    my blog doesn’t have wordpress.com in it as I’ve upgraded to have my own blog name http://www.thegoodlifewithkids.com
    I thought this would enable me to use the amazon widget? Please help.
    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is thegoodlifewithkids.com.

    First of all, even if you have a free or updated blog on WordPress.com, Amazon widget code contains such code which is stripped out for security reasons. And Amazon affiliate text links are, in general, banned from WP.com as a violation of the Terms of Service.

    1. Read the type of blogs WordPress.com prefers > http://en.wordpress.com/types-of-blogs/
    2. Read their advertising policy > http://en.support.wordpress.com/advertising/
    3. And have a look at their affiliate linking policy > http://en.support.wordpress.com/affiliate-links/

    Now, if you still want a monetized blog and you are planning for adding the Amazon widget, then, it will not be among the kind of blogs that are allowed here, that is, you are in the wrong place. Your best bet is to spend $5 – $7 per month on web hosting and get a free software install from wordpress.ORG.

    Hope this helps !

    We allow affiliate links on WordPress.com, including from Amazon.com, but you will not be able to use the Amazon widget on a WordPress.com site.
