My website is on shared hosting having approx 300 domains, few months back rankings were good but now dropping day by day.

Does dedicated IP have any advantage in search rankings?

I didnt noticed an advantage of dedicated IP. Also, as a rumor, i know that bad (adult, spam) sites hosted on same VPS could be a disadvantage, but i do not think that, theoretically.

Maybe you are affected by Panda, probably they use user behaviour from Chrome data or click back to search results, to soon after user enter on site.

I just searched for a headline on one of my websites to check it has been indexed... it has, but it has been indexed at another domain that is hosted on the same VPS.

For example the correct link is...


The incorrect link that has been indexed is...


I was hit on September 4th and this has now given me something else to research about to see if it is a factor.

Never had this problem before and no DNS changes have been made.
