Search results show a different site

Removing the WordPress.com ribbon

This is such a simple question, but I’m having trouble getting the answer. Is it possible to have a blog at WordPress.com and not have the WordPress.com banner (shown below)? Is it simply a matter of purchasing the “master of your domain” premium feature? Or must I host my own WordPress.org installation (which is not […]

How to get a retweet button on my wordpress.com blog?

Is is possible to get a retweet button on a WordPress.com blog? I see that plugins are not an option, and the only widget that I found was for adding my tweets to my blog. I’m looking to add my blog to other peoples tweets, and I’m surprised that isn’t built in, like the FaceBook […]

I recently published a podcast hosted on WordPress.com on iTunes and it says “Podcasts by Unknown”. It seems like it is missing the author tag. My question is that how can I add the author tag to the RSS since I used the RSS widget to expose my RSS?
