    Hi, my website is about free stuff, everything that free etc...and I am planning to choose slogan is "King of free castle"

    English is not my mother language so I am not sure this slogan is correct

    Please advice

    Thanks

    "king of free castle". I can't even decipher what it means.

    That doesn't sound right. Rather try something like "King of free stuff".

    Unless you're signing a letter or introduction, and your website is called "Free Castle", thus making you the king.

    If it's a rhyming pun on "king of the castle" because "free" can rhyme with "the", then it might make sense I suppose.

    OP, I can see what you're getting at but it sounds a bit clumsy and not really native english. Give more info on what you're trying to say, I'm sure someone'll come up with a good suggestion.

    If "Free Castle" is a place, then "The King of Free Castle" would be correct.

    So if you owned a business named Lord Mulligan, then "Lord Mulligan: The King of Free Castle" works just fine.

    Of course, this is just an example as you didn't tell us what "Free Castle" was referring to in your slogan.

    I don't understand what you mean. You should replace the word castle by something that is more specific and related to the stuff you're promoting.

    We need more details because by itself that slogan doesn't sound right.

    Okay, then perhaps the following slogan would be much better than the current one on your site:

    (Insert Sitename): The Free Thing King

    No it's not right, it doesn't make sense.

    Or live like a king for free
    or land of the free

    Here are a few additional slogans based on the site name

    • Whateverfree: The King Of "Free" (a reference to the King Of The Hill)
    • Whateverfree: Whatever, It's Free! (this one might be a good choice if your target audience consists of brash adolescents)
    • Whateverfree: Free Stuff Fit For A King
    • Whateverfree: The King Of Whatever's Free
    • Whateverfree: It's Royalty-Free (a reference to royalty-free content)
    • Whateverfree: It's Royally Free (a pun on the expression "royally screwed")

    Thank you for your advice, I like the slogan "Whatever, it's free"
    How do you think about this slogan: The Free Center Of The World
    Is it good ?

    The Free Center of the world doesnt really sound that good. You should go with what Zwielicht said.
