WordPress Announces WordAds To Compete With Google AdSense [News] wordpressWordPress has announced that they are integrating their own way for bloggers to make money. They have announced a new program called WordAds that allows website owners to show ads on their blog, and not have to rely on Google AdSense. The official WordPress blog announced the program, and took a little shot at Google in the process:


“Over the years one of the most frequent requests on has been to allow bloggers to earn money from their blog through ads. We’ve resisted advertising so far because most of it we had seen wasn’t terribly tasteful, and it seemed like Google’s AdSense was the state-of-the-art, which was sad. You pour a lot of time and effort into your blog and you deserve better than AdSense.”

Not all blogs will be eligible for the program. Blogs must be publicly visible and have a custom domain name to take part. If you would like to apply for the program, check out the sign up page on the official WordPress site. You must already have the custom domain name and blog set up to even apply for entry.
