Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
Could the provider of my T1 have a negative affect on my rankings in google, or any other search engine for that matter?
I have a site that has been online nearly four years (I'll sticky anyone interested in knowing what the site is) and it receives very little traffic from google. I tried many things over the past few years to increase traffic but to no avail. Nothing I've tried seems to work. Each time traffic starts to increase it seems to drop back to nothing within a few weeks.
I run my site in my home on a T1 provided by Speakeasy and I can't help but wonder if this may have something to do with my problems. Since Speakeasy offers inexpensive DSL lines on the same network with static ip's I would think this could be a haven for spammers and it's possible the search engines may think this also and penalize a site on the Speakeasy network.
Any expert opinions, ideas, or help would be appreciated.
