>Curious... does anyone know how redirecting a url affects the Search spiders/robots? i.ie; internic redirects the domain name you've paid for to a freebie site like xoom's or AOL member sites. They charge $80.00 a year to do this. I have had several people ask me this, but have never had the opportunity to test it.
I think robots don't really like redirections, it will be better to submit the real URL to the SE.
but your visitors... you have to be more conserned about them.
free web hosting it's very slow, and even if you can get a nice URL so they won't forget how to get to your site, they can see you're hosted for free and that doesn't say anything good about your site.
