Same C block IP with a bad site causes my new site being punished

 4:36 pm on Sep 15, 2011 (gmt 0)

I have new site which has been punished since it's using the same C block IP to a "bad" site and the "bad" site used to link my new site. (link has already been removed)

If I change the IP address (different C block) of this new site, will Google reconsider my new site's ranking?

Thank you!

Who is the owner of the "bad site"? I think the problem is they are connected.

I'm the owner of the "bad" site, but I'm sure the new site is 100% meet the Google guideline, but it still got punished since the link from the bad site and the "same IP block" reason.

Do you think it will help if I change the IP of my new site? Or I should simply drop this domain and get a new one?

First thing to do is not try gaming the system out of the Box. This is a problem being the owner of the "bad Site" and linking to other sites you own. They get connected and bring a harder look at all the sites you own.

Me I would start over and do it the right way it is called Hard Work. The SE's have gotten way smarter than most new comers think and it usually ends up with this type of post.

thinkoutofthebox, how do you know you're being punished for this?

and as class C adresses havnt been used for a long time on the internet :-) why would having an ip adress close to another one be a problem.

I could shareing an ipadress could be a problem if the two sites shared a conection link, whois and posibly AS number

I'm considering to take the whole site down (i.e. make the whole site HTTP 404 and use robots.txt to block SEs) and register a brand new domain with the SAME CONTENT.

But I was wondering, will Google consider my new site is a scraper site of my old site and punished it then? Since they're using the same content even I have took my old site down?

There's certainly a chance - also a good chance that Google will have the content "on file" forever and attached the new site to you all over again. There's no predicting something like that. It either flies or it doesn't.
