Can we use our own ads?

  1. I'm considering moving my static website over to wordpress. I use ads (amazon, google, zazzle, etc.) Are we allowed to? I read thought the tour and stuff and didn't see anything about this. So, I just want to verify if it is allowed or not.

    Thank you for your time.

  2. User advertising is, except for a couple very narrow exceptions, not allowed on wordpress.COM. For the exceptions, see the last sentence under "Affiliate marketing blogs" in the bottom set of bullet points in the "types of blogs" link below.

    There will be a new WordAd feature coming in the first part of 2012 for qualified sites here though. It does not allow you to pick or post your own ads though.

  3. To add to what thesacredpath said, here is a new support document about affiliate links specifically:

  4. @airodyssey, thanks for posting that link. I've added it to my copy/pasta file.

  5. Thank you both.

  6. You are welcome.
