Change in hosting cause droped SE rankings

by 14 comments
I had website hosted on 1&1 hosting, I create this website almost 1 year ago and it was doing good with SE rankings but after 1 year I transferred website to Godaddy where I had few other websites hosted as well.

Problem is that after changing hosting I see downfall in ranking of my website. For example I have attached screenshot of Google webmaster showing detail of 1 keyword.

Is this downfall due to change in hosting ?
Should I move my website back to 1&1 hosting to improve my ranking OR ranking will improve on Godaddy hosting after some time ?
Which hosting company is best for SEO with economical rates ?

Detailed answer from experts will be appreciated.

    What is the timeframe on that graph above? A week? A month? A year?

    Change of hosting should not have much effect. You can wait some more time and probably this could be the time of the year when all the traffic go down.

      Yes, I think I should wait for some more time.

      I have another website hosted on same Godaddy hosting which was giving back link to this website, may be this is cause ?

    What it looks like is your ranking moved from fluctuating between 2 and 3 to between 3 and 4. Basically, you lost one spot. Anything could trigger a ranking move of one spot.

    I would say it is probably just a coincidence that it coincided with a hosting change.

      Yes, its just the difference of 1 or 2 rank position but you know CTR decreases highly with this change.

    Don't worry if you have changed the hosting. I would like to tell you that first of all you can due again off page SEO. if you are done off page SEO and create more and more back link after months and two months you will see that more traffic are shifte again.


    ThankYou
