Whats the advantage in the dedicated ip address - if any
Its just helpful to avoid anyone to co-relate your websites. But remember, there are many other factors too.
It does not make any difference in ranking a website.
Sometimes you need one, for instance if you are taking cc's and need a ssl certificate you will need a dedicated IP.
From my experience, I always start off a site on a shared IP for indexing purposes. Search Engines index sites on shared IP's faster then on dedi's. You can benefit from other peoples SEO for your first year, or until your site out grows shared hosting and move it to a dedicated IP on a VPS or something.
I never build a fresh site on a dedicated IP, you will find yourself working to hard for traffic. I hope that helps!
I second procam - start at shared, move to VPS!
They also index websites with pink text on white background faster specially if you have a lollipop in the header.
Hi Procam yes it will be helpful for me.
I have lots of sites on dedicated IP's and I have never seen this behavior by the search engines. It is no harder or easier to get your site crawled, index, or ranked because you are on a shared or dedicated IP. It has no bearing at all on how the search engines treat your site.
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Having a dedicated IP address for a website or blog definitely shows that the owner puts a higher value on the site. But in the strategy of things, I think that is very little factor when it comes to SEO. After all SEO depends on your marketing skills not on IP. However, dedicated IP is a good thing that you should have, because for private SSL certificate it's essential. Even, you can use one dedicated IP to all your websites. [/FONT]
For what it's worth, G mentioned in one of their quality patents that they could look at sites on a dedicated IP as being more trustworthy and of higher quality. Considering we've run out of ipv4 IP addresses, I don't think it makes any practical difference.
If I'm building a quality, long term site, I would always put it on it's own IP. A quality site deserves its own IP, regardless of SE indexing quirks.
If you are in to crosslinking your own sites and you read the "LocalRank" patents then they talk about discounting links between the same "host" which would be an issue if you are in to this type of link building.
Of course unique IPs makes a difference, especially if you have multiple sites on the same IP that you own. If it's a public IP, and mutliple unrelated sites are on it, then it makes no difference.
Dedicated IPs can be used when you want to manage the multiple sites and the demang for resources are high. In the other case VPS hosting will fit the need in small business firms. Hiox India provides this type of VPS Hosting with both CPanel and Without CPanel.
The amount of resources has nothing to do with the amount of IP adresses.
Indexing your site on dedicated ip or shared ip makes no difference. The difference is the amount of links to your website. Use a meta indexing tool and you'll be indexed in hours.
Seriously dude what does this even mean?? and what is a public IP?
Whether your site is on a shared IP or a dedicated it makes absolutely no difference in how hard it is gong to be to get your site ranked. NONE!!
I have a fair number of sites most are sharing the IP with other sites of mine. For the most part the only ones on dedicated IP's are the ones with shopping carts where we collect private customer info. A dedicated is required for the ssl certificate (which the cc companies require if you want to collect cc numbers and info) I have had any additional problems ranking sites on a shared IP over a dedicated.
As far as being on a vps or dedicated server if your site needs the resources that is something completely different from having the IP address issue. Most vps's and dedi's come with 2 IP's but they can either be for one website or can be shared between multiple websites. If your site was on a crappy shared server and you move it to better hosting that can help your rankings as a slowly loading or website that is down a lot is not going to do as well. This is a completely separate issue from the IP address issue.
I have wondered if getting a dedicated IP and an ssl cert in your site's name even if you don't do sales would maybe get Google to take your site more seriously thus giving your site more weight such as authority site status faster. With other authority factors in place etc.
I have no reason to think this would work, just speculation.
I say you give it a shot and report back here and let the members know if it helps with ranking. I also was wondering the same thing about the SSL, I might also give that a shot and see what happens.
I'm somewhat skeptical that SSL would have any effect on rankings because SSL isn't necessary for your typical info site, especially if it doesn't collect any personal info or require a login. It would be an interesting test, but very difficult to test in a robust way.
Regardless of whether SSL causes any difference to rankings, it's a good excuse to use on your hosting provider if they give you any shit about wanting unique IPs - you just say that you need an SSL cert for you site (thus requiring a unique IP), and don't mention anything about search engines.
I agree but this isn't about ranking is about getting a new site crawled faster because your on a shared IP. I've hosted news sites at hostgator and seen one blog post get indexed in a matter of minutes. I also have new sites hosted on a VPS and it takes weeks for the search engines to find me on a fresh IP.
I do agree with you, IP having nothing to do with PR but it does help for a new site to start it out on a shared IP to benefit from others SEO efforts when it comes being seen faster.
That's not what I'm saying. I said you share an IP with lets say 100 other sites, those site might have been online for months or even years. You will get crawled faster sharing an IP with sites that constantly update there sites. That's a fact, from experience of 5 years building blogs.
In my experience that is 100% inaccurate, I have several sites on dedicated IP's that were all indexed within 24 hrs of me putting them up, even when incomplete. One of them only has about 200 words on it. I have quite a few sites that share IP's and those sites on average take 3-5 days to index naturally.
