    Hi

    I am a newbie and have spend quite some time into learning SEO and most of it has been from this forum (couldn't thank enough).

    I am now trying to put into practice whatever i have learned and have built a WordPress website with a free domain (.tk) on a free host (not really putting in money at this learning stage).

    Now from what I have read it seems it will be really difficult or almost impossible to get it on SERPs but not too sure about it.

    Do you'll think if this is going to be a waste of time as search engines would not consider free domains in SERP's?


    Thank you!
    ps. I have done my keyword research and on page optimization and would soon start with link building (based on the feedback I get).

    I would just use a "site builder" style web 2.0 where you get a subdomain of your own. Specifically because .com, .net, .org seem to have an easier time ranking. Also, if you work on that and then decide to open a money site in the same niche you can take your existing one (which should be a pretty powerful Web 2.0 by then) and start putting links to your new site on the old one.

    Create a name.com account, and give me your account number, and I'd more than happy to push you a domain for free, so you can experiment with it if you would like. It won't be an EMD, but it's a very general name, which you could really do whatever you want with it (

    Let me know if you want it. :)
