Free blog hosting service is useful?

Mon Nov 14, 2011 9:19 am

I am using BlogSpot, wordpress, blog dot com and many other free blog hosting websites…, but search engines not showing much these websites in search results… I have to know that search engine prefer the free blog hosting services in search results? This service is beneficial for promoting a website or not?

Self-hosted is always better than the free services.

I suggest you to select paid hosting rather than free hosting. If you still required free than I would suggest to select wordpress. I like wordpress on because of plugins and support.

I use free blogger hosting and search engine always show my page - new posts on the list in Google. I don't have this kind of problem. So maybe is not depend complete on type of hosting but level of content.

I agree always use your own hosting for your website BUT I use the free blogs to backlink my key website. I link RSS to the free blogs, and repurpose the articles occasionally.

I like to suggest you paid hosting than free one..though search engines accept the blogspot sites but it wont get any PR..when You host yourself it would be helpful for promotion...try it out...

Paid web hosting is much better than free service, although wordpress is a good choice too, I consider it secure and effective, to make sure that your website's appear in serp, make sure to use effective techniques in driving traffic to your website.

Yes, they are useful but they have their own limit too, you can't expect much from them as you don't have control, your blog may be deleted as well, if blogspot admin thinks that you are using for promotion or earning purposes, however you are safe if you are using Adsense.

I agree, you must use own hosting. It's not a choice for "elite bloggers", it's a reasonable choice since you can control many factors this way and don't have limits in setups, plugins, and codes you want to use in your blog.
