    I just recently received my Google Adsense approval and I am curious how to implement ads on my site so they start to show up and I can see them show up. Any help with this issue will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is soshitech.com.

  2. Hello there,
    No blogger initiated advertising, retailing or reselling the work 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

    The advertising exceptions noted in support documentation are for high traffic blogs that qualify for and are accepted into the Ad Control program, soon to be replaced with the WordAds program, and for extremely high traffic blogs that qualify and are accepted into the paid VIP hosting program.

    How do I upgrade to a .org domain if I already have a theme upgrade? The .org guided transfer does not support a blog with a purchased theme.

  5. You need to get your own host and move off WordPress.COM if you want to use AdSense. You will also need to find your own theme.

  6. A custom domain name is NOT the same as moving hosting. You have to move hosting to use adsense or a purchased theme.

    Oh okay I see. Do you have any recommendations for a good host to move to?
