    I have always had white hat sites but wanted to get into some auto-blogging sites. Is it a bad idea to put it on the same hosting as my white hat sites? Not really sure how it works, I mean if I have a large host like hostgator it doesn't really matter if it's on the same ip because they're so huge right?. This is a dumb question but are all the hostgator sites on the same ip? or do my set of sites that I have on the same ip? I'm just trying to be cheap and not setup a new hosting fee but want to know if it matters or not.

    Auto blogging is not WH so I would not use the same IP for other sites you have.

    Spend the extra couple of dollars to protect yourself.

    ya, I just thought the larger hosts were so big it didn't matter. I mean the hosts don't care about auto blogs right? Ya I'll just go ahead and get some seperate hosting.

    Well, if you're on a shared hosting plan there is no way for G to determine whether that is your site, or just someone you're sharing the server/IP with.

    If your whitehat site is doing really well anyway, you might as well considering moving that to its own IP.

    I learned this the hard way. I mixed whitehat sites with my auto blogs. I did not notice any negative effects until I targeted the same keywords on multiple EMD's.

    One auto blog ranks very well for the keyword, but the other one is tanking and is not ranking at all.

    When you set up your auto blogs, make sure to block the bots with a robot.txt file, on you plugins, etc.

    I think google has deemed my IP as "less trustworthy" as before. I saw some unusual serp movements, but it maybe the new Panda algo.

    But, to be safe, you will want to move your projects onto separate IP's and name servers (if you can) to make them unique.

    I would say if you are using a large host, with 100's of sites on the same server, using the same ip address, it wouldn't matter.
