Why Shared Web Hosting is Bad for SEO – Google IP Blacklist

    I know this is an old post, but just as a source of correction … your statement “Although my experiences were specific to “SEO hosting”, ” is incorrect.

    Your experience was specific to “SHARED SEO HOSTING” — a completely different animal than SEO hosting.

      Why is it a different animal? Let’s image you sign up to non-shared SEO hosting today. Yes’ they’ll give you a dedicated server and the resources won’t be shared, but IP addresses that they allocate to you will most likely have been used before. If you’re using IP addresses that have been used by someone else before, you inevitably take a risk.

    So do things like Twitter and Reddit now count as SEO?
    I was told they help because of the Penguin Google algorithm refresh
    Added a post on Facebook, hope you dont mind

      Social signals may count but there’s no concrete evidence. Reddit counts if you can get DoFollow links. Not sure how this question is related to this blog post though?

    Hosting matters because if you website is down due to server bandwidth then you website can be a bad crawling that can harm your ranking dear.
