    So I'm about to build some Tier1 properties and was just thinking about which web2.0s I'm going to use.
    Are there any I should avoid?

    I remember there was a guy in a thread saying that weebly is shit for SEO purposes. Unfortunately I haven't saved the thread url, nor do I remember his argumentation.
    Are there any you would recommend / would NOT recommend?

    Here are some I liked to use in the past:
    tumblr.com
    wordpress.com
    blogspot.com
    own-free-website.com
    blog.fc2.com

    Some more I'm considering this time:
    edublogs.com
    wix.com
    yola.com
    webstarts.com
    jimdo.com
    jigsy.com

    That explains why someone said it's bad for SEO.
    And yeah, I totally forgot about wordpress.com in my list. I also forgot blogspot :D
    Thanks!

    If you have an old weebly its good, they just been getting slammed so they're doing that. So ya, don't register and create new ones when there are dozens of better ones out there but if you've got old ones they're still good.

    Other than that some are better than others obviously so if you have limited time choose accordingly but they're pretty much a positive thing and not using the same few on each campaign is good too, the more the better don't worry too much about the metrics just keep adding more in I can't think of any that are actually going to harm you when used properly.

    Nope, it was a different thread. Thanks for the link though.

    I prefer to go with just a few, but quality Tier1 properties. For this project I use two expired ones I found and plan to create 3-4 new ones and for those I want to use the strongest web2.0 of course.

    I use wordpress and blogger mainly. I make them manually.
    The other Tier 1 Web2.0s I make with RankerX / FCS Networker.

    I usually check them in SEMRush to see which ones have been going up or down. If G decided to trust it more, I am all for it.

    I'm also a huge fan of any web2.0 that provides inner pages instead of subdomains, although they are fewer these days.

    I am now days testing Ranker X web 2.0 blogs, as they have many other platforms. So I think all web 2.0's are fine to use till they are links.
