    So new, I have nothing on my blog/website yet. Just trying to make sure that I can promote my own business. But the terms and conditions seem to indicate, “no advertising.”

    <p>Blogs that violate our advertising policy or fall into one of the following categories are not allowed on WordPress.com:</p>

    • Scraper blogs: Blogs that take content from other blogs and re-publish it without permission (this is sometimes called scraping). If a blog contains stolen content, it’s gone!
    • SEO blogs: Blogs that are written for search engines instead of humans. These blogs are dedicated to trying to fool Google and other search engines into ranking them or the sites they link to highly. WordPress.com is not meant for this type of activity.
    • Affiliate marketing blogs: Blogs with the primary purpose of driving traffic to affiliate programs and get-rich-quick schemes (“Make six figures from home!!”, “20 easy steps to top profits!!”, etc). This includes multi-level marketing (MLM) blogs and pyramid schemes. To be clear, people writing their own original book, movie or game reviews and linking them to Amazon, or people linking to their own products on Etsy do NOT fall into this category. Here is a thread in the support forums that talks more about which affiliate links are OK or not OK.
    • Warez blogs: Blogs that promote pirated copies of ebooks, software packages, music, movies, games, etc.
    • Automated blogs: Blogs that are generated by computers, including randomly generated blogs, blogs that re-publish press releases, marketing material, search engine results, link dumps or any other mass-produced content.

    <p>If you find a blog that violates our rules please report it. If you have feedback or questions, please contact support@wordpress.com.</p>
