Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Unfortunately we have to shift our web hosting server from Dubai to USA/UK, our main targeted market is Dubai/UAE and we rank higher on Google.ae for a long time. We are also dealing internationally but the more targeted market is UAE.
how much risk would be here if we move from Dubai to USA or UK, I personally think that we will face a drop but after a while we can recover it by getting some more good links from UAE related sites (and as we have lots of already).
What’s your opinion regarding this risk?
Will we loss our ranking for ever or …… what suggestion would you give?
*my site is a .com one (TLD)*
many thanks in advance
If you are concerned about the "pages from United Arab Emirates" search, you may lose that traffic after the move. But those "from the country" searches are still strange, so who knows?
I think it’s not necessary to have server in the specific country for “the web” results, it just need relevancy. There are lots of sites which are hosted in US but come in “the web” results from other countries as well …… so our site gets 80% of traffic from UAE and have lots of content and back links related to UAE, I think it should be removed in “the web” result.
But still not sure, let see what does Google do, I will let you know with this experiment once I got the result.
