Im interested to find out what peoples opinions are on moving a .com from a US to UK hosting IP address in 2010.
I realise there is Google webmastertools but i dont like this very much or trust it.
I would like to find out if anyone has any direct experience (testing) with this subject and what the effects were.
Im a little concerned (since the site gets most of its traffic from a US audience) that traffic and rankings will drop. I know this used to be the case because I tested it a few years ago (in 2008), but im wondering is it still the case in 2010. Do Google still aggressively use IP hosting location to form assumptions about ranking on .com addresses.
