    I hope someone can clarify this:

    If you have "virtual hosting" whereby a number of sites with different domain names share the same IP address, does this affect your ability to get all the sites listed in search engines? -- i.e. do some SEs block different sites with the same IP?

    Thanks

    They probably would if you told the SE to index 206.133.16.11 (say that's a shared IP) but if you told them to index freekoolstuff.tld (random domain) which is hosted on the above shared IP there should be no problem.

    I can speak from experiance here. If you do the IP Address who knows what will get listed. But by simplygoing by the domain, no no problems will be encountered.
