Problems embedding

  1. I want to embed a Spicynodes page I've created and looking through the help system it says that once one person has embedded a site into their blog the embedding for that site is available to all. I can't get my Spicynodes to embed, yet this site http://www.gladysbailey.com/Adword-Quality-Score-Visualization.html has. This is the page I want to embed http://www.spicynodes.org/a/c0b6b2959f98dbfd8aa9ac1b536ae29f. Can you provide assistance please?
    Blog url: http://lerpysphotographyblog.wordpress.com/

  2. You can't embed that affiliate code into a free hosted WordPress.com blog. There is only one advertising program called WordAds at WordPress.com. It’s for blogs on their own domains. This is the homepage for the WordAds program: WordAds.co. 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

    If you do require an ecommerce site, advertising and/or affiliate links you can hire a web host and get a free software install from http://wordpress.org Refer to > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  3. Thank's very much for that, I'll stick with the URL being visible for the moment.

  4. There is only a very small exception made for posting affiliate links here at WordPress.com:

    Affiliate marketing blogs: Blogs with the primary purpose of driving traffic to affiliate programs and get-rich-quick schemes (“Make six figures from home!!”, “20 easy steps to top profits!!”, etc). This includes multi-level marketing (MLM) blogs and pyramid schemes. To be clear, people writing their own original book, movie or game reviews and linking them to Amazon, or people linking to their own products on Etsy do NOT fall into this category. Here is a thread in the support forums that talks more about which affiliate links are OK or not OK. http://en.wordpress.com/types-of-blogs/

  5. Having looked at what you've just sent I think what I wanted to do was OK. I wasn't trying to link an affiliate I was trying to link a page from an on-line program. This program allows one to develop mind-maps of projects and I wanted my mid-map linked into my research blog. So I think it qualifies as an allowable, but still not sure and don't know how to get it embedded if it is allowed.

  6. To upload a document and add its download link to a blog post or page see
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/uploading-documents/
    To embed a document we use a third party application like Scribd or Google Docs. Otherwise, the documents will appear as a download link.
