ARIN Announces no more IPs?
I have the link to the press release what does this mean for

 4:22 pm on Aug 30, 2000 (gmt 0)

To the best of my knowledge a good practice in submitting domains to search engines is having each domain have its own IP. With the announcement by ARIN ([arin.net ])
I am not sure how we are going to deal with many domains having the same IP.

What happens if 30 URLs have the same IP and one of them upsets the search engines? If that IP is banned, out goes 30 domains?

I am very interested in everyone's comments.

The se's will be forced to go to domain name usage only. There just won't be any other way to do it logically.

True, but for nw they lag behind - which (potentially) puts us all in a bad way.
AV, you listening?

I was very much expecting this much, the way IP addresses were misused. Many companies who were providing unlimited IP's and their users were abusing it everyday.

I think this is a good stand. At least from hosting point of view.

However it will be interesting to see, how the laws for SPAM, methods of search engine rankings and user customisation is affected due to this change.

Thanx Jlara for posting this article.

Well I for one would think that this would be great If the SE's Play ball and only if they play ball.

try $5 per IP Per month * 200 domains :o( I would enjoy to be able to place 10-30 domains to one IP hehehe BIG SAVINGS. But that would all depend on the SE's

This is just my 2 cents

I see no difference in my rankings between domains that are multi-homed [in the hundreds] or single IP, except at AV where I have a banned domain, sites that share the IP get buried in the 90's - 100's.

I've noticed this too NFFC, but I also know that if you switch IP's your rankings can go up (which seems like contradictory evidence). I was beginning to think that AV has stopped all that nonsense.
