IP's contiguous or not
for theming sake

Just trying to decide whether I want to switch over from many different hosts to a dedicated server with a cluster of ip's.

Having everything on one server would sure make life easier, but a little more expensive.

One main concern I have is whether SE's actually look at the whois record (for my theming purposes) . If the dedicated server has contiguous ip's it would be pretty easy to determine that these sites are from the same person (entity). Having them spread out over different hosts and in different names would seem to show the SE's that the sites are relevant as they are coming from different ip's etc.

To sum up, are there any pluses or minuses for having contiguous ip's to establish themes?

Anyone have any experience, knowledge or thoughts on this?

Thanks

sorry for the belated reply.

I try to break up the ip's if the host setup will allow it. Even then, it is pretty easy for someone to look it up on a Arin whois.

To be on the safe side, when I've done the 3,4 c blocks I've had over the years, I skip every other one when setting up new sites atleast until I've forced to do otherwise.
