    Just wanted to know your thoughts. If you had some 100% white hat sites, would you get the whois guard for them?

    Why not? unless you would want people to contact you through your whois for some reason. Could also reg the domain under an LLC.

    2 people contact me this year via whois, and asked to buy links on my sites. $300 for nothing!

    It can pay off.

    I could imaging having a 'contact web master' controlled link than your personal information would be a little better. I always use WHOIS guard.

    If the sites are 100% it becomes secondary. But even then, it's free with a handful of registars, so it's entirely up to you.

    Does it really matter?
    If your sites are whitehat then no need to whois guard. If anything just provide an email account that you check weekly or monthly so that you dont have to worry about too much junk mail.
