incoming links from your own website?

Our company owns about 100 websites, currently all hosted on the same server. If we moved some of them to a new server would they pass link equity? Or would the SERPS recognize that they're from the same umbrella company?

Also, if moving to new servers slows down each site, is it worthwhile?

100 websites is quite a lot. Is the content unique on all of them? If some of them were put on a new server they may pass more link equity, but Google would still know that they are owned by one company, so may discount the links.

If moving servers slows down the sites, then this may well annoy your visitors.

yes, the content is unique on all of them, but the products are often (not always) the same. We don't try to hide that the sites are related- they all look quite similar.

Thanks for the help!

Is it true that Google does not like to put two listing of the same website on the sampe results page?

If that is so and it determines that several sites are unnaturally linked can it assume that they all belong to the same company and place only one of them in the top ten results?

If you mean that Google shouldn't put two listings from ONE SITE on the SERPS, that's not true- Google DOES double list in the form of indented listings.

If you're asking whether 2 sites from the same company can be on the 1st page, this is also possible, I've had success in getting even 3 sites from our company on the 1st page for various terms.
