Public WhoIs Data for SEO Ranking

Public whois domain gets importance and influence in the Google ranking than the private whois domain. A private whois mean "something to hide". Matt Cutts quoted Public vs. Private WhoIs at Pubcon 2006 as:

""¦When I checked the whois on them, they all had "whois privacy protection service" on them. That"™s relatively unusual.
