don't think Google checks private spreadsheets.

    Keep your spreadsheets offline and use Excel + Dropbox (free or premium) to sync them so you can open on any other PC if needed.

    Using Google docs for PBNs etc is dumb. I use Google docs for passwords for all my accounts (NOT PBN domains) etc, but they're marked in "code language" so they wouldn't be able to understand what the passwords are for.

    Years ago they did a deindexing and it "just so happened" that my domains that were stored in a GDocs sheet were deindexed while the ones I had already transferred offline were not.

    After that I've never used GDocs for anything besides passwords, and I keep it open in a tab along with my email at all times.

    Google says directly in their ToS that they have the ability / right to scan any of your emails and documents. This "clause" was slipped in around 2010 or so.

    You wanna manipulate with Google algorithm and keep the data on their service? Read that again few times and think about it ;) I don't even use Chrome to check my PBNs, not even talking about gmail, google dns, google sheets etc.

    Try SWIron, it's a Chrome-based browser but they don't share information with Google. I use "regular Chrome" for web browsing / YouTube etc, and SWIron for PBN posting / anything that involves domains that I own.

    Also, the new Firefox Quatum is surprisingly good, and I'm a Firefox hater.

    The setup you describe is exactly what I do, and it's ridiculously fast & easy to set up. You can swap out also Excel for LibreOffice and pay nothing. OP, if you have any worries at all about Google Docs, and it sounds like you do, just spend the 30 minutes setting this up and be done with it.

    Google checks online entries always. If our PBN sites in google sheet that will be caught by google bot. So don't save your data in online use offline save.
