as far as I understood it yet,
* backlinks from your own page have a certain value,
* while backlinks with a similar IP but different domain should be better
and of course
* completely different IP would be best.
Could anyone quantify this (at least a little), as in "much better" or "similar" or...
The thing is that I'm thinking about having a second site and would link to my first site, They are in one regard related.
Just buying a new domain name and hosting the site on my same space as the first site would be cheapest, but the IP would be a neighborhood IP, wouldn't it?
So I wonder if I should go with a different provider? Or isn't the back link value THAT much reduced with a similar IP?
SEO in principle isn't difficult at all, for me the difficulty is to trade one thing against the other when I have to decide, as no one can really quantify the ranking factors with numbers (or can someone? :) )
