I am on a ?semi-dedicated? server at the moment (shared hosting with low user base). I have an established website that is a little over 5 years old. It is in the tech niche. The CMS is Wordpress with a unique theme. Next month I plan to create a new site. It will be kind of a personal blog / review site. It will not be related to my tech site at all with the exception that I will be laying claim to both sites (I will be claiming both on my Google Authorship circles account). I will have 1-2 links pointing from one site to the other. This new site will user a Wordpress CMS (unique theme) My Question: Since both sites will be on the same host using the same IP, will this hurt the SEO on any of the sites? Should I rent hosting using another, non-related provider for the new site?
