    Hi,
    just a quick question. I want to start a new project in a niche I already have 3-4 websites in. Now I will get me a new webhoster wit different server IP and a fresh domain. I have these 3-4 trusted websites and I want to create links from these to my new website. Now, how important is it to hide my whois? Will google know that I link to my own website without whois protection? Or will they know it anyway? Or do they just don´t care? If they know, will the link lose power?

    It is in the same niche and it must be complete legit to link to the new site, I don´t see a problem there. Only thing is, will the link be worthless when google knows that I am the owner of the new domain?

    Its a myth if Google really know it or not, I haven't read anything about that yet though. But a better practice is buy whois or go for a cheaper way, change the whois info to fake ones.

    As I am not a tech guy first, but try to log in your domain panel in your registar for example Godaddy, and then navigate to domain section and check each domains Whois info, and change it to the former owner, or fake one.

    Then change whois info to whatever you want, let them do it.

    And that, my friend, is why you don't use EU domains for PBN's.

    It remains to be proven that Google checks the WHOIS and in my personal opinion they don't. It sounds a resourceful / costly process to map the whole web whois wise.
    That being said, better be safe than be sorry.

    It´s an .info domain. I found a few German webhoster with whois protection but its pretty pricey and probably not worth it just for 3-4 backlinks.

    Sad to hear that, I know nothing about German website law&policy, UK does have similar policies, like you must upload your ID to claim a domain such as this bullshit, while in US, you can nearly do anything you like, change whois info to whatever you like, whois protection fee is okay not pricy too.

    I involved in scraping PBN domains in 2015, and know its very hard to find good expired German domains, so I know your dilemma.

    So if no way to change the whois info for free, then let it be, as Germany version Google is easier to rank and still in the "savage" time as English version of Google as I guess.

    Search Engine Optimization is growing a lot more and more difficult and the frequently unmentioned guidelines keep develop. This is confirmed in present SEO activities such as the loss of life of Develop My Position. In the results of this, the false impression is that individual weblog systems do not perform.

    Let’s individual stories from fact here. One, BMR was never an individual community to begin with. It was something where essentially anyone could pay a fee and get their content and hyperlinks on weblogs within BMR’s system. There was nothing individual about it and it’s not wonder that the website was gradually hit down by Google and everyone saw any beneficial SERPs results they were experiencing from BMR vanish in the following days and a few weeks as the backlinks from it vanished.

    Secondly, individual weblog systems most certainly DO perform if you know what you are doing and they are indeed individual. This is where WHOIS sector comfort comes into play.

    If you go over to WHOIS.com, you can get into any sector deal with on the web and just from that you can get information about the person who authorized that website. This contains private information like their first and last name, deal with, contact variety, and more. This is all of the facts which someone has to feedback when they are applying their website and lying down about this facts are regarded unlawful.

    So as terrifying as it appears, some of your most private facts are easily available to anyone with an internet access and the thought to go to WHOIS.com… that is UNLESS you use a WHOIS sector comfort support like WHOIS Secure.

    If you put in the URL of a web website which has WHOIS Secure defending it, the registrant information will appear as WHOIS Secure and will give their information in conditions of where the company is situated for the deal with, their contact variety, etc.

    You can pay to get WHOIS Secure on your website or websites of choice, or you can get it for free with all new sector users with NameCheap as the two are linked together.

    Besides maintaining crazies off of your front side garden in fact information individual, WHOIS Secure provides another useful support in conditions of SEO which is definitely value referring to as it requires non-public weblog systems.

    Google and other search search engines can also use WHOIS.com to find out who authorized and operates a web website. This means that if you’re developing hyperlinks between websites within your individual community, if you don’t have WHOIS sector comfort in some type, then Google can see that it’s just basically you developing hyperlinks to yourself and consequently your hyperlinks will not be value nearly as much.

    Therefore you can use WHOIS sector comfort to keep them wondering (yes the security expands to keep Google from figuring out your site’s ownership) and make it look as if there are no artificial connections between the connecting websites in your system. There are other factors which you can do to keep factors looking natural in your system which we’ll discuss on another day, but for now think about defending your signing up identification using something like WHOIS Secure.
