Ad Program for WordPress Sites

A unique ad program that enables you to focus on creating great content while generating income.

How can I make money from my site?

If you write content regularly and have already built an audience, generating ad revenue from your WordPress blog is a great next step. 

Ads generate “passive income”, meaning you’re able to make money from articles you previously published without needing to put in any additional work or upkeep. You can start generating revenue with your site without spending time selling products or incorporating affiliate links into all of your content.

Display ads, like those generated from WordAds, require minimal configuration upfront and essentially maintain themselves. You can skip setting up an e-commerce framework, and you don’t have to update and keep track of affiliate links. Additionally, site visitors won’t be required to create accounts with your website, like most membership sites necessitate.

Jetpack now includes the official WordPress.com advertising program that lets you monetize your WordPress site.

Once active, Jetpack will display high-quality ads from our approved advertisers on your site allowing you to earn money when readers view an ad.

WordPress ad revenue settings with Jetpack

By default, advertisements are displayed below every post, page, and the first article on your homepage. You can further increase your WordPress ad revenue by using the Ads widget (included with Jetpack) to place advertisements at the top of your site, and to any widgetized area.

In addition to being optimized for use on all WordPress sites, WordAds are catered to each one of your site visitors. Most WordPress ads are generated based on users’ geographic locations, technologies such as retargeting (when you focus on returning site visitors), and a list of approved advertisers to ensure that ads are relevant to your audience members.

WordAds is available to customers with a Jetpack Security or Complete paid plan.

How Much Can I Earn with WordAds?

The amount of WordPress ad revenue you can earn varies depending on a variety of factors, including your site’s traffic. A greater number of site visitors increases the likelihood that someone will view or click on your banner ads, and therefore increase your earnings. Jetpack makes it easy to track your WordPress ad revenue on your dedicated ad dashboard.


How often will I receive payment?

WordPress ad revenue is calculated daily and finalized around the second week of the following month. Payments are sent on or about the last day of the following month. If you earned less than $100 in a given month, your earnings carry over to the next month.
