Top 20 Google tips #16 - Google cares where you hosted!  

Posted on 16 January 2018

In his 16th tip, Clive Loseby from Access by Design explains the importance of making sure your website is hosted in the Country from what you are based!


Hi I'm Clive Loseby from Access by Design and I'm here today to talk to you about 20 things you need to know about your website and Google in 2017 (& 2018!).

Number 16: Google cares where you are hosted!

If you host with GoDaddy actually Google thinks you're in Sweden because that's where they host There's other places where you'll be hosting, in America, all sorts of far-flung places

The problem with that is if your business is in this country, in the UK and you're not hosted (here), we have a bit of an issue and Google will have a bit of an issue.

Very very simple.

Whoever you host with, make sure they are hosted in the country in which you do your business whether that is the UK, France, America whatever; because Google knows where you are hosted and it can find that out that information in a nanosecond.

Thank you.
