    I'll try to make this short since I forgot to add it to my other bigger thread regarding PBNs. How do you guys handle the whois information for every site in your PBN? I read that some are doing false names and addresses, me personally I have all domains at GoDaddy and using their Privacy protection option for each domain, which hides the whois. Is this a good practice? I don't think Google can see through that but it's worth asking. Also, keeping all domains under one registrar is a bad practice? Again, I'm not seeing how Google can flag this since the whois is hidden behind privacy and Godaddy hosts milion of domains.

    Thanks!

    Ever looked around the internet at whois for sites, heck, go do that now... How many "private whois" do you see? You really don't want the obvious footprint that every site that links to you from GoDaddy has whois do you? I mean, come on.
    Stop with the private whois, instead make some as the previous owner, make some as a related business name at an imaginary address(empty strip malls are great for this). Some I register to people that come up on a Facebook search for an area, then use an address for that name that I find online. This is great if I am planning to not do any social media, because I'll just share one of the profiles as my own on the site, sometimes nab a picture for my pages about me.

    That's fine up to now that you have used GoDaddy, now more on to other registrar's, don't over think this, just use others. Personally, what I do is I have accounts on 6 different registrar's, I first check to see if I have any current coupons for them, and if I do, I usually use them. If I don't have a coupon, I then just go with the next on the list. Simple. Sometimes I'll shoot a Nerf gun at the screen and use the one it hits, like throwing a dart but not as damaging to my monitor... In other words don't over think it,but quit using just 1.

    Is the email associated that important? I mean, should it be real and working?

    Yes. Because of you get a DMCA or other important request, it will come through email, so what I recommend to do is make something good sounding, like [email protected] or some such and then use that account to forward to a central email, that you check on a semi-retired basis.

    The email is extremely important, especially for the contact data verification requests your registrar has to send you like twice a year. If it bounces, you risk losing the domain. Do it like patriotnews said, create an email forwarder for the domain or register a few free email accounts with services that allow forwarding.

    All other data can be bogus, noone cares, just make sure the email works properly.

    i buy gmail verified accounts, put fake data for all my whois. The only risk with this is that if you forget your password and info for an account its hell to get your registrar to let you in. My password saver screwed up and didnt save my password for a domain on network solutions, still battling with them to try and get it back, and their request new pass through email gives me errors.

    I have used false information for many domains. Till now, no one asked me to prove my identity ;) If its not your money site, I think its okay to use false info.

    about the email thingy: What I do is: I always use admin/info @mysite.com
    then from the control panel, I use mail forwarding - all the mails sent to [email protected] will be forwarded to my personal gmail account and my personal gmail account will not be shown on the site :) Only the [email protected] will be used as the contact email on the site.
    In this way, u can set many different mails - all will be forwarded to one single gmail.
