    depending on the network size, yes IP variety is pretty important. If you have just few sites, 1-2 IPs could be fine, but if you have lots of sites you need lots of different IPs, otherwise you are leaving a major footprint and your network could be easily devalued

    If the network is for your own personal use and its only small I would not worry a great deal. Domain diversity is a signal Google will use slightly for ranking but Google also knows that thousands of websites can all be on the same IP legitimately.

    If you've got 10+ sites I would do it anyway to be on the safe side and also for the different IP's pointing to your site.

    I have around 30 websites. Do I need to spread them around different IPs and hostings?
    If I buy a used domain and place an off topic article will I lose it's PR?

    30 websites I would use different IP's. Even if it is 5 on each IP so 6 in total.

    No it is highly unlikely that the PR would drop, as long as the domain wasn't dropped.

    Thanks, do you think I need to go as far as c-class for each 5 domains or it's too much for such a small network

    Certainly not too far. 5per IP is a lot safer than 30per IP. Best thing to do is use the same hosting provider and just buy multiple baby hosting accounts. Then ask them to put each site on a different server. A lots easier than using different hosts.

    You really want to have different IP's if you are using the sites for ranking. Not every domain needs its own IP but you will definitely raise flags if you have a lot of links coming from different domains but similar IP's. Especially if they are high quality links.

    I have a small network for my personal sites and instead of buying multiple hosts, I just use free hosts. Only problem there is that sometimes, they will just delete your blog for no reason. To help tackle this (if you are using wordpress), install a backup plugin that runs on auto everyday. So if they delete your blog, you can easily setup another on a different host and import all of your posts. If you have scrapebox then even better as you can create a list of your blogs and run them though the link checker everyday to make sure that your blogs are still online.

    If its a small network of 3-4 sites then using same ip would not be a problem. However if its a big network and have many sites in it, then you should use different ips, as if you use the same ip the chances of leaving digital footprint increases and that would raise red flags in google for you.
