    Dear mr/miss,
    I would like to get my site a bit higher in google, because it is difficult to find. I want to upload some plug ins, but with my version of WordPress it seems not possible. ( WordPress.com) Do I have to change to another programm? Thanks a lot for your effort.

    Kind regards, Jan-Pieter Visschers ( [email redacted])

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

  2. While plugins are common on self hosted WordPress sites, due to security concerns, they are not available on WordPress.com. There is more info regarding WordPress.com and plugins here:

    http://support.wordpress.com/plugins/

    However, we do have several built-in features that were inspired by many popular plugins. You might find what you want by searching for it at http://en.support.wordpress.com/

    What feature are you looking to add with a plugin?

    Also, for more information on the differences between WordPress.com and self-hosted WordPress sites, please see:

    http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    Please let me know if you have further questions or if anything is unclear.

    So for those of us on WordPress.com, would we have to switch over to WordPress.org in order to install a widget that is not already available?

    It's hard to know without having a specific example of what you are trying to do. But the answer is probably yes. If you want to instal a plugin, you need a self hosted WordPress.org site.
