    Why is it important to know your IP Address for SEO?


    Yesterday I was going thru a forum post where it was mentioned that it is important to know IP Adress for proper SEO? I really do not know the reason as to why this is important!! So I thought to post it in this Forum.

    I hope to here for you guys
    Thanks!

    I have no idea. I am ranked on the first page for a good number of my keywords and have never used my IP address for anything other than setting up FileZilla (FTP upload program).

    I don't know if knowing it makes any difference. But I heard having a dedicated IP helps.

    IP is used for geolocation purposes..and about shared and dedicated IP's they are treated just the same (though there are some advantages for using a unique one)

    It's part of the web site's identity, therefore it is important IMO
