Tired of Google Adsense? Try WordPress WordAds

If you have publicly visible blog with a custom domain name on wordpress.com, you can now make money from online advertising on your blog. The service powered by Federated Media  called WordAds and you can apply for it here.

Before you get too excited, not every wordpress.com blog will be eligible for the program. The selection will be based on your traffic, your user engagement, the nature of your content, and the language.

Although, I think this is a great move by WordPress, but most of their big blogs are already part of other niche Ad networks. How do they plan to get them, it will be exciting to see their execution. That said,  I would say  only small mom & pop blogs will apply for now including us. 

According to WordPress.com blog, “You Deserve Better Than AdSense”. So, they are clearly going after Google’s AdSense. More power to them. Anything to give us an alternative to AdSense, I call it AWESOME!

    Hi, thanks for this information. I am now using wordads. It got approved for me in about a couple of weeks. Thanks to the nature of my blog I am beginning to see some earnings even after just a few days. I think this is better than adsense since it is based on traffic and engagement and not clicks. If you have a personal finance blog, No one is going to click the products advertised.
