    Hi Im new to niche building. Im currently growing the number of sites I have.
    Currently all my sites are on 1 dedicated server.
    Is this considered risky. That is, can't somebody to a reverse lookup an see all the sites that are located on my server, and then know which niches to target?

    Im new to this and would be grateful for any help.
    Thank you

    SEO wise unless you are interlinking them all then you have nothing to worry about.

    Privacy wise - people cannot find all the sites located on your server with just the IP address - so you don't have anything to worry about. If they do a look-up on the IP they will only be able to see the hosts name.

    yeah, it's pretty easy to find the sites located on an IP

    think a lot people take an all or nothing approach, 1 IP per site, or hide their sites on some shared hosting server with heaps of other sites

    quick thought - if you're wanting to continue using 1 IP, maybe register a whole bunch of free dns type hosts and point them to the same IP, get them indexed etc. at first glance it might look like a shared hosting IP

    unfortunately anyone can learn the sites hosted on an IP.

    OP, buy several dedicated IPs from your provider and build sites on them.
