Can a spammy website affect the ranking of other sites hosted on the same server?

My SEO client is using shared hosting for one of their websites. When I checked other sites hosted on their server, I found some spammy websites. Will that affect ranking of my client’s website? Remiz Rahnas, Kerala, India

How can I check which websites are also hosted on the same server as my website?

So Matt says that hosting websites on the same server/IP address doesn’t harm. What about links between those sites? If google treat them like sites on different servers, those link should be even powerfull 😉

I’m not sure why a porn site properly managed should be considered as spammy. Is the term “spammy” simply associated to anything unacceptable by some people. I’ll say site with loads of ads from affiliates like viagra,gambling etc are considered as spammy..

observation: are porn sites any more spammy than other common spam-subject sites? (viagra, bigger muscles/bewbs/etc) ? Why mention them, specifically?

Spammy porn?

There’s a market for everything these days. I thought *I* had broad tastes.

That was a great question. It was something I’ve often wondered about but never seen anything that addressed the subject until now.

@somename99 I think the general answer was “no, except in very rare unique cases” such as the 26k spammy websites on one host. That’s what I got from it anyways.

That didn’t really answer the question, “i really wouldn’t worry about that much” sounds like it will affect your clients ranking…
