    Hey guys,

    Perhaps a newb question but I've previously ventured into the autoblogging territory and have been banned before as a result of non-unique content. I'm curious though if google banned my server IP or my domain name? ie. if I switched my server IP if I'd get around the google ban (or vice-versa for domain name). Any insight on the subject would be awesome.

    Thanks!

    Heavily discussed here many times. I personally did not have had a proof from anybody here that a IP ban occurs...
    the usual argument why this does not happen is shared hosting meaning that G would then ban possibly thousands of other websites, too.

    Can you imagine a whole Ip range banned off a huge host's server. :spank:

    I think that if a shared ip address is the only common factor, other domains are not automatically banned or penalized. But if the domains are interlinked, or show some other relationship such as common backlinks or Whois information, then there can be trouble.

    I guess your domain name has been banned.

    Since yesterday i've tried feedpress and it's seems to be working well. If you link back to the orginal article source when you copy articles, is it then not duplicate content? Because sites like ezine articles also have text + link backs and they earn the most with adsense.

    If the IP could be banned then the hosting companies would not rent you any IP just like that, and they would ask you to write on some kind of contract for taking all the responsibility and costs in the future if the IP would get banned, and the cost for hosting would be much more expensive.

    Wow, that's a lot of domains, and approx. 300 domains per IP. Do you have 16 dedicated servers?
