There is only one advertising program called WordAds at WordPress.com and it’s for blogs on their own domains. This is the homepage for the WordAds program: http://www.wordads.co/
Aside from a blog being accepted into WordAds, no blogger initiated advertising, retailing or reselling the work or products 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
If you do require an ecommerce site, advertising and/or affiliate links you can hire a web host and get a free software install from http://wordpress.org Refer to > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
I’m so sorry to bring the “link topic” up again.
I just started yesterday – it’s all very exciting. At the same time I’m a little bit concerned to be in breach of something. Therefore I better ask …
To stay within the wordpress.com code of conducts, I need to understand if I am allowed to refer to services or smaller companies I use? I am not related to these companies, get paid or anything it’s simply a recommendation, I share my experiences.
One of my few posts (remember I just got started) is about delivery services in Singapore and I referred to my favorite . Maybe I am not allow to do this? Can you pls let me know, so that I can delete the links in case they are not allowed?
Thank you so much and best regards
Hi … already back again.
… Ahh, ok. I just read the affiliated links article and I guess I’m safe. The vendors doesn’t tie a link backwards to my account, they doesn’t even know me, except as a customer.
Very helpful, thank you.
Yes, that is fine.
