Hi my blog is techtimely.wordpress.com . i have a quest that when i visit my blog , a connection request is sent to skimresources.com.This was not happened before.neither i didn't add any new widgets.So when i checked the source code of my blog , i found a javascript named as "wordpress.js". and link to script was as
    http://s.skimresources.com/js/wordpress.js
    Also there was an api as http://r.skimresources.com/api So what does wordpress.com has to do with this sort of scripts.Since i have a bit of programming level i checked the response headers too as it was like
    .X-SKIM-Hostname:stampy2.skimlinks.com
    Is this any unauthorized scripts? or any malware?similarly i have also doubt on the script http://edge.quantserve.com/quant.js? Pls help me with needed info.

  2. Skimlinks is one of the advertising affiliate partners that WordPress.com works with to run ads on our blogs. http://en.support.wordpress.com/advertising/

    If it is causing you a problem with your blog, you should certainly contact Support directly and point them at this forum thread. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

  3. Thanks for the reply, but it will be much helpful to normal bloggers that if wordpress support gives a detailed information regarding it's advertising scripts [analysis of sourcescode, or an online wordpress tool llike that] or scripts in wordpress (like scripts from skimresources.com, scorecardresearch.com etc ), so that we could identify the genuine websites wordpress is connecting to or pinging sites on visiting wordpress.com.it could also be done as a wordpress support webpage on these scripts.

  4. Express that to staff via the Help button on your dashboard. Volunteers in the forum can do nothing about that.

  5. Make the suggestion by contacting Support directly. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/
