Why are ads still showing up in our blog after we upgraded to NO ADS?

  1. Hi, We paid to not have ads on our blog by purchasing the No-Ads upgrade. They are still showing up on our blog. Please remove all ADS from our blog.
    Thanks!

    The blog linked to your WordPress.com username is not even a free hosted WordPress.com blog so I guess you aren't referring to it. Is this the blog you are referring to? http://souzablog.com/

  3. Yes. This is the blog.

  4. Well you have added several affiliate ads yourself - you need to review the Terms of service

    There is only one advertising program called WordAds at WordPress.com and it’s for blogs on their own domains. This is the homepage for the WordAds program: 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/

  6. PS - if the ads are words that link to advertisers then you need to fix your browser - you have a plug-in that is adding the ads you also see

  7. I just figured it all out...thanks for all the help!
