    HI BHW,
    I have been researching the last few months, planning and making notes to get into the world of SEO white/black.

    I have a few domain approx 30 - they are on 2 separate servers 1 godaddy ( I know, I was young and naive) the other a UK hosting company

    about 20 domains on the 1 IP at godaddy and 10 on the 1 IP with the UK server.

    How necessary is ti for me to have separate dedicated IPs for each site. i.e. I have 2 main sites (the rest are not set up) one on each server.

    If I run some white hat/black hat tests on the other sites, will the main sites be effected being on the same IP.

    If a test site gets sandboxed will that damage the main sites?

    any help would be appreciated.

    It shouldn't really matter. I saw a video with Matt cutts talking about this subject saying that it shouldn't matter but there is a very small chance it does for example if every single site on the server was spamming etc. I don't think they ever penalised a whole server before though

    I probably would recommend against placing all your money sites on the same IP block if you are using more "gray area" link building methods.

    For example if you own a private blog network and are linking to all your money sites with them, there is a chance that it could turn out ugly.

    Again it really depends on what sort of linking you are going to do to each of these sites.

    thanks -
    i Have a main wordpress blog on each IP.
    I wasnt planning on doing anything tooo naughty on them possible some SAPE, utilise a bit of scrapebox for tier 2/3

    I would keep the test site the totally separate( no link juice from other sites) the only thing in common would be the IP you think that will be ok ?

    Best will be to host your main site on a different IP.
    That way, regardless of what you do with the rest of your sites, the probability of it affecting your main site is close to zero(if it is hosted on a totally different host).

    On shared hosting, one of the users might blacklist the IP as spam while everyone on the shared host suffer being put in the junk folder (mailing) for example. That won't happen with hostgator (they'll ban you long before), but it's generally one of the issues of shared ip. If you are going for adsense sites or amazon, i'd use separate so it doesn't look like a template operation - same template, same linkbuilding, ip, whois details, aff id, etc.

    Nah, it doesnt matter if you have 50 sites hosted on the same server, Unless the site requires a tremendous amount of activity, like uploading and dowloading large files, and etc...

    thanks - its not such high activity traffic - and not looking for a straight regen of each site - each site is custom template, simialr overall strategy but not mimal links to the site - the only thing that is going to be the same is the same IP. I think that there is an option to add a dedicated IP will look into it.

    It really doesn't matter you have different IPs for each website or not for example on hostgator and godaddy shared hosting they have plenty of websites hosted on the same IP and that doesn't matter unless on a special case like your IP is banned from Search engines.

    It doesn't really matter, but in terms of SEO if your websites are all linked between each other and stay at the same IP address might get Google get you some questions about it.

    ok perfect - so as long as the sites are not linked to each other - I am pretty free to test out different strategies on each site, without doing Google damage to the other sites on the same IP?

    Think you're safer on a shared ip from a large host. Also, don't think there's a problem interlinking reasonably if the sites are not aimed at the same keywords, but have some common ground.
