An Unsolicited Ad Appeared on My Blog

    When reading a post I filed this evening, my husband noticed an ad at the bottom of the page. It did not appear on my screen.
    The ad appears to be from a WordPress site called Eco Pressed. http://ecopressed.com/about-2/

    Can you explain why this happened? The ad is now gone from my husband's screen.

    Thanks!

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

  2. WordPress.com has been running advertising on our free hosted blogs since 2006. Many bloggers do not know this because despite the fact they ticked the box required to get a free blog, they did not read the ToS. Many also do not read features page, or advertising entry in the support documents after registering their username and blog(s). Also note that as the ads do not display to us when we are logged in, and as many use browsers with ad blockers when logged out, they may not realize they are there at all. The only way to get rid of all advertising on our free hosted WordPress.com blogs is to purchase an annually renewable No-Ads upgrade.
