I just got a dedicated server (in the US), but the IP is registered in Germany.

Now, I'm in the US, my site caters to mostly US visitors, the server is in NYC, but the IP is German...

Could this affect search results?

assuming you are using .com you will be fine.

We have had problems over here using .com on a german ip and they only appear in the US and German Google Serps, with no sign of them in the UK Serps.

If it's good enough to rank in the www.com results you will not have a problem, however some other SE's are offering just US results and then you will have a problem since you will not be viewed as US based.

The new MSN has skewed things terribly and is all over the place however Altavista does offer this on the search bar.

IMO this is going to be offered more and more and we shall all be chasing around for geo-targeted hosting.

What do you think?

Great new business opportunity for the host that can!
