    PBN - can google or any third party see the information you used for your hosting account? I was using the exact same information for all my hosting accounts, but then I thought this might be a footprint. Should I use fake info?

    Of course, using the same info makes it super easy for ANYONE to find your network. There are reverse whois tools in which you enter in owner info and it shows all the domains associated to that owner.

    You should mix up everything from domain whois to registrar and hosting companies.

    The private info you give to the hosting companies for payment, I do not see how Google could check that but you're never too cautious

    Google doesn't have access to some dinky little private company's customer records. Relax. Google can see your public whois data. Focus on that.

    I think you should keep all business agreements with your real name (or company name) as a matter of doing good business (those hosting bills are tax deductible after all).

    Google cannot see your private information but you should check to see what the company makes public. For instance if your host is also your registrar then you may have some information showing if your whois is not protected.

    Google doesn't see the registration information you provide your hosting company.

    And here is a classic example of someone who

    a) didn't read the question
    b) doesn't know what they're talking about.

    Google cannot see your hosts billing records. That's like saying Google can see your company's customer list which is stored on your computer. The answer is NO billing information on a hosting account is NOT a footprint.
