WordPress.com partner with Federated Media (FM) and introduce WordAds to WordPress.com bloggers who want to make money.
WordPress.COM (not WordPress.org) is one of the most popular free blog hosting site. Previously, you are not allowed to have advertisements on free WordPress.com blogs to make money online.
Now, WordPress.com partner with Federated Media (FM) and introduce WordAds (don’t confuse with Google’s “AdWords”) to WordPress.com bloggers who want to make money.
WordAds is 100% optional and is designed for bloggers who would like to earn money from their blogs by showing high quality ads from brand advertisers. FM is well known for representing top blogs with high quality ads for sites like AppleInsider, Bakerella, and BoingBoing.
Keep in mind that signing up for WordAds doesn’t necessary mean your blog will be accepted. The selection will be based on level of traffic and engagement, type of content, and language of your blog. In short, you need a quality blog.
