    I am going to move about 5 domains onto 1 IP address to save some money for a client. What I was wondering is how much this matters to Google if all of these pages link together to other sites on the same I.P. address. Will it matter that much for the rankings?

    Thanks

    Drumminlogan,

    The "Swamy" ... MarkyMark will tell you the truth.

    All I know is what I have seen.... I have three sites on one SERVER (not even sharing the same IP) and their reciprocal links are ignored by Google.

    I fear the worst for a site with the same IP.

    Are the sites PR4 or above?

    How do you know they are "ignored"?

    link: does not show all links...

    I check on Google with www.mysite.com+mysite.
    As you say, "Link:" doesn't produce much

    There's no definitive answer really. Let's say the main domain is a general music site and the other domains cover jazz, metal, funk, etc. Linking these all together would clearly be useful, relevant and therefore acceptable to Google.

    It's not really sharing the same IP that would cause the problems - it's the intent behind the linking and what a manual review or Google's much touted forthcoming Spambot could reveal. The shared IP is a possible indicator of link spam, but is not link spam in and of itself.

    Is what Doc says true?

    We're in the process of setting up reciprocal links between a few sites of our own that happen to be on the same server. Do we have to move the sites to seperate servers so that we get the reciprocal link benefit???

    "All I know is what I have seen.... I have three sites on one SERVER (not even sharing the same IP) and their reciprocal links are ignored by Google."

    Is this true!? So for instance all my sites are with the same hosting service, and they have a lot of differnt "servers". Are you saying that if my sites are on the same "server" this happens, not the same hosting service right?

    Hi

    I believe it is beneficial to have your sites hosted geographicallys far apart across multiple IP addresses. Ensures a wide variety of A class blocks in your IP address.

    The more it looks like your sites are not in the same place, the better.
