Change IP and DNS

Post by Karn Tan »

I moved my sites from on server to another, that includes ip and nameserver changes of cause, but a few days after that I see my rankings fall on many google servers as if we where in a update, also lower page count when I do a site:domain search.
Now It has been 2 weeks, everyday the visits gets a little less and rankings are not good on all google servers.
:?: Anyone please advice?????

guinanie, that is absolutely untrue and can mislead the users. Please guys don't give advices if you're not positive about what you're talking about.

A change in DNS and IP shouldn't have any negative impact on your rankings if you do it properly. Unlike guinanie I can document what I say: http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/moving-to-a-new-web-host/

It might be that your new IP is banned by Google for someone that used it before you or is currently using it at the same server and spammed. Ask your hosting company to give you a new IP. Most hosting companies will allow you to buy a dedicted IP for additional fee. If not, they may have another server they can move you to that has a different IP. If not, change your hosting completly and see if your rankings come back.

What is your site and IP address? You can also do reverse IP check at domaintools.com to see who else is being hosted at that IP. If you see a lot of spammy sites at that IP, then it is probably the reason and you should move even if it is not the reason, but there are spammy sites on the server.

No effect its just an IP and not the domain.

Change of the IP and DNS Server should not affect SERP of your site. To be sure the new server work properly 7*24.

other issues with your site

i visited the IP address you stated and found that this domain name: huahinresort.info shows up no backlings in Google. I would suggest that you get some inbound links and do some directory submissions.

Also, does Google support your language? I would say that it is better to have an English version and your language version and keep to one language per site page / version. Having the home page in mixed languages is a bit confusing for site users who don't understand both (me being one of them!)
