    I sometimes hear people say that hosting on free web hosts like 00webhost can harm seo rankings. Most of what I hear just sounds like opinions. Does anyone know if there really is any search engine penalty for a site hosted on a free host?

    It always better to have a paid and reliable web host , because free hosts are not reliable and they are slow. And now google is giving value to sites that are loading fast.
