    Does Changing ip Effects Domain Search Engine Rankings?

    The answer is not YES or NO :), it depends

    Changing IP has less impact on SE rankings and it can be undergone through ethical promotion in short time.Now Search engines are smart enough to find the change and to find why. You don't have to worry about it.

    But, before changing you need to check out the below conditions

    (1) your new host should not have loads of banned ip's because of spamming and you should not end up on one of those ip's, it will effect your rankings for sure

    (2) your new host should not be often down, this will definitly have an impact on your rankings, check out the uptime before you host

    (3) your new host should not ban spiders to save bandwidth, this can have an effect on search engine ranking

    Now Google offers domain name registration through Google’s Apps partnered with GoDaddy and eNom, Google users can spend $10 for a 1 year private domain registration. For now Google offer, .com, .net,.org, .biz, and .info and we can expect more to come on the line, so i believe you dont have to worry about "changing ip effet ranking" when you go for Google, you can get fresh IP :)

    Understanding Keyword Density

    Do you know why your competitor always stands TOP and some goes DOWN to END?

    Competitor who stands top all-time understands keyword density, high competitive keyword position can be attained only through proper keyword density and it can be approximately 2 - 8%.

    Some list fast and we think how they do, they stuff keywords and dont meet keyword density rule, don’t mind them as a long term competitor, they can be dropped anytime, i have noticed many.

    Try out this tool go rank which helps you to optimize websites with proper keyword density ratio

    How keyword density been calculated?

    Keyword density concerns with the ratio (%) of your keywords added within total number of indexed words within a webpage

    Keyword density in % = Targeted Keywords / total number of indexed words * 100 (within a webpage)

    Suppose, you have used keyword 10 times on your page and total number of words on your webpage is 200. So in this case 10 divided by 200 = .05

    Keyword density is referred as percentage. So we need to multiply .05 by 100 to get percentage figure

    Calculation would look like this:

    .05 x 100 = 5%

    So your page has a keyword density of 5%.

    By this you can optimize your web page effectively "matching keyword density, meeting SE algorithm rule" which brings top results on the search engines.
