    I'm busy to set up my own private blog network, This is what I'm doing right now,
    1. Using all kind of different themes
    2. use different plugins
    3. Different class c ip's when I have more than 50 blogs I will buy class A ip's
    4. For every 3 to 5 domains I use different namerservers

    My questions are:
    1. do I need to have for all my blogs a different email address set in Wordpress and contact form I use? Can Google see this?
    2. Did I forgot something here? any tips?

    Thanks:)

    I have my own Private Blog network, Here's what I did,

    hosted it in Free/cheap hosting that are available. This way, all my site is hosted in different a,b,c class ip and in different countries.
    Not all free hosting are totally crap but most of them are, please install all possible security plugins for your site specially wordpress or else you will have a site full of viagra and cialis hidden links. some of cheap hosting have similar problems like this too, but then again, if you don't secure your site, even if you host it expensive hosting, you might run with this problem too.

    Install different Flatform, from wordpress, drupal, movable type, moodle, b2evolution, etc.

    Author/Nickname should be different in every site: please don't limit your self to the word "admin"

    I'll post again if i remember anything that is worth mentioning...

    Adding Privacy to your domain is also important. I"m not sure if registering in different names instead of getting a privacy protection is practical. I haven't done it but I guess it's worth trying.

    For each and every article you want to post with links to your money site, get 3 more up first (without links). This is to prevent Google from tagging your site for promoting.

    How would you guys go about varying analytics and ads? Do any of you use GA or adsense? or is that suicide?

    what about for hosting account, should fake info be used here, kind of difficult to do since it must be a billing/paypal address. can google actually see my personal info within a hosting provider?

    also link to other authority pages + interlink. Rather than building them like network build them like they are each worth making money. Remember a site just linking to you is nothing compared to a site which has traffic linking to you. There is a big difference.

    Cheers,

    use WP Joomle Html/CSS pages etc
    Different Whois (some private, some fake)
    Dont buy all domains from the same place
    Dont buy all domains at the same day/week/month..
    Buy also OLD domains
    Different plugins with the same purpose
    Different pages names (contact us, get in touch, give us a call etc...)
    Better to use different hosts (shared) than seo c-class hosts
    Never interlink them or anything like WMT,ANALYTICS,ADSENSE,AFFILIATE LINKS
    Dont set posts to publish at the same second
    Dont use the same theme, but do mix with some free themes (with credit links)
    If you use photos (taken from google images) I suggest edit them all (few hours for like 200-300) then change file type (if jpg then make it gif, change size of img, play with the color - PICASA editor is best for it) then drag pics into google images to see if it's finding more pics like it or not.

    I guess that's all as far as footprints go

    I use wordpress for all my sites, and I do all the stuffs mentioned above. In addition I have spyderspanker plugin to hide my sites from all bad bots. Also while purchasing expired domains, check whether the brand name is still in use, I don't use the exact brand name as it leads to copyright violation. I lost 2 of my best sites due to copyright violation.

    When setting up a private network you need to create each blog as if it was another independent person. So do you think many
    people would all use the same domain registry company? Or use the same hosting company?

    Make everything unique and put time into it and it will pay off in the long run.
