I am confused

    I know my site will be getting many more hits very soon and I would like to run ads to take advantage of the clicks.

    I keep reading through, but I get confused.
    Please help me to decipher what I must do.
    make a domain?
    how do I get the ads then?
    will they appear in the areas of my blog I want them to appear?
    do I get paid for page views or actual clicks on the ads?

    Thank you very much.

  2. There is only one advertising program called WordAds at WordPress.com. It’s for blogs on their own domains

    This is the homepage for the WordAds program: WordAds.co. http://www.wordads.co/ There you will find our application page as well as FAQs.

    Aside from a blog being accepted into WordAds, no blogger initiated advertising, retailing or reselling the work or products 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

    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/

    Thank you for this quick reply.

    So, I have two options. I could get a custom domain from WordPress and hope they accept my blog for the WordAds.

    Or, I could have my own, hosted site, perhaps with another host, for example, and then use the wordpress software and also have the blog redirected.

    :)
