I won a domain from GoDaddy Auctions. How do I hide the footprints from Google?

    Hi all. I won a domain from GoDaddy auctions. I plan to use this domain in my Private Blog Network (PBN). Now how can I hide the footprint from Google?

    I have a few questions:

    1) Of course I will fill in fake WHOIS information immediately when I get the domain transferred to my GoDaddy account. But won't GoDaddy temporarily fill in the WHOIS information with my current GoDaddy account info? If so, can't Google look at the past WHOIS history and they would see other domains I have won from GoDaddy all have had my GoDaddy account info in the WHOIS history? This seems like an easy footprint for Google to detect.

    2) I may purchase WHOIS privacy when the domain transfers into my account. But as per 1), isn't a footprint still left? If GoDaddy changes the WHOIS information to my account info when it transfers the domain to my account, even purchasing WHOIS privacy can't erase the WHOIS history.

    3) Is it a footprint to leave this PBN domain in my GoDaddy account along with my money site domain? From my understanding, I can't transfer a domain out until 30 days has passed. That means I have to keep this PBN domain in my GoDaddy account where I also keep my money site domain. Would Google be able to detect any footprints from this?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    do you really think that people from google are checking whois for each domain?
    there are many big companies behind famous websites which are obviously used like pbn, and they are still ok.
    the point is, build a legit website, and do not spam it, try to make it look like normal website and you will be fine.

    you don't need to transfer the domain just buy hosting and change dns

    for footprints I'm interested too, waiting for some experts to reply

    I don't think people from Google are looking for it. Rather, I think Google may have incorporated this into their footprint algorithm, which isn't hard to do. It's not difficult for Google to comb through WHOIS history with an algorithm to detect PBNs.

    Yup, I will definitely find a different host (with a different IP) and change the DNS. That's a no brainer. But I doubt it's difficult for Google to look into WHOIS history with some sort of algorithm.

    Absolutely agree with you. But when GoDaddy transfers the domain to my account, before I can even change the WHOIS information, GoDaddy sets the WHOIS information to your GoDaddy account info. I can change the WHOIS information immediately after the transfer, but the WHOIS history still shows my real GoDaddy account information as part of the history.
