Dedicated or shared IP address

1 Comment »

Still many folks think that you need a dedicated IP for each site to gain the best SEO rankings. Unfortunately not.  It’s not nice to interlink your own sites for better rankings (so does google say).  You may however get different IPs from different IP blocks so that when a bad IP or IP  blocks get blacklisted by some search engine your IP is not in that range.

No Comments »

User-Agent: msnbot
Crawl-Delay: 10
