Wordpress Error: Account suspended.

16 replies
This is madness, I have seen people having their paypal account suspended but this is my first time seeing wordpress.com account suspended.

I try to login to wordpress.com today to check my state but this is what I saw
"Error: Account suspended."

I don't even have any idea what have i done to get my account suspended at all. It's still working fine yesterday. What should I do now?

    You probably pointed a link to a page they didn't like. They're very finnicky about monetizing your blogs in any way. Mine was once suspended because I posted a link to a site that linked to a clickbank product. Yeowch!

    I think you can still log into your account to get at the articles and things you've posted, so you might want to just consider migrating your content over to another site like Blogger, where nobody cares what you link to.

    Have you been advertising affiliate links on it?

    If so then that is almost certainly the reason.

    Wordpress is really harsh on affiliate marketing...

    It's not a good platform to use, find something else and move on. The chances of you getting that account back are very limited.

    I never recommend people use wordpress.com if they want to make money with their blogs. While the site is ranked highly (atleast it used to be) it isnt worth it, because you can only like to one affiliate product, and as with anything if they dont like that or any other link you have, you are toast.

    If you want to get started and do a free blog that makes you money I would use blogger. It isnt the best, but it is free and you can monetize. On the other hand you might want to consider getting your own domain and building up some online real estate that is yours. You can even get hosting free if you look around carefully.

    Well, I'm glad I have all my site hosted in wordpress.org
    The result I'm still using wordpress.com is because of the wp-stat and wp-amaski plugin which require the wordpress.com API

    Anyway having similar experience before and how do you handle it?

    Host your own WP sites, stop giving control of your internet real estate to someone else.

    Most hosting accounts come with Fantastico, which includes the ability to install WP with a single click.
    have a great day

    Rosetrees is right. Your API key will work on self hosted blogs. Do not mess with WP hosted blogs they will shut you down in a heart beat, blacklist you domain name and your IP address. I used to use them to build backlink blogs, but the pleasure is not worth the pain.

    I thought you hosted your Wordpress account already? Or is this another one of yours with the wordpress.com subdomain?

    If your site is hosted on your own domain, then you only need your WP.com account for the API key. You're probably hosting a blog on the wordpress.com address and they took offense to that.

    I got a similar message when I tried to login in earlier.

    I simply reset my password and was then able to login.

      I just have a blog with a few articles and no affiliate links on wordpress.com and use my API key on my self hosted blogs where I can put whatever I like on them.

    Your blog was suspended and cannot be returned.

    You had agreed to all the following when you signed up.
    Types of Blogs WordPress.com
    And here are some examples of blogs that are banned from WordPress.com (all of these fall under the general heading of "spam blogs", or splogs, and we will be deleted as soon as we find them or they get reported):

    * Scraper blogs: Blogs that take content from other blogs and re-publish it without permission (this is sometimes called scraping). If a blog contains all or mostly stolen and unoriginal content, it's gone!
    SEO blogs: Blogs that are written for search engines instead of humans. These blogs are dedicated to trying to fool Google and other search engines into ranking them or the sites they link to highly. WordPress.com is not meant for this type of activity.
    Affiliate marketing blogs: Blogs with the primary purpose of driving traffic to affiliate programs and get-rich-quick schemes ("Make six figures from home!!", "20 easy steps to top profits!!", etc). This includes multi-level marketing (MLM) blogs and pyramid schemes.
