I currently implement a domain mapping system through wordpress which has several domain names on the same ip-address however the domains are not related eg. not subdomians.

I was wondering, if Google or other search engines will perceive each site as independent.


Does anyone have any other tips regarding domain mapping and SEO?

There are several threads on this topic.

Shared IP addresses are the norm in shared hosting services (which is how the majority of websites are hosted). On a typical shared server, there could be dozens of domains (even hundreds, at some of the lower-end hosting providers) on a single server, single IP address, and Google doesn't treat those domains as though they're all one huge website.


Unless you're seriously cross-linking among your websites -- in which case, Google is more likely to see them as related -- you probably don't need to worry about it.

I have run multiple WordPress domains off one installation.  The only real issue for SEO is that you're working off the same database and hosting accounts (unless you have a very unusual configuration) so whatever goes wrong with one domain tends to go wrong for all of them.  Any technical issues that might interfere with crawling and indexing thus affect the whole group of sites, so you need to monitor closely and fix problems quickly.
