Changing IP affect SEO?

We are in the process of changing the website to new IP. Does this have any impact in the SEO? If so what may be done for damage control.

IP benefits the ranking in the country where the IP is based. For eg: website hosted on US web server will rank high in US as compared to other countries.

Google search engine counts unique IPs so it will be very effective way of promotion.

If you are asking about changing the IP address of existing site then yes, it will affect SEO of your site only if the location of server is changed.

For an eg. your site is currently hosted in US and you buy hosting from UK then the UK IP address will affect your rankings and you will get better results in Google UK than US.

I don't think it will have any effect on your site's ranking.

i agree with kamleon as i dont think it will affect seo.

seo should recognize the domain name instead.

It does--make sure you have a host with an IP address in the same country/area you are targeting for SEO

I don't think it really effect your site. Google tends to give rank based on url, not ip

This is true URL is very important but so is the web host. I've seen .co.uk websites that are hosted in the US rank very well on Google.COM and not rank anywhere on Google.co.uk

What is also important is the location (IP) and the URL of the links that are pointing at your site.

If you are moving to ip address which was previously used by a "spammer" and blacklisted, you will negatively affect.
Then IP address location is also important. If your site is in USA and you are getting a IP located in Australia , you .com ranking will get affected.

How do I find out about that?

I mean if I am moving to a new IP, how can I check if it was used by a spammer and is blaklisted now?

I dont think theres any way to find that out but Ive never heard of someone having a new website or new host and then getting a blacklisted IP. If you do have one you will know right away because your site won't be ranked at all in which case you can request a new IP from your host.

yes ! If you want to change host server (It means change IP address) then its really effective on website ranking which is a most effective part of SEO.
If your site is in India based and you are getting a IP located in USA , then your .in ranking will get affected.

Thanks

I don't think it will affect much..

I think it will effect the seo in the beginning if you change the ip.But it will be okay for normal SERP in future.

Very little..especially if the countries IP is not changing... If you are doing SEO it is even actually better to have different IPs building links

Check out http://www.mxtoolbox.com/ and enter the details. I once had my mail server on an old website Blacklisted and had to go through the whole process of getting off the list. We subsequently moved the hosting three times and it never affected our SEO and rankings for keyword. As long as you keep the hosting in the same country and check the MX records, you should be alright.
