WordAds has been a hit with WordPress.com publishers and WordPress VIPs who further embraced it after we launched WordAds 2.0. Today we are excited to announce that WordAds is available to any WordPress site via the AdControl plugin.
Built specifically for WordPress sites that want to earn income from advertising, WordAds is built for simplicity, allowing bloggers to focus on blogging and leave the monetization to your WordAds partner.
If you have a self-hosted WordPress.org sites there are four steps to get going with Wordads:
- Apply here at WordAds.co.
- Download and install the AdControl plugin here.
- Make sure that the Jetpack plugin is installed.
- Complete setup questions in your WordPress dashboard under Settings > WordAds

I have a wordpress.com site so this doesn’t apply to me, correct?

Hi Jon, I was running wordads nearly 3Y ago when I was part of wp.com. I am delighted to be running wordads again in my wp.org blog. The best thing about wordads is that is it not contextual and based on impressions. This suits my requirement well.
Hope to see this program grow and evolve. Big thank you to all responsible.
Hello, I am about porting my wordpress.com account to wordpress.org. The thing is I have a Wordads acct which is running. I have not yet gotten my MArch and April 2017 earnings, Would my switching to wordpressdotorg affect my ability to collect what is already owed to me, or would it affect my wordads account. Would my account keep running when I move?
March earnings will be published by the end of the week; April earnings, however, won’t be published until the end of May as payments are sent around the last day of the following month. If you earned less than $100 in a given month, your earnings will carry over to the next month instead.
If you move from WordPress.com to the self-hosted version of WordPress, you’ll have 3 options:
I hope this clarifies things a bit. If you have more questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch!
