    Changing server effects ranking


    Changing hosting server will effects in Google ranking? Is Google giving more wattage those sites having hosting in same server from long time?
    Actually we are changed our site from one host to another just b'cos have regular server down error and now facing difficult to get the rank in Google.
    So please make comments if you already faced this type of problem.

    Thanks in advance

    Changing server wont affect rankings as such, untill the changes are very frequent..which can balcklist your site..

    learnt that from dzine.. and djstreet..

    I have done occasional changes with no bad effect.

    Moved 100's of websites in all different types of configurations... no problem what-so-ever.

    In one instance the new nameserver was entered incorrectly on a Friday and not detected under Monday [e.g. 72 hours absolutely gone]... no negative affect - well with the exception that visitors could not get to the website on the weekend... but not because the ranks weren't there.

    HOWEVER, I do know (not an empirical study) that multiple changes (5 within a year for example) WILL trigger red flags. But changing hosts is part of the game, and everyone does it, so you can't be penalised. I feel that staying on the same IP does have marginal value too.... marginal.
