    If I want to have several sites/blogs target the same keyword, is it usually better to have them on different hosts instead of all hosted at the same?

    I suppose G can tell if they are all hosted at the same server or does it matter?

    Its recommended to host them in different server with whois privacy enabled. Also don't interlink them.

    I don't find any info about that from trusted source, but its not a big deal for G to find it using IP address.

    It's really not a big deal for them to be hosted on the same server as long as you're making them all independent projects from each other. As long as targeting for the same keywords doesn't mean creating duplicated or very similar sites, and that you aren't interlinking between the sites. If you're doing either of those two things then you'll probably be better off using separate hosts.
