    Hi all. I just won a domain auction and I plan to use this domain as part of my PBN. The problem is, this domain is on the same GoDaddy account as my money site. I have added privacy to the new domain I won.

    If I use this new domain as part of my PBN and point a backlink to my money site, is it possible that Google can trace that this domain is on the same GoDaddy account as my money site?

    Assuming I use different nameservers and different hosting servers (with different IPs) for this domain and my money site, I'm thinking it shouldn't be possible for Google to trace this since I have added privacy for the new domain.

    If need, just make another Godaddy account and transfer for free, done!

    The problem is, I think the domain is locked for 60 days because it's just been transferred in after the auction.

    I don't see why you would need to transfer the domain to another godaddy account. If you had whois privacy at the time of purchase, you should be fine. There is some debate that google can see under the whois privacy, in which you can add fake whois details then add the privacy on top of that.

    I added whois privacy after the domain was transferred in. Unfortunately, when I paid for the domain, I didn't see an option to add whois privacy. Thus, when GoDaddy transferred the domain to my GoDaddy account, it filled in my default GoDaddy account info into the whois. Once I could access the domain in my account, I immediately changed the whois information to fake information. After I faked the whois information, I then added privacy.

    Based on this, it is possible for Google to track that a domain (using privacy) and a money site are on the same GoDaddy account?

    Google and Godaddy are two different companies. They don't have access to each other's records. So if both domains are hosted on separate IPs, you have very little to worry about.

    To be totally safe, move the domain. At the very last, it HAS to be in a different account with different name servers.

    Yes it's stuck under 60 day lock. Just make sure it has privacy on it and transfer when you can. It will only become a problem is you build a full PBN on GoDaddy hosting, which is just not smart. As long as it's just one domain it won't matter.
