    don't think so I got some 1st places for reasonably competitive niche and they are all private.

    I have used both public and private, I have not seen any difference in ranking.

    As in WhoIs Guard? If so then no I seriously doubt they take that into consideration as too many sites use it, especially as some registrars offer it as standard.

    I'm ranking #1/page 1 for many things with private. It is more of your server speed that is really affecting it.
