Why do ads appear in my WordPress blog?

How do I remove them?

Sometimes, your readers might notice an ad on one of your WordPress blog pages. There is no reason for panic.

As WordPress is a free service, they sometimes display discreet advertisements in the blogs, for the purpose of keeping the free features free.

When you’re logged on, you don’t see the ads, and only a small part of the page views will contains ads.

If you want to eliminate ads altogether from your blog, you can buy the No-ads upgrade, which costs USD 29.97 per year. To buy, go to the Dashboard of your blog and select Upgrades near the top left corner.

A user of a blog for which I’m the web editor, alerted me of a Google ad on the front page. We decided not to buy the upgrade, but let WordPress display their occasional ads to earn some money that in turn gives us great and free services.
