Ezoic is one of the best ad networks and a great platform to improve ad revenue for publishers. However, just like other networks, Ezoic also has minimum requirements to join the platform but the rules and requirements aren’t as strict as the others.
In fact, Ezoic recently revamped the minimum requirements to help small publishers to join the platform and increase their earnings.
In this article, we will go over the minimum Ezoic requirements to join the platform and what exactly is Ezoic, as well as whether or not the platform really helps you increase your earnings.
Below are the Ezoic requirements (At a glance) to join the platform. If you want to know in detail, keep reading the article.
- There is no minimum traffic requirement to join Ezoic.
- The site should only contain original content.
- The site should comply with Adsense policy.
- The site should be in Adsense-supported language.
- The site should not be an eCommerce site.
That’s it. These are the basic requirements to join Ezoic. Now, let’s get into the detail
What Is Ezoic?
Ezoic is an AI platform that intelligently tests different ads on a site, picking the best ad to increase CTR and CPM.
Ezoic works with a lot of ad networks to display high-quality ads with high CPM. Google Adsense is also one among them, meaning that Ezoic will work flawlessly with Google Adsense to provide the publisher with the best ads to display.
At a glance, Ezoic automates all the tasks required to increase potential earnings, and it’s completely free.
let’s look at the Ezoic requirements to be eligible to get approved.
As I said before, Ezoic doesn’t have any strict policies or requirements to be eligible to join but below are the few requirements that your site must meet to get into the platform.
However, a few features such as the Ezoic leap don’t need any requirements to use them.
1. No Minimum Traffic
A few months ago, Ezoic does have a minimum traffic requirement of 10,000 visits per month to be eligible to join but later on, Ezoic removed that limitation to help the small publishers.
So now, the Ezoic doesn’t have any minimum traffic requirement to join, meaning sites with literally 0 visits can join Ezoic.
2. Original content
The site must be original and contain no duplicate or plagiarized content. If a site has been copied, then it will be straight away rejected. This is the most important thing that you should consider while applying.
3. Adsense Policy
The site should comply with Adsense policy. The site must comply with all policies set by the Adsense team and follow Google’s guidelines.
4. Adsense supported language
The site’s content should be written in a language that is supported by Adsense. You can find all the languages that are being accepted on the Google official publisher-supported language page.
5. E-commerce site is not supported
An eCommerce site is not supported by Ezoic. However, as per Ezoic, eCommerce sites that contain blogs as an additional section can be considered and may be approved.
6. Adsense Account is recommended but required
Though it is not necessarily a requirement, it is recommended to have an approved Google Adsense account with good standing. This helps to maximize your potential earnings with mediation (A feature that lets you connect your Ezoic account with Google Adsense).
Ezoic Levels is a leveling system that unlocks more features and options when a site reaches a certain level. The levels can be achieved by traffic and monthly revenue. There are a total of 6 levels to achieve, starting with access now and ending with VIP. Similar to the Ezoic requirements for minimization, Ezoic levels also consist of minimum requirements to upgrade the level.
Ezoic requirements and levels
Ezoic Access now – No requirements. It is the basic level that unlocks when signed up with Ezoic.
Level 1 – More than 10,000 visits per month and $50 revenue per month
Level 2 – 20,000 to 30,000 visits per month and $200 to $300 revenue per month
Level 3 – 50,000 to 75,000 visits per month and $500 to $750 revenue per month
level 4 – 250,000 to 500,000 visits per month and $2,500 to $5,000 revenue per month
VIP – More than 500,000 visits per month and more than $10,000 in revenue per month. VIP is very limited and not everyone who meets the requirements can’t be joined.
Each level unlocks different abilities and ad partners. For instance, sites that reach level 2 will be served with A+ ad partners (that’s what they call it as), followed by level 3 which unlocks A++ ad partners. Apart from ad partners, there are few abilities, and advanced support is provided at the higher levels. Each of them can be viewed from Ezoic’s official site regarding levels.
How to join Ezoic and integrate your site?
Joining Ezoic is very simple and easy to do. Just follow the below steps and you will be good to go.
- Head over to the Ezoic site and click “get started” at the top right.
- Depending on your site traffic, choose the desired option. If your site contains less than 10,000 visits per month, go for the Ezoic Access Now and if your site contains more than 10,000 visits, go for the normal account.
- On the next page, enter your email and domain URL on the following page.
- You will be asked to tick a few things that you like to improve with Ezoic. Tick your desired options and finally click “continue” and “get started”.
- Finally, you will be taken to the dashboard. On the dashboard, click “Home” on the top menu and finish setting up your account by providing your first name and password.
- Now, it’s time to integrate your site with Ezoic. There are two methods to do it. One is to integrate with Ezoic’s own nameservers and the other is with Cloudflare. Choose your desired method and integrate your site. I would recommend going with Cloudflare.
Once integrated, the Ezoic team will check your site and get back to you with the result. If it meets all the Ezoic requirements, then your site will be approved and ready to serve ads.
Ezoic Leap doesn’t need any requirements
Ezoic has a lot of features and one of them is Ezoic Leap. It is essentially a set of tools that optimize your site to increase its speed. They basically make your site pass the Google core web vitals (as per Ezoic claims) which is essentially required to rank better on Google.
This feature doesn’t have minimum Ezoic requirements to use them. When you sign in and integrate your site, you can straight away use the feature. Whether your site is approved or declined doesn’t matter.
The tool is completely free for Ezoic monetized users but requires a paid subscription if the site is declined or does not show ads through Ezoic.
Does Ezoic really work?
The short answer is yes, the Ezoic definitely works. Revenue Per Mile (RPM) on Ezoic can be as great as $20 (even higher in some cases) and this is greatly huge when compared to Adsense. Just signing up with Ezoic and integrating your site won’t cost you anything other than a few seconds time to work with the process.
Once integrated, you can even control how many ads you want to serve through Ezoic on respective devices such as desktop or mobile. This comes in handy to control the ad flow across various devices.
If you don’t want ads to serve through Ezoic, you can just turn it off with a flip of a switch and turn it back on if you want to.
These are the minimum Ezoic requirements needed to join the platform. Ezoic is one of the ad networks that doesn’t have any minimum traffic requirements, and it’s one of the best platforms for publishers to improve ad revenue. Other similar platforms including Mediavine and Adthrive have a large amount of traffic requirement to be accepted into their program. For new publishers, this can be a daunting goal to achieve.
So consider joining Ezoic if you would like to improve your earnings.
