    Does anyone know if moving to a new server affects your results in Google? I've been doing very well with them until this month. I just got a dedicated server about a month ago and my traffic this month did a nosedive. All 9 of my sites are down to about 20 or 30% of what they were the past few months.

    I can understand some sites suffering from a Google update but not all of them at once. No major changes, Googlebot stills comes around every day and crawls pages and they still have thousands of my pages indexed but they're not referring much. Any ideas?

    I would seriously doubt it. Check all the pages on your site and see if the correct Google ads are showing up or if the public service ads are showing up.

    I have Google ads on one site and the ads match the page content. Is it possible I got an IP address that was previously penalized by Google?

    It just seems too much of a coincidence that Google isn't referring much after the change to a new server. I don't use doorways, redirects or anything I think the SEs won't like.

    Have you contacted Google to find out what their take on the problem is? They usually reply pretty quickly.

    No, I'll give it a try. Didn't think they would bother replying. Thanks.

    An FYI for anyone going through this, I just got this reply from the Google support forum:

    "Yes. Google often drops a site for very short time until new IP crawled."Yes. Google often drops a site for very short time until new IP crawled." I feel better already

    I too am happy to hear that!

    My sites have all dropped out of site over the past couple months too.

    My host moved all of my sites to a new server just prior to that. I have been suspecting that was the cause.

    Here's hoping our sites climb back up soon!
