Just noticed ad placement at the end of SurroundHealth's recent blog post

    The ad is NOT VISUALLY separated from the blog so it looks like it is part of the actual blog post. SurroundHealth just published a blog about health literacy; bridging the gap from healthcare to home and included reference to maternal health). So, you know what ad appeared at the end (WITHOUT ANY VISUAL Separation?) -- A YouTube ad of a woman who was clearly 8 1/2 months pregnant drinking soda from a 2L bottle. It cut to a Ryan Seacrest interview. (Didn't watch the video; cannot support the "Ryan is everywhere" movement)

    So, now it looks like this video has something to do with a blog and was selected and placed by the blog author.

    Also, when I click on "About these ads," it says that the ad appears because either (a) the blogger is trying to make money from the ads and has chosen to show them [Which we have NOT and are NOT] or (b) the Blogger is using this as a free service (Which we recently paid for an upgrade)

    SO....You need to have a better way to let readers know...You are looking at an AD; separate ADs from Blog Posts...And, Make it clear the Ad is place by WordPress and NOT by the blog author.

  2. To support the service (and keep free features free), we sometimes run advertisements, and the agreement for this has been in our terms of service since 2006.

    We try hard to only run them in limited places. If you would like to completely eliminate ads from appearing on your blog, we offer the No-Ads Upgrade: http://en.support.wordpress.com/no-ads/
