  3. This one is made by Auto Power Blogs and this is going to be my own (which I was talking about). So does the Auto Power Blogs make people blogs that are not allowed? And if my own is wrongly done, how should I do it right and where can I find help? Thank you again for your help.

  4. is not hosted on WordPress.COM so nobody here really cares what you do there. is hosted on WordPress.COM - stick an affiliate link on it and it will probably be suspended.

  5. Hi auxclass! Thanks for your help. I really needed it. And now I know that Auto Power Blogs does provide a product which isnĀ“t allowed. I will take care that there will be no links. Thanks again =)

    Affiliate blogs are not allowed. These are the only exceptions when it comes to posting any affiliate links at all.

    In a nutshell no blogger initiated advertising, retailing or reselling the work 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

    The advertising exceptions noted in support documentation are for high traffic blogs that qualify for and are accepted into the Ad Control program, and for extremely high traffic blogs that qualify and are accepted into the paid VIP hosting program.

    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 Refer to >

  10. I almost wish to encourage dumb affiliate marketers to put a lot of work into building their blogs, including buying ALL the upgrades, before reporting them. But I just don't have the time I used to...sigh.

  12. Raincuster....

    I went to you "blog" and it looks dumb as hell. Slow down calling poeple dumb affiliate marketers

  13. Affiliate marketing is a violation of the Terms of Service - so what else should "raincuster" call them?? By the way you spelled her name wrong, that is very bad Karma.

    Please note that the definition of "dumb"' includes anyone going into a business on a blog who does not perform due diligence when it comes to setting up an affiliate marketing blog. Dumb is not reading the Terms of Service carefully. Dumb is not reading the policies carefully. Dumb is not going to Staff and asking specific questions about the issues involved when it comes to making business decisions.

    I could go on about how many dumbbells who cannot ever communicate well in English and who think they can make buckets to money from affiliate marketing that raincoaster and I have met online over the years but I won't. Instead I'll direct you to an excellent video The Definition of Stupidity is 70 minutes in duration and it's worth watching. Note: a 30 second delay before the video.
