    Hello there!

    We are starting to use Google PageSpeed Service (the CDN proxy service, working exactly like Incapsula or Cloudflare) for a network of 70 websites. For now we have one IP by website and we try to make each website looks independent for SEO purpose. Our worry is if we move the 70 websites to Google PageSpeed Service, they will share the same group of IPs and the Google crawler will detect that.

    Is it a rightful concern?

    Thanks!

    Yeah, if they all share the same IP then you will have a problem

    Why don't you get yourself few shared hosting accounts or cheap VPSes from different ISPs and spread the sites evenly to them?

    It's not a good idea to use Google services when you try gaming Google.

    Sounds like a pretty rightful concern to me. Don't put all your eggs in one basket.

    Google gathers user data across all of its platform to make an ever growing database of information on each and everyone of it's users, by analyzing this data is how they are so much successful with almost anything they touch, they are the biggest users of Big Data of the Modern Era, and in my opinion thinking that one service doesn't talk to another is being quite naïve.

    Now, do they use this data to lock down black hatters and prevent Search engine gaming on a larger scale? I don't think so. The amount of money it would involve versus the actual return it would produce is arguable.

    One thing is sure tho, when it comes to google, remember that they CAN do it. So it's better sage than sorry on this point.

    @ OP, why would you use google PageSpeed service when the other services you mentionned such as CloudFlare do the exact same thing and are completely independant of Google?

    IF i were you, i believe i'd simply erase the problem by switching from PageSpeed do CloudFlare

    Pagespeed is a far superior product, if you are mostly white/grey hat the benefits far outweigh the risks, having every website loading lightning fast is SEO 101.

    Nobody really answered the question properly, even if you switch to Cloud Flare, the same problem exists, any CDN you use will ask you to edit your DNS so that your website address points to their host.

    The question is if you have a PBN with 100 sites using pagespeed, or cloudflare or akamai (if you are rich), will google recognize they are hosted in different places with different root IP's and treat them as such?
