Both Google and Bing will reduce your position in their search engine if your web site is not mobile friendly, i.e. if it doesn't look good on cell phones. You can verify your site is mobile friendly by testing it here.

If you create your website on Google Sites first, and then later decide you'd like to switch from their domain to your own domain, follow these directions.
