Is it acceptable to add blogdash.com badge

  1. I have been contacted by blogdash.com who added me to their community. They advised to add a badge to my blog such that when people click on the badge and end up creating an account with them, they pay me. My worry is, I am not sure whether it is permitted for a wordpress.com blog I don't want my blog to be blocked that is why am seeking your advice.

    The blog I need help with is seeclouds.com.

  2. that when people click on the badge and end up creating an account with them, they pay me.

    That gets your blog suspended

  3. What about I get verified in their site but don't add the badge on my blog

  4. That's not allowed and will get your blog suspended.

    There is only one advertising program called WordAds at WordPress.com and it’s for blogs on their own domains. This is the homepage for the WordAds program: http://www.wordads.co/ There you will find the 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
