GEO Hosting and SEO Rankings UPDATE
Monday, November 19, 2007
A few weeks ago we posted a piece on how GEO hosting may affect your SEO rankings. Well interestingly enough today as I was going through the Indexing Guideline for Microsoft's search product Live Search, I came across the following:

About hosting your site in a different market

You might host your site in a different location than your target market. Note that if your site is located in a different market, your site may rank much lower in your target market's search results than it does in your local market's search results.

Live Search uses information such as the website's IP address and the country or region code top-level domain to determine a website's market and country or region. You can alter this information to reflect the market that you want to target.

This is interesting as this is the first time that a search engine has admitted that GEO hosting may affect your rankings.
