Thread: Linking from site on same IP

  1. #1

    Linking from site on same IP

    I am still a little unclear on the effects of linking to a site from another site on the same IP address.

    Like if I am hosting two sites on the same shared hosting package, site A is old and has good PR and site B is brand new. If I link from site A to site B, will that have a positive effect on site B? or will it have no effect / negative effect on both sites?

    IMHO and from my own experience it will help, though not as much as if you were getting a link from that same site if it was on a different IP.

    Thanks for asking this, I was wondering the same thing. My girlfriend and I use the same IP and I wanted to do links with our sites eventually. Luckily we have a dynamic I.P address. XD

    We're talking about the server IP, not the home user IP And like Shenron says, every backlink counts, but if it uses the same IP it has less value.

    So it wouldn't hurt to do it I guess.

    What about if both sites are linking to each other, or 10 sites all linking to each other all on the same IP? Anyone have any experience with the big G penalizing for this?

  6. In my experience it has negative effect. At least it did a few years ago, although back then I have crosslinked around 8 sites. It resulted in a huge SERPs drop. What I know is that with blogs (blogger) it is different, there you can gain PR5 in a month of time with backlinks from other blogs.

    Now that's a different story, I never interlink more than 3-4 sites, or else you can risk a lot of Red flags.
    1 or 2 sites is perfectly safe and it will help you, but just like everything else, if you push it too hard G will get down on you.

  8. Makes sense, Shenron!

  9. I generally don't link amongst sites that are on the same IP address or even on the same class C block of IPs.
    Need links? Try AuthorLinks where you can buy or sell links based on Authorship and Klout score. Check out my blog or like me on Facebook.

    I don't think it has a negative effect, if you have 100 sites and your own, shared, vps with one ip, why being penalized for exchange links between your own websites if they are in the same niche, is something very normal to exchange links between your websites, and promote your own websites, because you work more and have more websites, it is a network of websites...
