I have been reading as many posts on warrior as I can about the topic in the title.
Essentially I have FIVE dog niche sites I want to point to two DOG money sites.
Currently the money sites are on seperate IP's on the same Australian Host.
The first level sites are all on a shared Hostgator account.
There seems to be a lot of conjecture about the max number of sites to host on one account, particulary if each of those sites point to one or two money sites.
I get that even having separate IPs with one Host does not guarantee that their IP numbers are far enough away from each other not to look suspicious.
Does anyone have a reasoned view or a recent quote from matt cutts or seomoz etc, that definitively states what the issue is and how to resolve it.
Yes I could host each of the five sites separately, and on separate hosts, in separate countries for a relatively small fortune (for a dog walker when I figure Australian domain costs into it etc) in money and admin time.
Is there a quick workable solution such as seohost (which has up to ten diff IPs on the one account), or will the C class issue wreck this network option?
would having three on a share network, and two on another host work? etc etc?
What are the ACTUAL tactics that you or your "friends" would use to solve this small network issue? THANKS.
PS WHAT ACTUAL HOSTS WOULD YOU SELECT AND WHAT PLANS??
