    i saw an advt. on one of my blog post.... but when i refreshed the page it was gone.... what that means???? wordpress cheating us, by diaplaying ads on our blog post secretly...?? HERE IS THE SNAP SHOT DISPLAYING THE END OF MY BLOGPOST

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

  2. It's in the TOS. All free blogs have ads on them.

  3. You can buy the ad-free upgrade if you want.

  4. If you do a search of the forum, you'll see we get this same exact issue posted several times a day.

  5. If you don't want ads on your site you must buy the advertising free upgrade or switch over to your own hosting through WordPress.org. Good luck.

    I like adds on my page.

  7. You apparently like spamming the forum as well. Reported.

  8. Can you earn money from ads? And can you ask for them if none show?

    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 features page, or 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. The only way to get rid of all advertising on our free hosted WordPress.com blogs is to purchase an annually renewable No-Ads upgrade.

    If you feel an ad is inappropriate please take a screenshot of it and send it to Staff by emailing support@wordpress.com or upload it into your Media Library and contact Staff and let them know it's there for them to view.

    Can you earn money from ads?

    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

    Those who do have well established blogs that have suitable content and secure over 20,000 views monthly or more, may apply to get into the WordAds program which will replace the Ad Control program.

    Those who have for extremely high traffic blogs (example: CNN) that qualify can apply for acceptance into the paid VIP hosting program. http://vip.wordpress.com/

    If you hire a web host and set up your own WordPress.org install for self hosting you can initiate your own advertising on it. For self-hosting figure an average monthly total cost (including cost of a domain name) of about $10 to $25 generally, but that all depends on storage and bandwidth requirements. Most bloggers I know that take this route to make money via advertising do not make much over and above their hosting and domain registration costs. Also note that literally millions of people are downloading and installing Adblock plus on their Firefox browsers each month, fewer and fewer people are seeing ads.
