    Someone is using my website for their ads, and I urgently need to have them removed. I also want to know how this can happen. Has my site been hacked?

    The blog I need help with is themusicalslave.com.

    Have you purchased the No Ads upgrade? If not, you will have ads on your site.

    Are you serious? You actually have to pay to not have ads?

    WordPress ads are part of the Terms of Service we agree to when we open a free account here. (http://en.wordpress.com/tos/)

    “Automattic reserves the right to display advertisements on your blog unless you have purchased an Ad-free Upgrade or a VIP Services account.”

    WordPress ads typically don’t show up very often. If the ads don’t include a statement like, “About these ads” then they aren’t from WordPress, and are more likely caused by malware, or because of a browser extension or toolbar you may have installed.

    part of how you get a “free” blog is because of the ads – the staff need to be fed and the three server farms paid for some how

    You either pay for hosting or you pay not to have ads. That’s why the No Ads upgrade exists; what did you think it was for?

    Exactly where are these ads appearing?

    Are they appearing below posts?
    If the ads you see are found at the end of blog posts then provided you see this small About These Ads link what you are seeing is WordPress.com generated advertising.

    Are they appearing on images?

    ok, thanks for the info!:) The ads appeared on my front page, but theyre gone now. I think it was just a bug, it was not the wordpress ads anyway.
