Here are 4 ways web hosting affects your Search Engine ranking
Believe it or not, your web hosting affects search engine ranking. Google wants to provide its users with a better experience, so Google rewards web sites that it believes are better. Some of what Google cares about are:
1) Always-on SSL – Google ranks secure connection https higher than non-secure http (this was new in 2014)
2) Longer registration of your domain – Domain name expiration should be 5 or more years into the future. Google believes this indicates stability of your organization.
3) Faster page loads, better uptime – Google rewards better hosting (faster page load, better uptime)
4) Server location – Google gives more weight to web sites hosted in the same country as the user search query. Where-in-the-world is your megastore web host server physically located?
