Importance of a dedicated IP Address to Google?

Discussion in 'Search Engine Optimization' started by Vitallywell, Feb 29, 2008.

    Does anyone have any current knowledge and or real life experience with the importance or lack of, having a dedicated IP address for your hosting account as far as Google Page Rank and other search engines are concerned? If you have 1 IP address and you add on domains, does that dilute page rank or trust? If it is shared and someone else's website that shares the IP address gets Google slapped, does that impact my website or blog?
    SEMrush
    I am looking at new hosting providers and dedicated IP address options are making me wonder if they are worth it. If a website or blog takes off, will I regret not having a dedicated IP address tied to a domain name (it is tied to the domain name right?)?

    IF you have to many domain with one ip address, google might think that your site is a blog net farm.

    If you have a lot of sites on one IP and your inter link them then you would get any value out of those links

    Google knows that, (may be...)99% of the websites in the world are hosted using shared hosting.
    So...It really does not matter.

    Thanks all. Great feedback. Looks like you saved me at least $30 a year on a new hosting account and domain.

    BTW - Current Google update, my site dropped from a Google PR 2 to a 1 after a campaign to increase high (PR 3+) backlinks (not paid links - organic). Prior to the previous update, it was a PR3. I made on-page and off page changes for the better I thought. WTF? Do I just have to wait until the dust settles?

    I am no expert, but I am not stupid either (I think). This is a total website revamp... (majority of backlinks to index page which has no name change and better on-page SEO and additional "authority" backlinks) Any insight?

    http://www.vitallywell.net (I also NOW own .com - long story, .NET has most backlinks)

    Thanks in advance.

    There's no importance with a dedicated IP associated with SEO, though it is better for site uptime and dedicated connection.

    I have some websites on the same IP address. They still have good rank on Yahoo or Google search results.
    I think the content and backlinks of a website is much important than a unique IP address.

    You dont need a unique IP to get rank higher in search results.

    You can use shared hosting and get on top

    If you want to gain value from linking them toghether, you need separate IP's!

    That would be wise, but you would never need unique IP`s.

    If you're setting up some kind of link exchange scheme between your domains to rank higher in G you should take separate/one IP factor into consideration. In case of one site's position in SERP's it really doesn't matter. You could rank high even on shared hosting.

    Matt Cutts says in his video on Googlemaster Channel on Youtube that Googlebot see IP Addresses. If IP addresses has nothing to do with SEO, then why Googlebot check this?

    I agree with renoir. Majority of websites out there are on shared servers and IP addresses. And there are no facts or statistics to verify that a dedicated server will benefit you with SEO. What you are dealing with is misinformation from WEB HOSTING companies that are trying to sell you on a more expensive plan so they can get into the SEO game. Even though they have no freakin idea what they are doing or talking about. Its a scam to get an extra $30-$50 a month out of you.
