Will Google rank you any lower if your sites hosted on a free host?

    I am planning to make some micro niche sites to test some things and see how much money I can make on them.

    I dont have the money now to pay for the $70-80 for hosting but I can afford a TLD domain.

    Can Google somehow rank me less just if I host on a free host or it doesnt matter?

    No they wont care if its free, but the quality of the host does matter.

    Such as speed, ads, and other SEO-related variables.

    Haven't heard of that issue. In fact, I have seen so many sites hosted on free hosts rank higher, mostly when hosted on blog platforms like wordpress, blogspot, etc.
