Does the IP address of incoming links effect the value of the link? If I have several incoming links to my website from other sites with unique domain names, however, because they happen to be hosted by the same web host on the same server, they all have the same IP address, will the fact that they have the same IP affect the value of those links? To be clear these are incoming links from outside websites, not links from other pages of my website or other sites of mine.
And, if the IP address does effect the value of the links, how different does an IP address have to be to prevent this?
I've been searching all around and can't seem to find a specific answer for this.
