may I commercialize the blogroll?

  1. i want to rent my blogroll space. Do wordpress permit it? Please, give me the answer,...

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

  2. You need to click on the Terms of Service link below and read it.
    The short answer is no, absolutely not.

  3. but i don't find the reason that is relevant with it,

  4. It's banned. It comes under the heading of paid advertising.

  5. so, i can't get some money from a free WP blog?

  6. There are several ways: Use it as a portfolio for your goods and services, thereby tempting people to hire you. Use it as a demonstration of how well you blog so that people will hire you to blog for them.

    But no, not advertising.

    It takes money to make money, generally speaking.

  7. how about the upgraded WP blog? Is it also banned to make any advertisements?

  8. This is the only way to make money through ads via free a WP.com blog:

  9. The only upgrade that allows you to place ads costs several thousand dollars to set up and $2600 per month.

  10. once again, how about promoting my own products or my friends products?

  11. You need to know that blogger initiated advertising is not allowed on any free hosted WordPress.com blog. We cannot advertise or sell any products we do not personally create or sell services we do not personally provide on free hosted WordPress.com blogs. If you do require an ecommerce site, advertising, affiliate links, paid or sponsored content you can hire a web host and get a free software install from http://wordpress.org
    Refer to > http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/

    There is no upgrade, aside from a VIP hosting upgrade http://vip.wordpress.com/our-services/ that you can purchase that allows blogger initiated advertising on a free hosted WordPress.com blog. You will have to hire a web host and set up your own WordPress.org install to run your own advertising.

    E-commerce transactions via shopping carts and the like cannot be conducted on free blogs from and being free hosted by WordPress.com. Paid content and/or sponsored content is not allowed.

  12. The short answer: No.

  13. So few will accept "no" that I post a cover angle comment.
