One way to exploit free hosting and still have control is to use free hosts that allow you to use your own domain.
Many free hosts will work for a while, then go down hill quickly. Use Moniterz to keep track of your free hosts and if one goes down, you can easily move it to another host and just switch your DNS with your domain registrar.
Or just use free hosting for a few months if you're short on cash or start up money.
Having domains just parked is usually a waste of money. Use them with free hosting to boost your web properties and linking possibilities.
Use all that PLR content you have (spin and mix it), plus ZZ Tuel, Hubz, Commentz, Scrubz, Moverz and more to automate these free hosts.
Once they have value, move them to another(dependable) host.
The great thing about using Tuelz and static HTML pages is that when looking for free hosts, you only need to have FTP access and no other features. This also means you use far less server resources than a blog, which is a big deal on free and cheap hosts.
Be sure to set up Moniterz to keep track and see how all your sites perform, including the free ones.
Let's anticipate a few things...Programs like Bookmark Demon, Scrapebox, Xrummer make it possible to spam tons and tons of links. To find these links you just use custom google searches to look for footprints of major web scripts, like blogs, forums, community software, etc.
But if wecan find them, I'll bet a coke so can Google. I believe Google will soon have to devalue these types of links, simply because they are becoming worthless.
If they do, it's possible that links on "regular" pages will become more important, simply because the comment/forum type links won't count any more.
Try to diversify your hosting. Get yourself a good, solid host, such as a virtual server (about $50 a month). This will give you good power.
Then, look for cheap but dependable hosting plans on a variety of services. Try to find ones that allow 3-5 domains or so. Then use each domain in a totally different niche and linking "system".
Or get inexpensive reseller accounts and trade some basic hosting with others that you trust.
-Boom boom boom boom.
