    Hello

    I was thinking if auctions services like Godaddy would provide Google some info about the expired domains used to build PBNs.

    For example Godaddy can find out easily that, the same person had bought domains A,B,C,D...... As there are some info must leave a footprint, like credit card used for payment (even if we are using PayPal, they still can see the last 4 digit of the credit card). And no one can get a different credit card for every expire domain he buy. Also the account name of PayPal which cannot be amended.

    I loved the previous response... but on a serious note, NO they can't share your details with google for 2 reasons.
    1. Data protection, you give your details to godaddy so they have to protect your privacy (it's a law BTW).
    2. Commercial... why on earth would godaddy give free info to google?????

    And by doing so GoDaddy would gain what? If the info got out they would lose business. Why would they do that?

    Don't think so. Besides I don't think google are in to going after individual domains or networks, I think their aim is always going to be working their algorithm to be better add detecting bad link profiles etc.

    OFC they do! What is GoDaddy goal? To destroy PBN's, they don't have nothing else to do, Google also owns all hosting companies, you use chrome? Guess who knows all about what you are searching on the internet?

    even if google concentrated all its manpower to destroy PBNs (what they will not do) they would still use less complicated methods than what you proposed. It is not so difficult to detect a PBN in the first place...

    No - Godaddy (+ all other domain registrars) make alot of money of people who create PBN's, it's business sense to think that it is not in their best interest to deter blackhat IMers.

    Data protection is serious reason I was thinking about.

    We can't be sure about this point, especially after Google became a domain registrar.

    There is no need to worry about this. I have been buying domains for years in godaddy auction and have had no trouble.

    Yes it would make perfect sense for GoDaddy to screw over it's customers to help Google.

    If you buy domain in public auctions you've reasons to be worried, but godaddy really doesn't need to share anything.

    Google's web spam team can just download everyday the list of domain with at least one bid, then if you use your imagination you'll see that it would be not really hard to google to catch a PBN site right after his setup. If fact, you don't even need the amount of resources that google have to do something like this.

    But why would anybody waste their time on that? It makes no sense, probably at least 95% of the domains registered with the goal of being a PBN will just be a failure for the buyer anyway.

    Also, if you're truly building an actually awesome PBN, then Google won't be able to tell you're actually using it as a PBN, since that's your goal to begin with. GoDaddy's auctions are probably way down the list of what people are doing to leave foot prints for themselves.

    Can you tell some private auctions websites ? Also this domains on private auctions, it could be had been bought from a public auction and re-selling ?
