    After reading information about WordAds, I'm still a little confused and looking for clarification. I currently have blog .wordpress.com, but if I purchase my domain name through WordPress, am I potentially eligible for the WordAds program? What kind of traffic is required to do WordAds? I.E. What constitutes a "medium or high traffic blog" as I've read while looking for more information.

    Alternatively, if I purchase my domain name outside of WordPress, but still use WordPress as my server host, I am still not allowed to use other ad programs like Google Adsense, correct? The only way I can use other programs besides WordAds is if I host my blog somewhere else and not on the WordPress servers?

    I'm interested in exploring ad programs, and I would prefer to stay on the WordPress server – which, if I understand correctly, means I could only do WordAds. If you use WordAds, I'd love to know what kind of success you've had.

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is pilotingpaperairplanes.wordpress.com.

    Awesome, thanks for the feedback! Good to know I was on the right track.

    My final question is what size blogs are selected for WordAds (at least at this point in the program)? I'm sure my blog is too small, but I really want a "target" idea. For example, how many hits per week/month make a blog attractive for WordAds?
