    Methinks the difference will be negligible unless the other people on the shared host were doing some hardcore crap hated by the big G.

    Search engines don't have much reason to check IP addresses unless some seriously fishy stuff is going on.

    I have changed several times my IP address nothing changed... No loss in ranking or backlinks... :) So i guessed nothing... I don't think Google will ban IP unless it got some good history... :)

    This one is always being debated by SEO consultants.
    I believe that Google frowns upon a website sharing an ip with several hundred others. Plus the odds of someone being "bad" are beyond your control. For the extra $2.00 a month to have a dedicated IP. I think it's worth it.

    Your PR, Backlinks, etc. will be fine.

    Thanks for your in put,I thought that my backlinks would not be any good any more, and I did get a dedicated ip yesterday.That y i put up this post,was not sure what would happen.I all-so have another site that I will launch but it is going on it;s own host and dedicated ip, I want to link then together better. I don't know y my font was black,maybe hit something but lately when I post here something gos wrong.
