    I've got a question about the whole SEO hosting thing. I'm going to be doing a bunch of different local sites for clients, like dogGroomingLondon.com, ambulanceChaserLondon.com, hotMobileNurseNewcastle.com, etc. I'm not going to be doing anything essentially black hat with them -- maybe a bit gray hat here and there -- but still don't like the idea of them all being easily seen to be one grouping of sites; if some piece of algo or some reviewer doesn't like one, I worry they might all get tanked. So it's not going to be a blog network or anything like that, but just sites that I want to keep separate. The sites will all be as different as I can make them, design-wise, etc., but some stuff will probably be similar between sites, like the overall site structure, the onpage setup, etc.

    Now, I read the excellent stuff by savvypro and that's pretty much put me off SEO hosting. So my question is, should I still maybe just go for SEO hosting, just for what it's worth? Or go with normal hosting and get a unique IP for each site I build (although would that make little sites like this look a bit unnatural, making them stand out)? Or go for multiple different hosts (which might become a bit of a hassle as I start building up to 20, 30 sites or more)? Or is it no big deal when it comes to this kind of portfolio of sites, and I should just use normal shared hosting and forget about it?

    Would appreciate your thoughts. Thanks.

    Bump. Is it worth it going the whole SEO hosting route for different local sites, does it make a difference? Or should I go for different IPs? Or should I just go with normal shared hosting for all sites? Thanks.

    I wouldnt be too worried about it, although if you want different IPs I'd go with several cheap shared hosting plans rather than SEO hosting.

    You could just go with a reseller plan instead of SEO hosting since your going the to be doing white hat. Just make sure it's on cloud hosting.

    I would just buy a load of $1 a month/$5 a year hosting plans.

    You can get seo hosting if you are to build a network.Also numerous shared hosting is difficult to manage so you can get ip's for each website that will be good IMO...

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    You can just go with a couple shared hosting accounts from different hosting companies and you'll have nothing to worry about.

    Most of the time you should go after SEO hosting if:
    a) You are building a network
    b) You are planning on linking to all those domains from the same network

    Seo hosting with different ip c-class for each site is mainly for networks to avoid tracking

    Thanks, everyone. Good stuff. I appreciate it. Pat and Alex and bass, is it best to actually go to totally different hosting companies for each site, like one site at hostA, another at hostB, another at hostC, etc., or is it okay to buy several different hosting packages at one host, one for each site?
