Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
The majority of our traffic comes from Google. I don't want to mess with this at all.
I need to find a new hosting provider.
Is moving the website offshore to a new country a good idea? I know I can set the country in GWT.
Have you moved your site to a host another country? Did your Google traffic suffer as a result?
If anyone has had a negative experience in a situation like this, please share.
I moved my (.co.uk) blog to US hosting with no effect, and I set up a .lk for someone else on the same US hosting which is ranking fine for its (admittedly VERY niche) search terms with no SEO effort at all.
However, I am wondering about whether it might make the site slightly less responsive. Given that there is a lot of transatlantic bandwidth, I think that the quality of the hosting probably makes more difference, but if anyone has experience that says otherwise, please tell us!
