    Hey there,
    Yea, sounds funny, but I was using free hosting for my micro niche. Do you think seo depends a lot on hosting speed. Site with 1.9k usa monthly went from 44 to 81 position in few days.

    Thanks

    I don't know how much important it is, but everybody says it does so maybe you should stop using a free host if you really want to rank.

    site speed and reliability (uptime) is a major factor nowadays, so you would definitely want to have a stable and fast hosting!

    Pagespeed does affect it from what I've seen. That said I have one site hosted on a free host with a pagespeed of 92/100 that ranks just fine, but I believe this is not the norm for free hosts.

    Maybe it's not a major factor, but if your site is really slow, google and your visitors won't like it.
    Fast loading site is a basis of success.

    Paid would surely be better as speed and bandwidth really matters. When you plan to purchase go for hostgator, it surely is a better service and better support too...

    most important is uptime rather than open speed and even most important is to have a dedicated ip.

    If you have same ip with some else site and other site receive penalty it will just your rankings too

    I have talked with many people about this question, but I think the hosting speed is not so major factor, but you need it if you don't want angry visitors.
