I saw this in the news today:

"Although it's less expensive to locate them in the U.S.," explained President of Cyber Host Pro, Chris Danks, "virtually all of the companies whose web sites we host are based in the UK or Europe. With the servers now located here, they'll start to get much better results from Google and other searches."
Danks explained that one of the criteria search engines use in ranking search results is the IP address of the Web site. If the server hosting the site is in the U.S., it will have a U.S. IP address and the first search results will be geographically skewed to North America.

Ias this for real?

Hi Sandy,

Search engines do use the IP as ONE of the algorithms when ranking/returning search results, that said there are many other factors that the search engines take into consideration when returning natural search engine results.

I recommend making sure you have your geographical location within your contact us page/form as this can help identify where your business is located.

I have seen that I rank on some terms in asia that I am not even in the top 1000 in the US. When I've dug into this, it is because the links to my site are from that part of the world. So, yes, I've seen first hand how IP location (geo) has an impact on rankings in different parts of the world.

That is mostly right. If you are based in UK and want to get higher rank in google.co.uk, hosting in UK is one of the things that should help.

We use Hostgator & bluehost for website hosting because they use US server.
