    I have read on several places that even if you have multiple C class ips, Google will still know that it's the same owner because of the whois information. What are your thoughts on this?

    Do you think registering a PRIVATE whois will help this situation?

    Domain registrars can technically retrieve information behind private whois (which google is). And for those wondering, yes, for a few thousand dollars anyone can become a domain registrar and see behind your private whois. Something to remember when you're stealing those landing pages. Anyway back to your question, Google has to track too many domains to be requesting private whois data from all the different registrars there isn't really a feasible way they could do this without pissing a lot of registrars off. With that said, it's highly unlikely that they check behind private whois :)

    Just remember there are plenty of other footprints Google can track. GL

    I have personally ask name.com if another registar can see my private who is and they told me that they can't do it.I don't know if this is true.

    Mirrorer: I personally heard this from a speaker at PubCon a few years back. Whether it's valid I have no idea since I'm not a registrar. But since the guy said it during a session at a paid conference, I'm going to say it's probably valid since I don't see someone speaking on information they didn't believe was 100% accurate at a major conference, someone would call them out.

    Since I can't post links yet... search google for "does google see your domain's private registration data". You'll see a good article on your question as well. I'm fairly certain you're in the clear though.
