    I know right now Adsense\Adwords is not allowed and at the moment I do not have the blog statistics to even apply for such things, but in the future I think it would be great if WordPress.com could allow adsense.

    WordPress is definitely the best blogging tool but no Adsense is kind of a downer (For the long run with my blog). I know you guys are smart and I hope you can find a way to allow adsense without spammers and such being a problem.

    Anyway just wanted to let you know there are people out here supporting adsense for wordpress lol.

    This has been much discussed in the past. Engtech links to the adsense tag so that the poster can see the many previous discussions on the topic and the reasons why it’s not currently allowed. (And not just due to spammers)

    I’ve gone ahead and deleted a number of posts as I for one am tired of repeating this discussion over and over again so lets not.

    …Why would WordPress.com want to let you make money off a service they’re giving for free?

    Personally, if someone wanted to make money off a service I was giving them for free, I wouldn’t let them keep the earnings, but that’s just me.

    So that you feel more inclined to buy upgrades?

    Most of us have been buying the upgrades just fine without adsense.

    kfsone, isn’t this the third ancient Adsense thread you’ve bumped today? What makes you think the answer will change if you do that?

    Maybe they think drmike is malnourished and in need of steak.

    Quite possibly. I wish there were a way to filter forum results so you could avoid certain posters and certain issues. After the fifth Adsense thread in a day, you just want to avoid them lest you get snarky. And god forbid I should get snarky: I have such a sunny personality most of the time.

    Could always delete on sight. Rather not do that though. Sure staff wouldn’t think too highly of it either.

    no no no. You need to have the hosting elsewhere. You cannot edit your theme files directly here, because we all use the same ones, and unless you want to join the VIP program ($600 per month), you cannot have Adsense on a blog hosted by wordpress.com

    If you buy any or ALL of the upgrades and you try to put ads on your blog, your blog will be deleted. Ads are not allowed unless you’re in the VIP program.

    You cannot purchase an upgrade to edit a wordpress com theme. You can’t have adsense on a wordpress.com blog. These blogs are hosted by wordpress on a multi-user blogging platform. If edits are allowed to be made to one blog that would affect all blogs with the same theme.

    But you can do both by hiring a web host and have him download blogging software from http://wordpress.org because it’s different software suited for self hosting.

    Just for reference, that’s not funny if it was meant to be. Some of us help out and eat at those soup kitchens and see other folks who have to do the same.

    Quote from drmike: “I’ve gone ahead and deleted a number of posts as I for one am tired of repeating this discussion over and over again so lets not. “

    So, any new member who starts a blog here at WordPress and wants to know something that you are tired of discussing gets this nasty attitude? Wouldn’t it be better to direct these questions from newcomers to the old discussions/old posts? The results would likely be: Happier new users, and the appearance of more professionalism from the WordPress staff.
