 Free vs. Pay - Why Pay is Better

Some people go with freebie websites which gives them a domain name like www.freebieservice.com/mydomain/   I'm all for free whenever possible but free websites and domain names just aren't worth it.

Free website services are typically unreliable.  Your site may be up for a week and down for two.  If your website is down, they don't care.  Why should they?  You aren't paying them anything. 

Also, they can shut down at any time.  Nothing is worse than spending hours creating and promoting a website and then have it just be gone. 

That's not all.  You have no control over what advertising they put on your site.  Think pop ups are annoying?  So do your visitors.  Would you go back to a site that has a pop up when you enter, when you go to another page and when you leave?  Neither will your visitors. 

Another reason that free websites aren't good is that they hurt you in the search engines.  The higher you get in the search engines the more visitors you will get to your site.  Most search engines put pay domain names ahead of the freebie ones so if you have a freebie one you are going to be further down the search engines.

Basically, freebie sites and domain names will make your life a whole lot harder in the long run so it's best to just go ahead and pay.
