    Hi there, can someone please talk me through how to put ads on my site. I have a domain and I understand I'm not allowed google Adsense but I was curious if I was allowed anything similar ? Thank you

    The blog I need help with is thecybertongue.com.

  2. We do have an advertising program called WordAds, which you read more about at http://wordads.co/

    Advertising outside of WordAds at WordPress.com is not allowed. For full details, please see:
    http://support.wordpress.com/advertising/
    http://wordpress.com/types-of-blogs/

    If you require other advertising, you might be interested in a self-hosted (WordPress.org) installation. There are no restrictions on advertising if you setup a self-hosted WordPress.org blog instead of a WordPress.com blog, but there are some added responsibilities.

    Please see this link to learn about the differences:

    We have hosting recommendations at the following link if you are interested:

  3. There is only one advertising program called WordAds at WordPress.com. It’s for blogs on their own domains. This is the homepage for the WordAds program: WordAds.co. http://www.wordads.co/ There you will find the application page as well as FAQs.

    Aside from a blog being accepted into WordAds, no blogger initiated advertising, retailing or reselling the work or products created or services provided by anyone other than yourself is allowed on free hosted wordpress.com blogs. E-commerce transactions via shopping carts and the like cannot be conducted on free blogs from and being free hosted by wordpress.com
