I’ve recently upgraded my wordpress account from free to “business” I’d like to have ads on my blog so I can monetize it a bit. What is the best option? Is there a particular plugin or service I should be using? Also any tips or best practices I should know would be much appreciated! :)
Hi @joshwahler, you’re welcome to enable WordAds since that comes with your Business plan.
My biggest tip is to work on your traffic. Don’t buy paid traffic (it doesn’t really help advertisers either), but do work on getting your organic following. You’ll want to build up to thousands of views every month. We have some tips on gaining traffic and followers here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/getting-more-views-and-traffic/
Once you’ve got a pretty steady following, you’d be welcome to apply for other ad networks, too.
