Unique IP addresses are not nearly as important as they used to be many, many years ago. There are also hundreds of different ways a site can trigger a penalty and/or filter that will impact Google rankings.

Do you think your sites are penalized?
Can you describe more about your situation?

Dear Moderator,

Thanks for the reply. I am so glad that you took your useful time to read and answer my question.

No I don't think my sites are penalized till now but one of my colleague told me if you make more than 1 comment and put the links to the different sites containing same ip hosting address your both the sites will hampered. Because my colleague sites and my sites are hosting in same server and having same ip address and they told me I can't put my link on the site where their links are already present.

I just want to know is it really hampering the sites or because of jealousy they are saying this.

Please help me i am getting confuse. Thanks

Are you talking about making comments on someone else's blog as a way to improve Google rankings for your sites?

You can get hit if you are interlinked and have same adsense/analytics account.

Google does not like when websites artificially inflate their link popularity. Google often devalues links that they feel are cheating.

I would not recommend submitting all of your websites to any blog post you find.

#1 - Blog posts are generally deep pages with little link value to pass along.

#2 - The more sites you submit the more the link value is spread out and reduced per link.

#3 - Blogs often use nofollow tag on all comment links which devalues the link.

#4 - Google looks for quality signals and only targeting blog posts will not gain you quality signals.

Thank you Moderator for the reply. Is what I have understood from your reply is. Blog having high OBL will decrease the value of the link to the websites. But not affect any damage to the websites.

If a web page only has only 1 outbound link and it goes to your friend, then your friend has 100% of the link juice. If you add your link to that page, then the link power is divided between the two sites. In a way you are damaging your friend's site by decreasing the percentage of link power going to his site and diverting some of it to you.

Since we are talking about blog posts, I would not worry about it. Even if you do not add your link to the page, it is likely other webmasters will add their link to the blog post so the link power is probably being divided multiple ways. Blog posts typically have little link power. It is like fighting over breadcrumbs.

My site is the only site hosted on one unique IP in a dedicated server and still got hit.

Thank you moderator, thanks for the help. Now I have understood. do you know any tools to check the penalty of the sites. please let me know.

Thank You in advance
