Is WordPress Experimenting with Google Ads?

March 13, 2007

UPDATE: yes, they are. Phew…thought someone was doing something strange on the blog.

———–Old post starts here——  

We found Google ads yesterday on a blog post on our wordpress.com blog.  My understanding is that people cant put Google ads on wordpress hosted blogs.

The ads showed up once and then they disappeared with a refresh…..this morning we found them on the same article again.  The ads act much like the Lochness monster…but this morning we got a screenshot as proof of their existence.  Look right under the title of the article….

These are not our ads (I have a google account where we advertise but not an adsense account for showing other companies’ ads). Again, the ads are no longer on the original post (just once yesterday and once this morning – that we saw).  The original article is located at https://forsalebylocals.wordpress.com/2007/02/01/interview-with-constructora-concasa/ for comparison. 

Anyone else seeing this? Has it been announced by WordPress?  Update:  YES Is this old news?  Update:  YES
