I have a site with about 7000 unique users per day, it was ranking good for many keywords, i have make no changes in the site, just i bookmark the new links added in site in social bookmarking sites. i regularly add about 5 links of my site in 2 or 3 social bookmarking sites.


I have change ip address of my site on 25april and from 26april traffic get reduced by 40 - 50%, im very much worried about it, please help me to resolve the issue.

Changing the IP address should not cause any ranking problems - it happens all the time around the web and I've been involved in scores of such changes.

The timing is suspicious, however. I'd say double check your DNS and also check WebmasterTools for crawl errors and messages.

But the Domain Name System (DNS) is what maps a domain name to its IP address.

The DNS is what takes the 'human readable' domain name and 'maps' (converts) it to a 'machine readable' IP Address... In Other Words: To change IP Addresses the DNS must change. There's no way around it. When someone requests a domain name the IP Address is requested from the DNS System. To change IP Addresses the DNS must be updated to 'map' the correct domain name to the correct IP Address, so the DNS must be changed from saying example.com is at 123.123.123.123 to saying example.com is at 123.123.123.456.

Hi,

Shouldn't have an issue but here's a great article from Matt Cutts that should answer your queries.

If all you changed was your IP address it shouldn't have caused any problem in routing dns back to you.

It's been a long time since I've considered this problem so this might not even be true BUT I'll suggest that perhaps his new IP address belonged to a previous owner that was involved in shady practices? I really don't think that's it and some other thing is causing your problem but I'll suggest it if you're convinced the problem is the IP change. Good luck.
