Can I sign up to Wordads if I have a WordPress.org account?

  1. Trying to sign up for Wordads but my blog is registered to a WordPress.org account.
    I have a WordPress.com account on the same email address but my blog is not linked to it.
    help!

  2. You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.

  3. Wordads are only wordpress.com, but being self-hosted, you can have any ads you want. It is wide open for you.

  4. Federated Media, however, is fussy.They said no to my .org site but yes to my .com one.

  5. it must in both place , you will logout

  6. We are Volunteers who answer questions to the best of our ability. If you would like to take that up with Staff then please do that in a the appropriate place ie. on Staff's announcement post. I scrolled down and read th comments and found this statement for Matt (founder of WordPress).

    No plans for a .org plugin or supporting non-WordPress sites yet, but a plugin is definitely something we’ll consider in the future. http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2011/11/29/wordads/#comment-143806

  7. Interesting point arising from the above postings by TSP and by rajeev. If you have multiple blogs, some at WordPress.com, and want to run the same ad program across them, you can't. WordAds is only for WordPress.com, and WordAds is the only way for you to get ad revenue from your WordPress.com blog. (Things may well be different for VIPs.)

  8. That's not correct: you can also be a part of the Ad Control program with or without WordAds. And EVERYTHING is different for VIP's; that's why they pay $600 per month.

    wordpress.com is not suitable for a small blog that wishes to make ad revenue. Mind you, small blogs don't really make money anyway.

  9. If you are talking about those in the VIP program, they do pretty much as they wish and I would imagine that the WordAd thing is available to them as well. VIP is like being self-hosted, but wordpress.COM staff take care of all the piddly backend stuff and keeps them all up and running with no bandwidth concerns or anything like that. All they have to do is pony up that $3,750.00 per month (starting at) to Automattic and blog on.

  10. You can even use Plug-in's in the VIP program - but..... costs $ 5,000 U.S. per Plug-in to have the Plug-in reviewed and approved.

  11. Whoa! That is a big chunk of bread to have a plugin.

  12. It is so tempting to send the real obnoxious ones that yell with ALL CAPS about needing a Plug-in over to the VIP program and skip the cost part -
