    Can you show us the HTML code you're trying to insert? It's quickly likely that you are attempting to put in a script or other coding that is not allowed on WordPress.com.

  3. <IMG alt="Elf Cosmetics" border="0" src="http://www.eyeslipsface.com/elfshop/linkshare/banners/march_madness460.bmp"><IMG border="0" width="1" height="1" src="http://ad.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/show?id=D9vzgIZnMjI&bids=123566.10000147&type=4&subid=0">

  4. If you are hosted here at WordPress.com, ads are against the Terms of Service, and your blog can be shut down by staff.

  5. so if you are apart of an afilliate service you can't link up to those sites?

  6. This is from the FAQs http://faq.wordpress.com/2005/12/08/adsense/

    Adsense and other Ads
    Adsense, Yahoo, Chitika and other ads are not permitted to be added by users. Adverts that may be inserted when using an external blogging program will be blocked.
    Sponsored posts including PayPerPost are not permitted.
    A discrete link to your business or a site you are associated with in the sidebar or an About page is permitted.
    A discrete link to Amazon or similar in the context of a post is okay, but if the primary purpose of the blog is to drive traffic to affiliate programs that’s not allowed. If you’re not sure, contact support.
    Clicktrackers and any promotion of the “I made a million on the internet and so can you” type of advertising are expressly forbidden.
    We have a very low tolerance for blogs created purely for search engine optimization or commercial purposes, machine-generated blogs, and will continue to nuke them, so if that’s what you’re interested in WordPress.com is not for you.
    You may see some advertising on the domain.
    1. VIP blogs are able to run ads. http://wordpress.com/vip-hosting/
    2. We also run some ads sometimes and the reasons for that are explained here http://wordpress.com/blog/2006/09/06/on-ads/

  7. thanks guys!

  8. Real ads are not allowed, but you could always add some colour to your site and send up the idea with a fake/joke ad.
