Can you place ads on WordPress
A lot of people are saying that you can’t place ads on wordpress, and some people say you can make money on wordpress, I am confused. I bout my hosting and domain name from hostgator. I just want to attach wordpress to my site and pay $17 a year. Can I place my own ads this way. Someone please explain, I don’t want to get shut down.
The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)
No. Please read this so you comprehend that when you purchase a domain and domain mapping that’s what you get and nothing more. Nothing else changes.
Before Upgrading – Important Notes
Same Rules Apply – The Domain Mapping Upgrade does not enable the permission to use advertising, any kind of prohibited code, or upload additional themes or plugins. With the upgrade, your blog will still be hosted here at WordPress.com, which means that you will not have FTP access to your files and you will still be required to abide by our Terms of Service. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/
In a nutshell no blogger initiated advertising, retailing or reselling the work 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 have any further questions about advertising and/or affiliate links and/or ecommerce on a free blog from and being free hosted by wordpress.COM please contact Staff directly using this link after the Memorial Day long weekend has ended and the link has been reactivated. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/
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 bout my hosting and domain name from hostgator.
If you bought a domain name and hosting through someone other than WordPress.com, then you need to seek assistance from the good people over at the forums on WordPress.org
Some people confuse WordPress.ORG and WordPress.COM (which is where we are). These links will explain the difference:

It seems you need to be over at support for self-hosted WordPress http://wordpress.org/support/
Great catch! I missed that. :) Time for lunch.
I think they are on Hostgator now and want to move to WordPress.COM and have ads here. Cut their hosting costs.
