I just notices embedded ads on my blog pages??

  1. How long have these been being used? And how do I get rid of them?

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

  2. To offset some of the costs associated with providing free web hosting WordPress.com has been running advertising on our free hosted blogs since 2006. Many bloggers do not know this because despite the fact they ticked the box required to get a free blog, they did not read the ToS. Many also do not read the advertising entry in the support documents after registering their username and blog(s). Also note that as the ads do not display to us when we are logged in, and as many use browsers with ad blockers when logged out, they may not realize they are there at all. I think what you are seeing is WordPress.com generated advertising code.

    Lastly, note to eliminate all advertising on our free hosted WordPress.com blogs we can purchase an annually renewable No-Ads upgrade.

  3. Are the ads linked to words in your blog or are they "regular" boxes and such?? -

    if they are linked to words they are not placed by WordPress.COM

  4. Good question auxclass. Thanks for catching that.

  5. Regular boxes. Prior explanation is right on the money. I plan to upgrade. Thx for the help.

  6. You're welcome.
