    I am a noob and trying to start out.I had some .tk domains but they are not getting good serps.
    SO iam considering about wordpress or blogger blogs.
    Did they get same treatment like the .com sites?

    Not sure about Blogger.com site but it is possible to outrank .com site with wordpress.com site.
    Don't waste time doing SEO of .tk domain. Blogger.com and Wordpress.com is a way better than .tk

    Honestly, in my opinion if you can not afford the $12.00 or whatever to purchase hosting and domain, then this is not the game for you.

    But...

    Yes with a wordpress you can do it. I have done it before, for a site that I was just building a linkpush with. It was not even on purpose and it outranks everything on that page, though it is not super competitive.

    You can always throw in a "best" "reviews" or even "keywordsite" so that you can purchase the right domain. You can add keywords to the domain and I believe that it is easier to rank with your own then using wordpress. Just do some searches for things in the same niche or something similar. Are there any wordpress sites ranking or are they all domains?

    I don't know this from personal experience but I have seen Blogger sites rank pretty high sometimes when I am doing KW research. Never bothered to check them out though.

    They just have the right combination of things to appease the Google Gods.

    Your own domain is far better though. By a long shot.

    You can, but long term, your going to wish you spent the money and kept control.
