Google apps/gmail seo spying. Do they watch us?

Hi,

I use Microsoft exchange for email. I was thinking about making the move to google apps, for several different reasons.

I have heard the manual seo checks coming across different websites when sharing the same Google analytics accounts and stuff. I wanted to know if anyone had any experience that would lead them to believe Google is reading our email.

If I have three seo campaigns that are "white hat" and then a couple side projects that are a few shades darker, do you think if I use the same email addresses for communication with clients and seo software/service accounts and communication, that Google would associate these web addresses? I don't think it's too far fetched.

If one gets the ban hammer, that could potentially put the other sites at risk.

Or is this too conspiracy theorist-ish?

I am really looking to move to google apps.

Please share all thoughts on this subject.


Thanks,

I wouldn't keep all the properties in the same Google account, especially if some are grey/black hat.

If one of the reasons of you moving blackhat activities into google spyware products is to get penalized then yes, go ahead.

google's security team is pretty competent i've worked with them directly

attention to detail is important because there are a ton of digital fingerprints you could be leaving

If you have worked directly with Google's security team would you mind making a thread concerning the many different fingerprints that could be left as well as any other tips or advice you have picked up while working with them?

I think it would benefit this forum greatly!

I do not intend to have the blackhat accounts on the same webmaster tools, Google analytics, adwords, etc....

But, if I am using the Google apps service for my email (not Gmail), with my own domains, you think that's enough to connect them and increase risk?

I guess I may have to stick with Microsoft Exchange for email
