  6. There is only one advertising program called WordAds at and it’s for blogs on their own domains. 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 blogs. E-commerce transactions via shopping carts and the like cannot be conducted on free blogs from and being free hosted by Paid content and/or sponsored content is not allowed.

    On free hosted blog we can use a contact form and/or a PayPal donation button for sale of only products or services created or provided by ourselves.

    There is no upgrade you can purchase from that changes any of that. If you do require an ecommerce site, advertising, affiliate links, paid or sponsored content you can hire a web host and get a free software install from

    Yes, you can. Note this narrow exception in italics as well:

    Blogs that violate our advertising policy or fall into one of the following categories are not allowed on

    Affiliate marketing blogs: Blogs with the primary purpose of driving traffic to affiliate programs and get-rich-quick schemes (“Make six figures from home!!”, “20 easy steps to top profits!!”, etc). This includes multi-level marketing (MLM) blogs and pyramid schemes. To be clear, people writing their own original book, movie or game reviews and linking them to Amazon, or people linking to their own products on Etsy do NOT fall into this category. Here is a thread in the support forums that talks more about which affiliate links are OK or not OK.

  8. Thank you for your help, but what I don't understand is if it's possibile to subscribe my blog into wordads. And how I can do it.
    Thank you

    Under what condition will a blogger be allowed to make money from his blogs through placed advertisement? And how does a journalist blogger that spends money on his content sustain himself on the job if he is not allowed to place adverts in his blog even if he has paid for the blod

  10. We do not deal with WordAds issue here on these forums at all. Your blog is not on it's own domain and that's a requirement for applying to the program.

    Direct your attention to:
    Apply if appropriate
    If you must contact WordAds Staff here's the link

  11. d how does a journalist blogger that spends money on his content sustain himself on the job if he is not allowed to place adverts in his blog even if he has paid for the blod

    No one here pays for a blog. provides free blogs and free hosting.

    How anyone chooses to sustain themselves in any occupation they choose is not the concern of WordPress com. If you intend to be a pro-blogger hire a web host and set up a install as that's what free software installs are for.

    Anyone who thinks they are a business person and is not aware that one spends must spend some money up front to set themselves up in business to make much more money needs to rethink their plans.

    Professional Part- and Full-Timers: These bloggers represent 18% of our total group. They are independent bloggers who either use blogging as a way to supplement their income, or consider it their full-time job. Most of these professional bloggers don’t consider blogging their primary source of income. This group primarily blogs about personal musings and technology

  12. @gcc53 - you have a 5 day old blog with no real content and traffic - you need a lot of traffic to make any money from WordAds (or any ads for that matter) - people that know much more than I about these things indicate you need 1,000 or more page views a day to make even token money from ads.
