How Server Location Can Impact Rankings

This might explain why I took a hit in the SERPS (and the time lag).

Sometime last year my blog was moved to a host server in Europe and my position in the search engines fell to the second page. I also noticed a lag in performance.

Maybe it wasn’t a coincidence after all.

  1. This is the first time I ever thought of or heard of this. That would surely suck to lose rankings over your server moving locations… I guess, it’s a good idea to ask your hosting provider some questions about their future plans.

  2. That sucks on so many levels but at the same time it would be understandable for local sites and businesses but besides that it sucks.

    @Jurrell Kemp, that’s an interesting observation but Google needs to differentiate between local businesses and not penalize the rest.

  3. Hi BB,

    Are you pertaining to Google’s servers? I have 1 website that ranks well when I search on google.com.ph - which country I am located, and ranks different when I try to search on just google.com. Is that a different story?
