    There are quite a few topics on it here in the forums, but the short answer is no!

    The bottom line here is that there is no blogger initiated adsense or other advertising allowed on wordpress.com blogs at this time. Moreover the Terms of Service states prohibitions in section 2, 5th bullet http://wordpress.com/tos/

    the Content is not spam, and does not contain unethical or unwanted commercial content designed to drive traffic to third party sites or boost the search engine rankings of third party sites, or to further unlawful acts (such as phishing) or mislead recipients as to the source of the material (such as spoofing)

    Please carefully state what your “referral links” question is and how it relates to adsense so we can answer it.

    Sorry about that. My question was if referral / affiliate links are accepted. Not adsense, not banners.

    Thanks for the response.

    Pease read the information the link provided by our Moderator from beginning to end. It lays out the policy relating to all advertising. http://faq.wordpress.com/2005/12/08/adsense/

    If you wish to have an affiliate driven, monetized blog that can freely drive traffic to 3rd party affiliate sites then you are in the wrong place. We cannot do this with wordpress.com blogs.

    One discreet link to Amazon per blog is okay, but if the primary purpose of the blog is to drive traffic to affiliate programs that’s not allowed. If you’re not sure, contact support.

    Therefore, I recommend that you look into the other wordpress option. You can hire a web host very inexpensively. And you can download a free template from http://wordpress.org

    Ok, thank you for all of your responses. But I still don’t get some things:

    You are saying that One discreet link to Amazon per blog is okay. A link to Amazon is an affiliate one, no ?
    My blog purpose is not to drive traffic to affiliate programs. I’m posting everyday about IT, blogs, etc. and I found an interesting site and and I’m posting the site address with the affiliate link included. Is that okay or not ? Because I’m confused.
    I’m not creating a special page for the affiliate, a huge banner for it. Just a post and the affiliate.

    Thank you again for the responses.

    I guess your issue is not related to adsense which is the subject matter in this thread. And actually I’m not saying anything at all. The advertising policy linked to above states

    If you’re not sure, contact support.

    Support hours are 9-5 PM on weekdays and you can use this link http://wordpress.com/contact-support/

    Best wishes in getting this matter sorted. Also will you please bookmark this thread and post the response from staff that you get into this thread?
