(Kindly direct me to right link if the answer is already given, as I could not find it)
I have two websites (A & B) that fall in the same category. The content on both sites is different. However, I realized that Google is rewarding only website B and in spite of adding more content on site A, it does not pick up. Rather, its SERPs are down with time, however, site A is rewarded and growing.
Then I learned on Twitter (a discussion between John Muller and others) that Google may choose to reward only one website if multiple sites fall on the same category on the same IP.
So, I transferred website A on the new host with different IP and relatively fast hosting. The content is the same as on the previous host.
The question is: Will Google take this change and start to consider site A at its own (totally independent of site B). Do I need to make any other changes to remove that "Tag" e.g. Whois info or any other thing? And how long it should take?
After three months, I saw no change in traffic, though there is no significant Google update happened or reported here.
