Adsense?

  1. Hi everyone,

    Apologies in advance, I know this has probably been asked before, but I just want to be 100% clear before I go purchasing domains ;)

    Okay I currently have a free blog on blogger, and I'd like to migrate to wordpress.com. I understand that adsense is currently not allowed on wordpress.com

    However, my question is, if I upgrade it to "mysite.com" intead of "mysite.wordpress.com" then am I allowed to place adsense on it?

    If so, could someone point me to a guide on migrating from blogspot to wordpress.com

    I would use wordpress.org, but my site will be subject to huge spikes in traffic, and I'm expecting 10k daily visitors alongside these spikes. That's why I'd prefer to use wordpress.com

    If this isn't possible, can someone tell me what my best options would be?

    Thanks,
    James

  2. Okay forget that, what if I buy a domain, use wordpress.org, and then host it all on google servers, that would solve my issues, right?

    also, can you use adsense and analytics on wordpress.org?

    Yes. Please read this for clarity > WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org

  4. In a nutshell 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 There is no upgrade you can purchased form WordPress.COM that allows blogger initiated advertsing and purchasing a domain does not change that. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/#important-notes-before-upgrading

    If you’ve registered a domain through WordPress.com and now want it to point to a blog or website hosted elsewhere then you can do this by updating the nameservers. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/domain-management/#update-nameservers See here for moving content > http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/

  5. Great, so how do I go about hosting my domain on google then?

  6. This is the support forum for free hosted WordPress.com blogs. We don't provide support here for hosting your domain on Google. You will have to do your own research and that and take the required steps to achieve it on your own.
