@szakacsszabolcs-There’s fantasy and there’s reality. We don’t deal with fantasy here in the Support forums. (Off Topic is another story.)
So while you cannot run Adsense on your WordPress.COM blog today (read the two FAQs that teck07 linked to if you haven’t yet), tomorrow is another day. Of course, we’ve been waiting on that day for at least 2 years or so and if you read any of the numerous previous forum discussions on Adsense you’d have a better picture.
@kenstein-rather than judging by one contentious thread (where I will point out to you that it was the Original Poster who started the conflagration), as rain said, there are thousands of helpful support threads in this forum. Probably the best example of how not to behave in a forum is the OP’s behavior in this thread.
I believe many of the poster IGNORE the sticky thread when they first arrived in this forum.
It says “8 Things To Know BEFORE Posting in WordPress.Com Forums” so please read that before do anything in this forum.
Keep this forum peaceful! :D
@yohanesniko: Exactly. The adsense thing is arguably the single most irritating question in the forum: reappears every couple of days or so, always by people who won’t read FAQs or stickies or other relevant threads – and always by people who imagine they’ll gain money out of a blog with zero to five comments per post…
actually, adsense used to be available at wordpress with several different adsense widgets, it was amazing really. They’ll probably bring it back later.
@shogunx, I don’t think user generated advertising was ever allowed here on the wordpress.COM free hosting service, but then again I’ve only been here for two and a half years.
You’re probably talking about the free software available from WordPress.ORG rather than the hosted blogs using custom software here at WordPress.COM. They are very different things, particularly when it comes to policy.
Hi,I been using WP.com for a while and I must say that you guys are doing a great job. Before, having a weblog was such a big thing requiring so many skills. Now, people just like me, without much knowledge of webmastering or any programming language can enjoy having a blog. I sure many are grateful to you, the executive team.
Concerning the Adsense issue, I believe that your end-users have been sending you a strong signal of what they want to achieve with WP! We all want to make some money leisurely.It has been a revolution and now it is a reality. I respect the policy about WP.com not allowing any ad. Is it any, if I am wrong please correct me. However, change is an integral part of evolution! Staging is only making you losing members. Thanks
Well, I think I was too lazy as many to read the FAQ first. The things that confuse me now is that some are saying that it is impossible and others that they are working on it since two years now and in the FAQ it is said that WP was not created in that spirit, I mean to optimize search engine or something like that!!!! Anyway,is there a way to make money on WP.com…??? because I really like to stick with it…Thanks
To make money on WP.com, you need to upgrade your blog to a VIP blog and pay a lot each month. Look at FAQs for pricing, but it’s a lot of money and only for big time blogs like CNN, FOX News, etc. that are hosted here. It’s cheaper/more profitable, to get a blog on another host (there’s dozens out there) if you want to make money.
A lot means, like six hundred dollars. And you have to have a half-million hits a month or thereabouts to be considered.
To make money on WP.com, start a business and use your blog to raise your profile. That’s really about it. Any businessperson will tell you it costs money to make money.
I like the wordpress.com the way it is now. The fact that wordpress.com developed from an open source software and the spirit that no ads is allowed here make wp.com stand out among other blogging service provider. I absolutely agree that no ads is allowed in wp.com, there should be now and there should be in the future. I HATE reading a blog with so many ads in it so I don’t want people to see any ads in my blog too.
I’m proud to become a wordpress user. :)
hmmm…weird. You can’t put adsense on your blogs? Bummer! I can. =)

Don’t spam our forums with junk like that. Mods, please remove
Wow, this thread reached legendary status. So much so that it generated quite a few hits on my blog so thank you. My issue is this, when someone asks a simple question, you don’t have to reply like a self righteous, uptight snot. Ms. Paige did just that and I called her out, big friggin’ deal. If you’re gonna be a snot, don’t bitch when getting called out. It’s that simple.
And to the rest of you pompous, pretentious interweb experts, maybe if you actually spent a little time out in public, you wouldn’t be so socially retarded.
Ya’ll have a great day!
Wow I dropped in on this post and am shocked at the kind of responses I’m seeing from the wordpress experts/people. I always thought of wordpress as a friendly community where the pros where patient and wanted to help the less informed. Guess not. As for the original question nd reply that the answer is already listed / located in the forums… if lots of people continue to ask this question it should be a pretty clear sign to to wordpress that the intuitive nature of the forums might need improvement.
You’re absolutely right. At the moment that thing up top, “Check out our Frequently Asked Questions then Search the Forums”, calls for the intuitive powers of a psychic. We should add more detailed instructions in red; 48pt bold capitals of course. Better still, add a whole front page in red for the “less informed”. Like, say, “English for Dummies”.
Adsense questions are annoying. Especially since it’s the very first tag on the very front page of forum questions. Not to mention that it is sticky-noted at the top.
I think it’s clear to anyone who looks around the forums that nobody here lowers the bar until they get hit out of the blue with the kind of things chapelhillbilly came up with. Those were obnoxious remarks, fully out of line and the idea that any member of the public is obligated to tolerate and/or indulge them is frankly insane.
If you like him so much, you can help him, sweetie.
The language doesn’t fit the topic!Don,really stepped out of line….And so did raincoaster…
Exactly!I’m being spammed like I’m the only one that,has a browser???
