Can Multiple Sites On The Same Ip Address Hurt?
Posted 09 November 2006 - 01:05 PM
so my question is, do the se spiders know that these sites are all on the same server, and if so is there a chance for blacklisting?

But if some or all of the content is the same and if the WhoIs information is all the same the engines can definitely pick up on this. In my experience only Google really does something about it. And even then there is no penalty per se. Just that they choose one site and only one site to show higher in the SERPs for a given keyword phrase.

Yes, the engines will have no desire to show all the sites since you own them all and they all sell the same thing. They will see it as you trying to gain an unfair advantage (which it seems like it is).

I have 12 domains, all on the same IP address and each individual site ranks great for their individual key phrases all on their own merit. Each site is unique...the content/theme on each has nothing to do with each other (that may be the major difference from McFly's situation and my own).
All WHOIS info for all 12 of my domains are identical on this IP, so I don't see that as an issue....I see McFly's problem as selling the same type of product/duplicate content issues.
a.) Put the other sites on unique IPs, with altered/different whois info, and re-write the content on the new site to be totally unique.
b.) Scrap all the spammy duplicate sites and concentrate and building one great brand through your best indexed/trafficked URL.
Why dilute PR and traffic among 4 sites when you can have one REALLY great site?
Just my opinion.
p.s. I only referred to them as "spammy duplicate sites" because that is apparently what Google is considering them to be...but I may be wrong, obviously, since I don't know the URL and cannot test it.. Just type site:www.yourspammyduplicatesite.com into Google to see if it shows up. If those sites appear at all for that query...you have not been blacklisted, but you probably have duplicate content issues.
