    Hey. So I am making some plans for some new sites. I am trying to figure out my setup for Google webmaster tools and Google analytics.

    I have two gmail accounts. Acct1 and acct2

    Acct1 has three sites on the webmaster tools. One site has been hit for unnatural links and has been deindexed. Another site is a small business site and I don't need/care for any seo; it is Not deindexed.. Another site is not developed, but I did want to develop it. It's going to be an informational site and I was going to utilize seo for rankings/traffic. White hat only; and very limited seo at that.

    Acct2. No sites in webmaster tools. No Google analytics. HOWEVER this account I had to log in to and out, and it is"linked " to Acct1. And by "linked", I literally mean Google asked if I want to link these accounts, and I clicked yes (*face palm).

    So I want to know, since my acct1 webmaster tools has one site that has been deindexed for spammy links, do you think that this could potentially hurt any site I have in those webmaster tools and analytics...? I don't plan on doing any black hat stuff on any of the other sites at all...

    Secondly. Since my acct2 has been linked to my Acct1, do you think any new sites I put in webmaster tools or Google analytics will be hurt in any way....?

    I would like to know you guys/gals experience with using Google webmaster tools and Google analytics, and dealing with penalties. These new site will be legit, large websites offering real unique content and real value. And no off page seo.

    I am thinking i should create a new gmail and use for the new legit sites- webmaster tools and analytics... But i already have a thousand accounts to manage, plus i would bed to get a new phone number (free app i guess), and use an alias. If i go this root and create it with an ip that is not my home ip, then can i log into it on my home ip down the road? Or will this be enough to link me to three other accounts ?

    Feel free to chime in with any experience. Thanx

    In my experience they don't link (algorithmic) penalties. 100% sure about this because I have 5 old sites in the same WMT account; 1 hit by Penguin, 4 still going strong. Might be different for manual penalties though and obviously it can change in the future.

    Splitting everything up is probably the best idea, but you not only need clear your cookies, you also have to use a different IP everytime you log in. All in all, I'd definitely not link any of your sites in any possible way. Better be safe than sorry.

    That's what I was thinking. Ugh, going to be annoying creating and managing more accounts, and a pain with the proxies!! But thanx for your insight. I guess I'll get some proxies and keep using cleaner....

    What tools do you use?

    I use a seperate browser (in my case Firefox) with disabled cookies, history, flash etc. and a VPN for these things. Also, my smaller sites don't have analytics/GWT anyway.

    Good luck.

    Sounds good. Thanx. I was also thinking about going the vpn route. Hidemyass. Which do you use?

    I was using opera and switching out proxies, but then they changed up the browser and now you have to use whatever proxy/ip windows is using, which is a nogo.

    I use HMA as well. Not really popular here, but if your don't really truly have to be anonymous it's the best VPN there is IMHO.

    Same with Firefox as Opera BTW. For me it's not really a problem since I only watch those accounts for maybe 5 minutes every two days. Be sure to not use your default browser (especially if it's Chrome if you're ultra cautious) in that timeframe though.

    there hitting 301 redirects now are passing penalties well it happened once for me. but all do to a 301 redirect, i doubt the webmaster tools/ analytics would pass penalties that seems like some sneaky stuff

    If it's serious manual penalties, then yes. If it's algorithmic penalty, you should be safe.
