I recently switched from a shared ip to a deciated IP and noticed that for some searches the ip address is being indexed and returned before my www. page in some cases. I am concerned that this will result in a duplicate content issue. Any recommendations?

I am on a shared host with windows server and an h-sphere panel.

Any recommendations?

It sounds like your content is accessible using your ip addresss directly. This is not the right thing to do. If a visitor enters

http:// 0.1.2.3/foo

then you should redirect them (preferably with a '301 Moved Permanently' header) to your correct address at

http://www.example.com/foo

rather than just serving the content. Talk to your server administrator to get this set up right.

Do a 301 Permanent Redirection to avoid split of PR as well as you would be in the safe hands of Google.

I had a similar situation last year. When you changed servers your host most likely did not remove your old account.

You need to do a couple of things immediately.

1. Make sure the shared account has been completely removed and verify it by following the IP domain name URLs in the index.

2. Submit a URL removal request using the IP as the domain name [128.1.1.1...] & [128.1.1.1...] to:

[services.google.com:8882...]

Good luck!

What is the syntax for this 301 redirect?

Well, I don't know that I would go willy-nilly issuing redirects if I was sharing an IP address with other domains -- how do you know which domain the request was for. OTOH, I guess it won't hurt for you to redirect. If the server is configured correctly, you'll probably never actually get any such requests; if it's not, then there's already a mess and you're not making it that much worse.

It occurs to me that I don't know why Google is willing to list bogus domain names such as this.

Is it Windows or Unix?

To me this is old news. Virtual servers or dedicated servers.

What about your directories within?

That's what counts. Google will analize your page, if ok then another page.

Just cause you have a dedicated IP will not help if you are looking for your site to show up high.
What is the connection of your page b..or c or d?

Then what's your homepage about? Virtual server or dedicated is not part of the math problem.

Search engines are smarter than that. (well not MSN right now).

Original Content = #*$!? nOPE!

Be original oR prove it.\
If you don't have a cancer cure then do not even talk to me about your bull#*$! biz.

SuddenlySara ....

You seem to be a bit off topic.
