Why are video ads on my site?

    At the very bottom of my first page (beyond continue), various random video ads keep showing up. How do they get there? HOW CAN I STOP THIS? Thanks for any help.

    The blog I need help with is greenmountaintimberframesvt.com.


    WordPress.com started running ads on blogs here in 2006.

    From the support document on advertising:

    Note: To support the service (and keep free features free), we sometimes run advertisements. We try hard to only run them in limited places. If you would like to completely eliminate ads from appearing on your blog, we offer the No-Ads Upgrade.

    From the Terms of Service:

    10. Advertisements. Automattic reserves the right to display advertisements on your blog unless you have purchased an Ad-free Upgrade or a VIP Services account.


    They are usually single YouTube videos placed at the end of posts. Way less intrusive than pop-ups. Your readers won’t be bothered unless they actually click to play them. It’s an acceptable deal to me.
