Google Adsense

  1. Hello. I am publishing syndicated blogs, and i would like to add google adsense, but every time i try, the code is messed up, and either nothing shows or simply '//' shows. Can somebody please tell me what settings I need to update to allow the script google uses?

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

  2. Bloggers cannot monetize a free hosted WordPress.com blog. In a nutshell no blogger initiated advertising, retailing or reselling the work created or services provided by anyone other than yourself is allowed on free hosted wordpress.COM blogs. E-commerce transactions via shopping carts and the like cannot be conducted on free blogs from and being free hosted by wordpress.COM

    The advertising exceptions noted in support documentation are for high traffic blogs that qualify for and are accepted into the Ad Control program, and for extremely high traffic blogs that qualify and are accepted into the paid VIP hosting program.

    If you do require an ecommerce site, advertising and/or affiliate links you can hire a web host and get a free software install from http://wordpress.org Refer to > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  3. thank you for your response. I paid for a domain on WordPress. I'm not using a free WordPress account. Furthermore, the blogs I'm syndicating are through a paid directory. It seems silly to pay for 2 locations and not be able to monetize

  4. If by "paid domain" you mean the domain mapping upgrade, please take note of this:

  5. Buying a domain name and mapping it does not relieve you of any of the TOS conditions @timethief noted above - your domain is only for the domain and not the hosting.

  6. Use Blogger.com its free to use ads:)

    Hello,

    I am registered with bajajpiyush.wordpress.com for writing blogs. So my question is, can i use this site with the Google adsense to display the advertisements?
    Or i need to buy a domain for publishing the advertisements?

  8. @piyushbajaj2007
    The answer is no you cannot use blogger initiated Google Adsense. See here . http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/google-adsense-22?replies=7#post-738193
    No getting a domain does not change that and airodyssey and auxclass have both stated that above. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/#important-notes-before-upgrading

    Ok..
    So you mean to say that we are not been allowed to use Google adsense while working in the wordpress hostings?

    Correct. There is no blogger initiated advertising allowed on free hosted WordPress.com blogs. The advertising exceptions noted in support documentation are for high traffic blogs that qualify for and are accepted into the Ad Control program, and for extremely high traffic blogs that qualify and are accepted into the paid VIP hosting program.
