Ranking #1 but need to move host!
What to do?

 11:26 am on Oct 19, 2006 (gmt 0)

We have a site that is currently listed as #1 on Google for very competitive keywords and has been on top for almost 8 years.

After doing some FTP to the host account I noticed a Trojan inside one of our directory folders.

Now we need to consider moving onto a dedicated server with a different host as this site is our bread & butter. Currently the site is on a shared server with 8,000 other sites.

My question is will there be a big risk to our rankings if we move server & IP? Are there specific steps I should take to help keep our rankings safe?

A move to a new host, with a new IP address but the same domain name, should not endanger your rankings at all. If you want to feel extra comfortable, follow Matt Cutts instructions here:
