    Does word press allow advertising or promotion of web-sites? I belong to Clickbank.com and wanted to add a link to one of my posts that would direct readers to another site. I pasted code and the post said click here in blue. When I clicked it I should have been directed to the site. Instead I was led to wordpress-types of blogs. I also put in the URL of the website under links and it didn’t appear on my post. Thank you for any help.

    The blog I need help with is pdykie.wordpress.com.

    Did your read the types of blogs allowed and not allowed in the support entry that was linked to? Those links are NOT allowed and they can get your blog suspended.

    In addition to AdSense-type ads, please do not use the following services on your blog: sponsored / paid posts including PayPerPost, ReviewMe, and Smorty; affiliate / referral links to the following domains: usercash, clickbank, clickhop, cashrocks, payingcash; clicktrackers (and any similar) and any promotion of the “I made a million on the internet and so can you” type of advertising (i.e. MLM, network marketing, cash gifting, etc.). Paid or sponsored post content is also prohibited. Please check our page on types of blogs for more information about what content is and isn’t welcome on WordPress.com. http://en.support.wordpress.com/advertising/

    You’re welcome. 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.

    hello. I read through all the advertising requirements about WordPress.com. I just want to make sure its all right for me to post any banner ads or text links in my blog? I write about gardening tips and I write relevant content. I am an affiliate publisher. I just have my blog domain mapped. So I am asking you if it is OK to go forward with the text links, hyperlinks,and banner ads? The adverts and the site is all about gardening and gardening tips and products.

    Please let me know about your answers to this question..

    Thanks.

    hello. here is my blog

    handy-gardening-tips.org – it is a very new blog site. I have an article that is still in draft. I am an affiliate of another garden center advertisers. I am quite apprehensive of doing the banner ads, text links etc. for I do not want to violate your terms and conditions and end up losing my site.

    Read what I posted above at every one of those links https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/is-advertising-or-promotion-of-sites-allowed-on-word-press?replies=7#post-697745 If you have any intention of posting any affiliate links don’t do it without running them by Staff. The support link will be reactivated Monday am (UTC) time.
