    I have a number of different sites, all trying to rank on google for the same keywords from the same IP.

    Does google penalise this?

    I've heard different stories that google doesn't allow sites from the same IP to rank for same keywords which would explain why one my sites (was PR5/6) (12 years old) disappeared off google for its major search terms.

    I don't think Google won't rank site on same keywords with one IP. Many people use shared hosting and two competitors may be using same shared hosting.

    I'm currently ranking similar sites from the same IP and have been for years so I haven't noticed any issues.

    In fact i've found it's a great tactic to rank a site then compete with yourself :)

    I would recommend you to use cloudflare for the other sites. There are stories of how penalizes other sites on the same IP too if one site get hit.
