Can I place adsense on my blog?

  1. I know it´s not possible in free wordpress blogs, but I paid for my domain. Is it the same? Can´t I place adsense ads on my blog? I tried and the code disapears as soon as I paste it on the html text widget. Is this the problem or am I doing something else wrong?
    Thank you in advance.

  2. I'm sorry, but advertising is not allowed on WordPress.com. If you want to run ads on your blog, you might be interested in a self-hosted installation of WordPress.org.

  3. to change to wordpress.org do I need to start my blog over again? I paid for my domain, will it be the same? and the host, can I choose a portuguese webhost as i'm in portugal?

  4. Hi there,

    You can choose any host server that you would like if you decide to switch to WordPress.org. We do have host recommendations available here.

    Regarding your domain name, you can update your name servers to point them to your new host so you can continue to use your domain. Directions on how to do that are available here:

    Additionally, in some ways you will need to start your blog over. WordPress.org does not have all of the same themes as WordPress.com and you will need to insert plugins that can replace Widgets. However, you can transfer your content over to a WordPress.org site by following these directions:
