“About These Ads
The site you just visited is part of WordPress.com. There are two reasons why you might see ads on a WordPress.com site:
- The site is part of the WordAds program and has elected to show ads to earn money from their site.
- The site is one of the sites hosted on WordPress.com that has not purchased the No Ads upgrade, and we are running ads to cover the costs of operating the site for the user. We run these types of ads sparingly in an attempt to interfere as little as possible with the experience of reading a site and for logged in users we don’t show ads at all. There’s more info about our approach to ad serving in this blog post.
In both of the above cases, the ad you saw could be coming from a number of ad partners including Sharethrough, Federated Media, or AdSense. The ads change depending on factors like your location and the type of site you are visiting.
If you are a WordPress.com user and you would like to permanently remove all ads from your site, please take a look at our No Ads upgrade.” This is what you will see if you click on about these ads which is placed directly above the ad.
There are definitely ads placed on your word press blogs unless you have paid for an upgrade. I know this for a fact. I have 3 word press blogs and I have seen ads at the bottom of the blogs. Also when I visit someone’s word press blog I see the ads at the bottom of the blog. I am clarifying this for some readers who commented that there were no ads on your word press blog unless you were compensated for them. And that is the way word press works.
I have been to the post office this morning, the bank and Bergner’s stopping off at Mickey D’s for a chicken sandwich. Lots of good buys this morning at Bergner’s.
I hope you all have a good week. Stay safe and be happy!!
