    I'm in the beginning stages of building my PBN network. After picking up 20 expired domains, I registered them all under the exact same domain provider with the exact who is information (the registrar was go daddy). I tried transferring them to different providers but theirs a domain lock time limit which means the domain can not be transferred until 3 months is up. How do I fix this footprint i've created? The domains are fresh with no content/hosting. What are my options?

    The typical and minimum lock-in period for domains are 60 days, post that you can transfer, but for now, there is nothing much you can do, try changing the Whois information by getting a whois protection for each of your domain and then ensure to host each of those websites on a different platform, hosting company and different region, that should help you out.

    Doesn't matter if you change it now. If google has indexed your site they will remember they all have the same whois.

    There's no need to buy private whois out there. Use fakenamegenerator to get unique WHOIS instead.

    Also make sure that you're using unique hosting, IP and nameserver. Find them on webhostingtalk forum. Remember, diversify is the key on building PBN and to reduce the footprints.

    Hmm, it's screwed I should have though about it before registering your domains. the normal time it takes before moving the domain to a new registrar is 60 days.

    Not really. You would have to trigger a manual review for them to go that deep and find your PBN, but in your case if they do, it will just take them 5 min to penalize you. Anyway, what I would do in your case is change the Whois details of all domains. You could purchase protection for like half of them and leave the other half with fake data, but Godaddy is a shitty registrar and overcharges way too much for protection, so in my opinion don't do it. The good thing with Godaddy is that having all your domains there isn't that much of a big footprint, because most of the domains in the world are registered there.

    So, just change the whois info and make sure you don't leave any other footprints especially within the sites themselves. Also, be advised that sometimes Godaddy might ask for verification, so it would be the best if your info isn't fake, but different enough not to link the domains together.

    You can start with buying Whois protection

    The whole question of if he's screwed for "sure" or not isn't the issue in my opinion. The question is would you feel safe aiming a network that had this happen at your money site... and the answer for me is a strong NO. Its asking for trouble mate. Somebody here mentioned simply selling off this network, I like that idea. Sell it off in pieces to a couple members here and you should easily be able to make your money back and start over. The lesson you've learned will have been free at that point.

    Are you willing to invest hosting, articles and your time to 20 domains that you are NOT sure whether it will work or not?
    Lesson learned. Move on. Charge it to experience. and sell me one after 60 days :cool:

    1. Wait for three months.
    2. Move 10 domains to somewhere else with fake names.
    3. Get different hostings.
    4. Don't link to your money site with all 20 sites in the same week or month, slowly drip them.
    5. :D don't tell everyone that you have a Private blog network.

    Buy whois protection for few domains and change the Whois details for the rest of them. Godaddy just charges too much for protection while the others are providing it for free.

    Will the old who is information still be on record even though I've changed them?

    It is NOTa problem if you build good PBN sites, just add standard whois, build good looking PBN that won't be subject to a manual review and you will be just fine, most of these type of footprints are not an issue with Google search... However, it can be a problem when you triggered a manual review because you have a shitty PBN sites.

    I have some small networks that do have the same WHOIS info, it is protected for the competition of course and they have never been a problem, but that is because i build my PBN's like they are moneysites, and when you build that type of quality, footprints like these really don't matter all that much.

    Treat them as a normal website/blog, not mainly for pbn. Use service like cloudflares to protect identity of the websites.
