Does My Website’s IP Address
Affect My Site’s Ranking?
Matt Cutts, Google’s SEO guy, weighs in on how Google looks at sites that share a webhost with spammers.
“Can the hosting company’s reputation (having a lot of spammy sites) influence my site’s ranking in search results?”
Notice that he mentioned free hosts? We still see more than a little of this and it’s one of many reasons we just recommend not even attempting to go the free host route.
Best of luck in your search engine optimization endeavors!
