I'd never really taken this into consideration before now but was reading up the other day about whether or not geographic location of the hosting servers affects SEO. Seems to be pretty split from what I read but I recently moved all my sites over to hostgator who's servers are based in the US. A couple of my .co.uk domains seem to have suffered a bit. My .com domain has always been hosted by hostgator and gets mainly US traffic. My audience is worldwide, although UK traffic converts better for me so am now in the process of changing over my sites to UK servers to help improve my google.co.uk rankings. What are your thoughts? Does google still take this kind of thing into consideration?
