I host the blog of a friend of mine on my server - it's pretty popular, gets a shitload of traffic, and has a PR6.

He links to my site on his homepage - would I get more benefit from this if my own site was on a different server? I've got a couple of servers so moving my own site to a different one isn't a problem.

I would say so, lots of people say being on a different C class IP helps, but how much is a guess.

Class C is irrelevant.

Google looks at a range of information to decide whether two sites are related, looking at the third octet of the IP is not a reliable method of doing so.

:werd:

The only way it'd really affect you is if you have 20 link farms on the same IP, with the same content, just different domains.

Outside of that, unique content should be your goal.

Don't listen to a lot of the hype on some SEO blogs about random stuff :o

Relevant backlinks are more important in the long term for maintaining your position in the SERPs. That's why the guys who spam 10,000 scrapebox blog comments to their main site drop off the radar after a couple of weeks if they don't keep their link velocity steady. Which seems to be a common mistake made by noobies entering the SEO game imho.

Relevancy and try out a dedicated IP on either domain.


See if that dedicated IP helped out or not.

Report your findings.

LOL its all bullshit made up by the hosts to sell you more shit.

I have a large blog network many of which rank #1 #2 or #3 for their respected keyword(s) and they are all on the same server and on the same IP.

a few sites on the same IP won't make a difference.

provide unique content and media and you will be fine.
