    Domain registration

    Do search engines check domain registrations and give less weight to incoming links from domains with the same registration?

    I wondered about this myself. All of my domains are at the same nameserver, and all of my sites link to each other... I wonder if they are able to tell if I'm promoting myself, whick I am??? They all use differnet domain names...

    Not being an expert in SEO, I do seriously doubt that search engines would bother looking at WHOIS records regarding domain registration details. I have heard it said that they do take into account the IP number of the domain. That is, if one website links to another website (under a different domain) and yet they both have the same IP or are within the same C-Class of IPs that might discount the value of the link - but this is only what I have heard and I have no firm knowledge of whether this is the case.

    I don't think the information in the WHOIS records has any bearing on it. In most cases, search engines will only devalue links between two sites if both of them are hosted on the same IP.

    I linked my sites to each other .

    Some times, it just feels like Google is ignoring those links, so I don't know....
