    Hi! Advertising is not allowed on blogs. You can find full details at:

    That embed code will be removed and the ad will not display.



    ok thanks a lot.!!



    Hi Again

    Is there some posibility to get i allowed then.? I´ve allready have some advertising bannes on the site, should i remove this a.s.a.p.??

    I though that i could pay something for the blog thats make i okay?


    Hi. Yes, you will need to remove those ads you have added to the sidebar. Advertising is only allowed on self-hosted blogs. If you were to set up a self-hosted site you would be able to run ads.

    You can find more information about the difference between and at:


    Is “self-hosted” the same as owning the domain name? I paid for my blog’s name, and I am going to pay for the Custom CSS I will have put up soon. I was hoping to earn back some of the money I am spending by selling ad space. I can understand why I wouldn’t be allowed to put up ads if my blog was totally free, but I am forking over some cash to WordPress, so does that allow me the benefit of selling ad space?



    hello. I was wondering if someone can help me out with this…..
    My problem: I added a txt widget so I can add a second smaller background on top of my larger to my blog. I put
    <div style=”position:fixed;top:0;left:243px;background:black url(‘URL of image’) repeat scroll;width:66%;height:100%;z-index:-1000;float:left;”></div>
    in the text widget and when I preview it My smaller background doesn’t re size properly when I resize the internet window , it seems like the left side doesn’t move but the right side moves to re size to the internet windows size . Please help asap. Thank you



    The cost of the WordPress.COM upgrades is so minor compared to regular self hosting,I am amazed you are complaining at all. self hosted sites are $ 10 to $ 25 per month and up. Add that when something does not work on a self hosted site you are the Tech Support.

    Self hosted is not the same as “owning the domain name” (you don’t “own” it just registering your use of it).

    Self hosting is when you have a host where you do all the work, install the software, do the upgrading when a new software release comes out, make backups, choose Plug-in’s and install them to do functions that are built into the widgets.

    More on the difference:

    Much easier on WordPress.COM.


    Well, I wasn’t sure what the difference was. I didn’t mean to complain. Sorry for troubling you.



    Glad to help, no bother, if something bothers me I tend not to answer at all.

    I have both types of sites and it is much easier here. Some people start / build a site here and when traffic builds they move the site from WordPress.COM so they can accept adds. However from what I see, you need a ton of traffic to break even.

    good luck



    What nobody is mentioning is, if you have 1000 or so hits a day you can get the Ad Control upgrade, which allows you to put ads on your blog and split the revenue with WordPress 50/50.

    If you have less readership than that, it’s not worth putting ads on anyway.


    Even 1000 per day is iffy depending on your content and demographics. The type of content draws a certain type of audience (visitor), and some types of audiences are more likely to click on ads than others.
