    Wordpress site google rankings


    Hi everyone, I am wondering if anybody could help me out with wordpress and rankings.
    My question is: Do free wordpress websites (on free wordpress accounts) get ranked lower
    in searches? I am thinking that maybe Google sees this and thinks the website isn't legitimate
    or something like that.
    This is the website here: https://nswlandscaping.wordpress.com/

    If you want to rank high you should grab your own domain name and hosting (starts around 50 euros / year for basic hosting)

    This would give you access to much more wordpress options, plugins as well as page code.
    This would help you when it comes to SEO, because the free hosted site on wordpress.com doesn't give you access to all the needed features to rank high in SERPs.

    I'd take a look at rewriting all the content first, every page is virtually the same.

    50 euros is quite high. You can get it for much cheaper: https://www.namecheap.com/hosting/shared.aspx (for a small wordpress site, even the most basic of hosting packages can handle it).

    Never heard of them before but from what I can see a renewal for the cheapest option is 35€ /y if the domain is free only the first year then we are back to something around 50 euros/y.

    I might try them for some test domain over a year and see if they really worth it

    They are pretty good, they're a premium cloudflare partner, so you can get access to some of their higher tier things for free such as Railgun. However you do lose the free cloudflare ssl (however could use letsencrypt to keep it free.)

    If you sign up: https://affiliate.namecheap.com/?affId=71285 that's my affiliate link ;).
