    99.9999% sure it won't, it just hides your personal info from WHOIS databases

    I always make my whois private. I've never thought about if it has an effect on PR or SERP position, and really I don't care. If it is a factor then it's only one of many and any small amount of neg effect can be overcome with other factors. It doesn't matter what kind of site I'm working on, I just don't want the personal info that's included in a whois to be publicly available.

    No it doesn't affect... Some of my sites are ranking on no 1 spot in Google with privacy option on... In start who is was not private and they were doing good in ranking and then i did who.is still no loss in ranking and they keep getting better with work done on them...

    So Big No for any expected loss in ranking because of private who.is
