    Hello Guys,

    Sorry if this sounds stupid but I need to ask:

    Does changing the web site IP affects the SEO?

    may be or may be not
    if your earlier ip is shared ip(hosting ip) and banned somewhere in google eyes then your new ip is very useful for u .. to gain PR :)

    So long as the site content stays the same it will have little or no effect either way.

    I would think that there will be no effect because domain name stays the same - which is the same DNS.

    It will not change things. However, if you stick multiple sites on your dedi, Google will know they are the same owner. If you have multiple sites on a shared, Google knows its shared and doesn't know who owns what.

    If you do a quick search, Google doesnt care if your on a shared or not. I have had sites banned on my servers and they dont affect the rest of the sites -- as long as the server is setup properly. The big advantage to your own IP is if you want SSL.

    IP can affect seo a lot if you link your own sites from the same shared hosting. Google can probably catch that. Also if your shared hosting has a lot of EVIL stuff hosted on it you might get a big penalty.
