WordPress Announces WordAds

WordPress WordAds

WordPress.com, the hosted version of WordPress.org, announced today that it was opening its platform to advertising.

Until now, bloggers who used WordPress.com were not allowed to monetize their blogs through banner advertisement.

WordPress said its new advertising platform was to be called WordAds. The ads on the new platform would be provided in partnership with Federated Media.

WordPress said the new platform would be “better than AdSense”, but did not go into details as to how it would be better or different.

What do you think? It this going to be a truly new and better form of advertising or just another walled-garden?
