Before I ask my question, and before everybody starts saying "free sites are crap, you don't own them, they can close your account, etc", I want to clarify that I know that. I have a paid hosting and 3 domains for sites I'm building. But I just want to build a couple of simple sites to test some stuff I have in mind, I won't be concentrating all of my efforts in them and honestly I don't have money to buy another domain now (Paypal limited, grrr!). Ok, my question: As regards to SEO, will it make much of a difference whether I make those sites in Blogger, or whether I make them in Wodpress in a free hosting using one of the subdomains they provide? Can the second option potentially make it more difficult to rank, according to the domain's "reputation"? Obviously blogger blogs are ok with Google, but I like the flexibility of Wordpress' themes and plugins. The free hosting I have had experience with is Xtreemhost, and they seemed quite decent considering the $0 cost. Recommendations? Thanks EDIT: The title should say "vs", lol... too late.
