    I've never really thought that the big G tracks IP addresses, but I've noticed a lot of backlink providers making it a point to mention that all of their sites are unique IPs. I'm about to take on a HUGE project and am wondering if this is a concern for the average user.

    I will be investing hundreds of dollars into each site in this project to achieve rankings, so I think I'd like to play it safe than sorry. What does using unique IP addresses mean for the site owner? Do I need to access the site from unique IPs via FTP as I update and work on them? I imagine G wouldn't have access to that data, right? Should each site should be hosted on a different hosting account? Or should I only be concerned with changing IP when I log into big G webmaster tools? I'm just not sure where the line gets drawn as far as changing IPs goes.

    Beyond IPs, what information exactly does the big G have access to that will be able to link my sites together? What are the steps can I take avoid this?

    Thanks

    The site itself needs a unique IP, yes. Google shouldn't be able to see you log into a site's back end (CMS) to work on it unless you're using Chrome, are logged into Google, or have one of their many plugins. But for Google Webmaster tools, yes they definitely see and notice the IP you're logging in from and what sites you're looking up.

    A virtual proxy server would be cheaper than buying tons of IPs and setting up FTP I'd think just to log in.

    Thanks for the reply.

    For each site to have a unique IP will numerous individual shared hosting accounts suffice? In other words, 10 of the $5 packages at whatever hosting company. Or will these have the same IP because they are hosted with the same company on a "shared" plan and I will have to sign up with 10 different hosting companies? :\

    I can change IP with my cell phone tethering, but am happy to pay for a proxy server solution. The only thing is that if I'm paying, I'd like to be able to keep the IPs the same for each big G webmaster account. Will a paid proxy be able to provide me with using picking and choosing from the same 10 or so IPs?

    Thanks again for the help.
