I recently addressed the community to understand why normal images are being filtered by Google Image Search.

I have several sites placed on the same server (and that they all definitely share the same IP address) and one of those sites has Adult content on it. I am now assuming that the filtering problem might be caused by the fact that the generic site shares the same IP address as the adult site.

If I remove the adult site from being hosted or from this IP address, will it solve my filtering problem for the rest of my sites? What else can I do besides the removal of mentioned adult site from that IP address?

Just removing the adult site from that IP address won't cause your images to start popping up immediately in normal image search results.

A better option would be to maybe move the normal sites to a different IP address and let the Adult site sit on that IP address.

It is possible that the IP address has been marked as being a host for Adult content and it may take a while for that status to change.
