    Which is why, when I teach blogging and social media, I deliberately choose WordPress.com and other ad-free platforms, so we can concentrate on actually using the platform for communication. I figure if someone wanted to get into advertising for a career, they’d have done it by now, along with the tens of thousands of professionals already in the field.

    Yup. I’ve seen many blogs go to crap when ads enter the picture.

    And Twitter streams. Over the last week especially I’ve had more junk requests to Fan people’s aunt’s crochet shop Facebook pages and Get 400 New Followers Now! I wrote a post in response, and it’s very satisfying to reply to spammers with “GET 250,000 NEW FOLLOWERS GUARANTEED!

    Count me as one more voice for AdSense on WordPress.com. I’m a total newbie, but from what I gather the .org version allows adsense? I will now scour the forums for “what’s the diff between .com and .org,” followed shortly therafter by “how to migrate from .com to .org” Sounds like I will be seeking a new host, and writing more html myself? Much easier for me to just stay here… Gimme AdSense! But, as a fair-minded Libertarian, I fully respect your right to offer your product as you choose. Thanks, WP!

    Yes, the .org version allows adsense and whatever you want. There is no need to scour the forums; there’s a sticky thread at the very top on the different types of WP.

    Having recently migrated from wp.com to wp.org I am still for keeping .com ads-free. wp.com is for blogging for the pleasure of it, for anything else, wp.org is much better suited, and I would like it to stay that way.

    I really dont understand what the complaint is all about. wp.com terms and conditions is NO ADSENSE.
    wp.org offers facility for adsense,so migrate to wp.org and have as much adsense as you want.If adsense is allowed,wp.com will be dominated by the moguls and this will in turn squeeze out those who cannot afford it. So keep it that way.

    Hi, I started my blog just a few months now. All this is new to me.

    Today I signed up to be part of an ad network. When I got to the part of adding adify’s tags to my blog, I started reading the forum and realized it can’t be done. Not that I was expecting to make money! I wanted to get familiar with online media, get some practice on how the platform works and learn something new. But I guess not. At least not here.

    I’ll stick to trying to learn CSS and maybe I’ll upgrade.

    I think adsense it not a good thing for your blog, after coming to terms with it, i think people like a blog more without any ads, and it helps you focus creating an more interesting blog instead of advertising!

    Like others have said, keep it ad free. I agree and understand why now :-)

    @bftrader-Just so you know, WordPress.com is not ad free. It’s just that users can’t run their own ads.
