Multiple websites on a single server (IP)

I have a network of blogs hosted on a single server. I do interlink the blogs using a simple blogroll section which lists down all my blogs and I have placed this on the home page of all my blogs. The links do not have a 'nofollow' attribute.

I am a bit concerned as Google might consider this as link spamming and penalize me.



All my blogs have unique content and apart from the interlinking they are mentioned on popular blogs and websites as well.

Google is more likely to devalue the positive benefit of those links instead of penalizing you and applying a negative value to those links. Just make sure that this interlinking is not your main source of link juice. Go out and develop unique links for each blog.

What is your external linking strategy for these sites?

Link strategy is plain content nothing special. Some of our blogs have been Slashdotted, Reddited and Digged apart from that they come up on popular blogs like Gizmodo, Engadget etc.

You mean I should not interlinking to my own blogs?

If they are on the same subject I would not.

They are all on different topics. Its just that they have the same IP so I feel Google might de-prioritize the links or plainly deindex them.

There's no risk of having multiple sites on the same IP, as long as you aren't doing anything sketchy. For example, 100s of low quality sites on the same IP might raise a red flag for potential spam.

As for interlinking the blogs, site-wide dofollow links won't really hurt you (unless you're pointing to a spam site), but Google heavily devalues those links in my experience, so there's little benefit SEO-wise. They can be beneficial for users though.

This is the last thing in the world I would worry about right now.

I have seen hosted servers running 1500 web sites from the same IP number. That was on servers used by one of the largest hosting companies in the country. So how would that rate in the simple simon conditions that Google employs?
