Vote for adsense!

  1. Damn.

    Please make it optional. *begs*

  2. I want also place some adsense on my blog, why is it not optional... It is very easy to make it optional...

  3. why is it always about making money?
    lets stay away from the 'spam' adsense and
    remember why we chose WordPress in the first place ?*!
    please...

  4. why is it always about making money?

    Maybe some people just like the downmarket look a cluster of those cheesy ads provides. ;)

  5. You have to make an effort to write a blog; I don't see the harm in making money off of it. Things are tough for some people, and money doesn't come easily. If they can make a few bucks to help out with the rent from some ads, why not? Sites like WordPress make tons of money off their bloggers; it's about money for them.

  6. I would love to make some money with adsense and put it on my blog. I have been waiting for wordpress to let us do so.

  7. So... why won't WP.com let us have ad's? What do they lose?

    Yes [1]
    No [0]

  8. WordPress.com will lose revenue from the ads they put on your blog.

    Wild speculation: If it happens it will be a paid upgrade, and it will be expensive enough for them to cover their expected revenue loss. What will the cost of the upgrade be? I don't know, but I expect for most bloggers, knowing what a few people make who get multiple thousands of blog hits per day, it will most likely cost more than you will make. Then everyone will be complaining, "I'm not making enough off of my ads, what is wrong, is WordPress blocking me? How can I increase the number of clicks on the ads, etc."

  9. To those who think the 'no-ads' policy of WordPress should be continued as ads would just add to the clutter and ugliness of the blog, please do remember that your blogs are already flodded with ad-sense, mine is, and I am getting no respite from them.

    Adsense is showing between the comments http://i17.tinypic.com/4d796jn.jpg

    and is totally flooding the posts, showing immediately after the post title http://i8.tinypic.com/67exf9f.jpg and at the end of the post http://i14.tinypic.com/6blm2xf.jpg The posts are nested between ad-sense ads!

    You are right. For those who haven't seen them, you can take a look here to see what is being done to your blogs with the WordPress adsense: http://wank.wordpress.com/2008/02/26/define-broke/

    Hey Im new to all this let me just start that way, but having ads instead of content on my blog doesnt seem like the kind of blog I want. Sure making money on the net would be a wonderful thing, but there is a place for everything and it just doesnt seem like this is te place for that.
    I like the pure writing that goes on here and would hate to see it demeaned or lessoned by selling out to corporate ideas.
    so , No thanks for the adsense.

    Yes for adsense.

  14. haven't you read what kashmir and the sacredpath wrote? you have adsense on your blog! but you can't control it. and of course you don't see the money :)
    i really hope an adfree upgrade is on its way.

  15. I vote for adsense

  16. I vote yes for adsense and other affiliates.

  17. Another vote for adsense.

  18. No adsense! My gosh, people pay good money to have websites without ads, and you guys want to *put* ads on yours?! If you wanted to wanted to make a profit from blogging you should have gone to one of those pay-per-post places. You read the rules and agreed to them. Deal.

    If ads are not for you then you will not have to put them on, if it does happen then most likely it will be an optional, payed for feature.

  20. say yes to adsense! or other less notable one! as long as the ads is pretty! ads can make a blog pretty!

  21. Please, adsense should be allowed. Thanks!

  22. yes please please

  23. please adsence should be allowed for blog

  24. basically adsence is not a joking thing, its a money making way, its a plan done by google for its advertising and marketing its site all around the world to reach the peak of the web. and its users, hence if the wordpress allows the adsence in its side bar it can be ease for all to access the adsence and they could miss use the chance hence i do not want to support this option, the people who knew the marketing mind only can understand what iam coming to say.... others can not... but getting adsence is something important.....

  25. If it's that important to you, bloggersiva, you can have adsense. All you have to do is go to wordpress.org, download the software and hire a web host. Done.

  26. i am sure wordpress have their reasons for notch making making adsense...

    http://www.riraito.wordpress.com

  27. Yes, at least a million of them a month.

  28. Yes we want adsense on wordpress.com

  29. I don't understand this at all. Before I signed up for a WordPress blog, I read the ToS and all the "about" stuff and then decided to go ahead. So why then, do all these people think that when WordPress was clear up front about not allowing adsense, that they should be harassing them to allow it now? Why didn't they just choose blogger instead?

    Seriously, I'm not a forum volunteer and often weeks go by that I'm not in here, but each time I have reason to use the forums, I see tons of the same adsense posts and I honestly marvel at the way the regular volunteers have not blown a gasket over having to give the same answers over and over to people who didn't read anything before they signed up... and then don't check the previously answered questions before posting yet another new one about adsense.

    I salute the volunteers today. You folks are way more patient than I ever could be.

  30. plzzzz..allow adsense on wordpress!!
