    Does having Shared IP or Dedicated IP Address affect search engine rankings at all? If so what are the benefits of having Dedicated IP Address?

    Thanks.

    No real SEO benefits for having a dedicated IP address, unless you are interlinking with other sites that you own on the same server.

    If you mean pumper sites (that you own) linking to a money site. It helps if each pumper site has a separate IP address for IP diversity, and to reduce the chances of being de-indexed.

    If you're trying to rank locally, e.g. in Canada, then it helps for the site to be hosted in Canada, so effectively it would have a Canadian IP address.

    thanks, so no real benefits. but what if many blackhat/ scammy sites are hosted on the same shared ip adress? would that affect anything or only if I link them all together?

    My understanding is that having a dedicated IP is no big deal...

    Having 700 sites all with dedicated ips and interlinking them all together is a big deal.

    You can opt for VPS as its cheaper than dedicated server and choose dedicated ipds for your website
