Looking for suggestion on the best packages for multiple class c IP UK packages
Saw this recommended somewhere else (can't remember). Not used it myself but was going to try it some point soon...
To raise an old debate - why 'Class C'?
I think it's generally accepted as the "minimum effective dose" for representing diversity - with Class B or A being overkill - providing greater flexibility for site inter-linking.
I might be wrong (normal) but I think the 'Big G" is wise to class 'C' stuff...
I agree it's something that they would factor in but also think it would depend on the scale and overall diversification of the back link profile as to what would trip a penalty - or at the least negate any benefit from the links.
I was considering using the above package on such a small scale (interlinking only a handful of related domains) that doing it on the same IP would probably not be a problem - but was looking at an extra shared hosting account and for that price it's an extra layer of diversity for the cost of a regular shared account (plus the domains have protected whois).
Depending on how many class c packages you are after you might be better off just buying a few cheap hosting packages from a variety of UK hosts - tso host, krystal etc
Most SEO Hosting companies seem to get shocking reviews for downtime etc
I think that if you're serious about just a small handful, it will work. For a wider network, there's much more to do. Search posts by 'Dougs'.
Class C is absolutely meaningless. Google can see the sites are hosted on the same AS# and have the same nameservers.
As said above, just purchase lots of different accounts from different companies if you really believe this will help your SEO.
Well that's nonsense Darren...
Are you telling me that google devalues the links of an isp like 123-reg that hosts hundreds of thousands of sites purely on the nameservers?
Different C-Blocks are regarded by pretty much every single SEO expert to be an important factor with incoming links..
I use heartinternet as they have 3 or 4 c-blocks and unlimited hosting - if you don't like the IP you get - remove the hosting account and try again.
