This is a question I’ve been curious about for awhile now. I’ve always had my websites hosted with Media Temple, which is US based.

How much would that impact the SEO of a website compared to a similar one hosted in Australia? Is the location of the server the issue, or would it be because a website hosted on a quality Australian server would fractionally quicker to access than one on a US server?

Hi pmullen,
Location of the server is a signal but NOT a definitive one. What is your TLD? If it’s a .com.au then you don’t need to worry about it as gTLD overrides server locale.
Besides Google now knows that many companies use sophisticated server structures which might be located in a different country.
