  2. Not allowed. No advertising on WordPress.com blogs. Not for the "owners" that is. WordPress themselves advertise a little bit on our blogs from time to time.

    You can go self-hosted, if you prefer. WordPress.ORG was created for that purpose.

    More info in the ToS and other rulezzzz....

    if you get 25000 hits a month you will be payed 50% of wp advertising

    If you want a monetized blog you are in the wrong place. No retailing or reselling is allowed here and there are other restrictions as well. So you will need to hire a web host and run software from wordpress.ORG. Here at wordpress.COM the types of blogs allowed and not allowed are clearly defined > http://wordpress.com/types-of-blogs/ In addition only very high traffic blogs in the paid VIP hosting program and/or in the AdControl program can run advertising http://en.support.wordpress.com/advertising/

  5. @s11march93 Hi. Before you now consider having a self-hosted blog, I'm pretty sure you will only be able to generate a true income if you have really a lot of traffic coming your way. So I would think it would probably be a could idea to do a bit of calculation before you pay money to earn money. ;)

    @timethief New user icon. Avatar. Whatever the name. I almost didn't 'recognise' you. :)

  6. @christiangrblr, where in the world did you get the idea that WP would share ad revenue with you?

    I have some ocean-front property in Colorado if you are interested.

    @TSP
    christiangrblr is referring to the AdControl program. Here's the quote:

    We have a feature called Ad Control that lets WordPress.com bloggers with a lot of traffic (generally 25,000 pageviews/month or more) and appropriate content turn on AdSense for their blog and split the resulting revenues 50/50 with us. If you’d like to apply to try Ad Control, please use the form below to send us a message, and include the blog URL/address and your traffic details for the past 90 days. http://en.support.wordpress.com/advertising/

    Really guys is there anything more to be said on this that hasn't already been said? lol :D

  8. Small language areas will never be able to generate that amount of click per month. Populations too small. This must be a matter for the UN or something. Surely it must be rac*sm or d*scr*m*nat*on or what have we? US cultural *mper*al*sm certainly!

    Where's my lawyer?

    Oh, well, - never mind. Cost/benefit analysis, you know...

    :-D)))

  9. Holy crap! I hadn't seen that. Now the circle is complete.

    I'm going to the beach.

  10. Haha! Sounds sensible...

  11. @TSP
    LOL ... :D Stay clear of shark infested waters, will ya? ;)

  12. Loan Sharks and what not. Your seaside estate and that 25.000 click income and all else. Take care, thesacredpath! :-D

  13. is there any way.by which i can turn my blog.com to a my own domain name and then make it a source of income?

  14. Surely: buy your domain name, pay someone to host your blog, and remember that WordPress.Org software for blogging is free. You will then be good to go.
    You'll have to keep paying for your domain name and for your hosting, and you'll have to work out problems you encounter with your plugins, add-ons, troubles with your host, etc. on your own (or pay someone with experience and knowledge). Beyond that, the sky is your limit…

  15. You will have to get the domain name, hire a web host such as godaddy, install and configure the wordpress.ORG software on that web host and all that. Figure a cost of around $10 to $25 per month total including all costs.

    You will be responsible for all installations, upgrades, backups and troubleshooting. If something goes wrong, it will b up to you to figure out what it is and fix it.

    That said, I know quite a number of people advertising on their blogs (hits around 500 to 2k per day) and they barely cover their web hosting costs.

    Don't think advertising is going to replace your day job.

  16. Or sign up with Google blog, they have a big and bold Monetize button waiting for you. They will hand hold you all the way to the bank (laughing or crying depending on your luck).

  17. Yes, Google WANTS you to advertise for them. They make a $0,75 or so per click and you make a half-cent to a 2 cents per click. Works out great for Google. Not so great for you (unless you have a lot of click-happy visitors). Do note though that with Google, they have a tendency to ban people from using adcents, sorry adsense, on a whim and it would be far easier to stop the flow of oil into the Gulf of Mexico than get back into the adcents program.

  18. …hmm.
    A guy I work with has a couple of plans for that, involving a couple of 1/2 mile long funnels fitted together. But he is not really a techy sort of person so that could be why he has not thought of using Google to fix that little problem…

  19. There are a number of interesting ideas floating around out there (pun intended). Some of them might be worth a try.

  20. God knows!
    (if google doesn't)

  21. /wiping tears of laughter

  22. ***ha! ha! ha!***

  23. Stuff Google in the end of the pipe? I'm surprised that I haven't seen adsense on the live feeds from the ROV's working on the sea floor.

  24. I don't know, How I landed in here.
    It makes me confuse a little bit. I inquire an ISP about domain. They told me to pay them 10$ a month and they will register a domain.

    Now if they are registering my domain, Why would I need wordpress.org software to be installed on my Blog or page.

    If my domain is registered through that ISP, Do I still need godaddy.com services.

    If I don't register with that ISP for a domain, How much it will cost me to upgrade my wordpress.com in here.

    So many questions :)

    WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate and very different. http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    If you purchase a domain name and domain mapping and still have wordpress.com free host your blog for you then nothing changes. You still cannot advertise on the free hosted blog..

    Before Upgrading
    The Domain Mapping Upgrade does not enable the permission to use advertising, any kind of prohibited code, or upload additional themes and plugins. With the upgrade, your blog will still be hosted here at WordPress.com, which means that you will not have FTP access to your files and must still abide by our Terms of Service accordingly.

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/
  26. Hosting websites on your own is complicated no doubt. This is why you are better off checking with any knowledgeable friend or personal contact. Do not buy anything from your ISP just because they're closest to you or may be convenient.

  27. I've had reasonably good luck with godaddy, bluehost and hostgator. They all seem to do a reasonably good job of keeping things running and the technical support is good.

    Personally I use A Small Orange, the "Small" shared hosting package, and have been very happy with them. Their technical support is top notch and there uptime is better than most in my experience, and their prices are very good. I can highly recommend them and have 5 web clients that are using them as well.

  28. Thanks timethief and arifsali,

    Although I am still very much confused in having my own domain:
    thepmpguru dot com blog.. But will turn every page of the timethief :) blog to seek an answer :)

    Thanks...

  29. Thanks thesacredpath.. I will check on them,

    The best thing about wordpress is everyone love to respond to you and try to solve your problem..

    I am so happy to be here. I wish I could come early..
