    I?m looking to get started in Auto Blogging and want to know whether it would be a fatal flaw to not use a 3rd party hosting provider for my WP blogs (as opposed to simply using blogname.wordpress.com). Does using the free WP hosting, where the blog name is a sub-domain negatively impact search rankings? Are there other limitations I should be aware of?

    I would also like some information on the questions asked by the op! ;)

    But AFAIK, if you do SEO, linkbacks, etc etc...it should not matter too much. But when you get higher traffic that is when I imagine you could run into some problems....but if that's happening you should be able to throw down a few bucks for some reliable hosting.
