    These are low traffic niche sites, all in the same niche, with unique content.

    My question is:

    I can get 1 IP per site
    I can put them all on 1 IP
    I can put X amount on 1 IP (Say 5 per IP)

    We are going to be collecting emails but the sites are mostly for CPA offers/adsense. These are all white hat sites.


    Please make a case for the difference if you have had this decision before.

    Thanks BHW

    Go with around 10 sites per ip. If they all are whitehat you could probably go more, but 10 sites works for sure and this is from my own experience.

    Thanks! Can you go into a little bit of "why" ? or expand on the topic? I have to make a case for our partners as well. :) Why not 1 for 40?

    Also - taking into account that 'shared hosting' has hundreds of other domains on your ip (or you are on theirs) this shouldn't make a difference. You should be able to put all on one, but if they are all the same niche, same offer, same owner?

    my personal answer would be "it depends"

    - if you're thinking of "long term" and can put them all on different ip's this is preferable.
    - if it's a quick campaign, the number of ip's shouldn't be as much of an issue

    - if you're linking them together, go with as many ip's as you can
    - if you're seo'ing them from all other places, and no interlinking, you'll need fewer ip's

    - if you're ranking for the same term and using the same advertising method (ie adsense) then I'd personally say split up your ips if you can - might work for a bit, and I've seen multiple sites in the SERPs from the same ip / nameserver, however usually adsense catches up.
    - if you're terms are all over the place, you should be ok with the same-ish ip

    - If the ip's don't have a whole lot of other sites shared on them at the moment, split up your ip's
    - if the ip's have lots of other shared sites on them, then bunch them together

    -if you're making good $$ on each site, then split up your ip's. You don't have to win all the marbles - remember that pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered.
    - if the margins are slim, save your money

    Personally, I'd split them up, then layer other projects over the same IPs - so do this project one time, then do 10 more in different markets. Or just do 10 ip's and 10 domains each across 4 different projects to start, instead of 1 big one. But that's just me.

    Ok - I think its an easy conclusion. I will be spreading multiple different campaigns over everything but not as of yet. It should be ok to load up on one ip as long as their is no abuse. Again, these will be high quality, long term campaigns, nothing forced. If someone has a drastic "NO" than I would love to know
