    I'm still new to PBN's and I'm not sure how paranoid is being too paranoid with regards to google. I may need to access webmaster tools at some point, and I'd like to use Google Analytics as well. All my sites are sitting behind cloudflare, but should I be worried about how I log into my google accounts that are attached to these domains?

    At the moment I have proxies setup for each individual account, and only access these accounts in a browser behind their respective proxy.

    Is this all actually necessary, does Google log account IP's and cross reference them?

    IMO either don't attach them to WMT or access them through private proxies.

    I never found a definitive answer, but I've been using a vpn with a different location for each site. I'm not sure if Google looks at this stuff now or will in the future, but I didn't see a reason to risk it when it's easy to hide.

    I needed some api keys for a couple sites so I had to register the site with Google, but I'd avoid Big G if you can.

    I second this. Best to avoid their products altogether when dealing with the PBN sites directly.

    Are you talking about accessing WMT in general though? (For sites that aren't your PBN?) If so - you may be dancing on the too paranoid side of things. As long as your direct dealings with the PBNs don't involve google you should be fine. I'm sure they track IPs obviously, but I really don't think they cross reference in the manner you are speaking. A lot of us would be really screwed if that were the case.

    Unless you start running a huge public network I wouldn't worry about that. Just be sure not to put them into Analytics or WMT or anything of that nature.
