Does Server Location Matter?
Posted 25 May 2009 - 07:52 AM
Recently, it has been suggested to me that because most of my customers are in the UK, I am suffering lower page rankings and lower search engine position for keyword searches because TCH servers are all located in the USA. Can this be right? Do I really have to move away to another host to get better search result placings?
I thought the internet was more open than that and that the geographic location of the server was irrelevant?
Anyone have knowledge, thoughts or advice on this, please?

I am continuing to look into this, but it seems there may be some foundation to the location of servers being pertinent to search results.
