Questions on Custom Domain

  1. Hello wordpress,

    I have this question, Im planning to put up a wordpress blog where i am planning to transfer my old original articles to wordpress.

    Question 1. If i delete the content from my previous blog and transfer it to wordpress am i now free from "scraping"? I mean i wrote it, im planning to transfer it.

    Question 2. I am an affiliate marketer, If i get a custom domain name for my wordpress, am i allowed to advertise my affiliate products? how about some paid-to-click sites?

    I hope to hear from you. I am really planning to have a custom wordpress domain but i am hesitant because i of those questions stated above. Your reply to these queries would be highly appreciated.

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

    There is no upgrade including the purchase of a domain that will allow you to do what your propse on a free hsoted WordPress.com blog. 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

    The advertising exceptions noted in support documentation are for high traffic blogs that qualify for and are accepted into the Ad Control program, soon to be replaced with the WordAds program, and for extremely high traffic blogs that qualify and are accepted into the paid VIP hosting program. The WordAds program is only for blogs that are well established and have at least 20,000 page views monthly, as well as, meeting the criteria for acceptance into the program.
