Beta Onboarding Process
Must earn certification before February 10, 2021
Thank you for letting us know you’re ready to get started monetizing your site with Ezoic! You will receive an email with your login credentials shortly.
Ezoic believes all sites, regardless of size, should have access to the same resources that major brand publishers are using. Beyond that, publishers shouldn’t have to rely on 3rd parties to succeed in the digital publishing space. That’s why Ezoic is testing this new onboarding process—so publishers are able to join Ezoic without pageview limitations*.
Built to empower with education, our team requires publishers to complete a curriculum and earn certification. You’ll have two attempts to earn your certification (75% or higher). Once certified, sites have everything they need to set up with Ezoic, begin monetizing, and troubleshoot (if needed) on their own—no waiting.
*Basic ad policy guidelines must be met. To help prevent thin content ad privacy violations, Ezoic generally recommends either 1,000 sessions or 3,000 pageviews per month.
Twist Channels for to Each Stage of Onboarding
You’ll be invited to channels depending on where you’re at in the onboarding process. You’ll be accompanied by Ezoic team members and fellow publishers.
These communities will help foster working together to solve problems, prioritizes open communication, and gives individuals many opportunities to both learn from and teach others.
Excellent problem-solving skills and intro for beginners getting involved with Ezoic.
Asked by Ezoic Beta members
How do I get started monetizing with Ezoic?
We’ve tried to make it as easy as possible to begin monetizing your site with the most sophisticated ad operations, premium ad networks, and modern testing platform available. Sites must comply with basic policy guidelines and be certified to access Ezoic’s monetization features.
The application form on this page is the only way to begin using Ezoic with no pageview limitations.
Sites will need to complete these steps to access Ezoic Monetization features…
- Learn about integration with Ezoic
- Integrate your site via name servers or Cloudflare (rec. methods)
- Take the Ezoic course available in your dashboard
- Successfully complete the Ezoic certification test (75%+
- Complete setup steps from Ezoic’s course
- Turn on Ezoic and begin monetization
Will my site need to be "approved" or reviewed?
All sites must meet ad policy guidelines, and Ezoic will have team members review sites for compliance.
Once you integrate with Ezoic, our quality team will ensure your site meets these guidelines (which can take up to 7 days) as you complete the Ezoic courses and certification process. After this is completed, your site should be ready to begin using Ezoic Monetization.
As a part of the setup process, sites will have a short period of time they will have to wait for integration (less than 24 hrs for name servers to propagate) and Google Ad Exchange to add their site to Ezoic (within 48 hrs typically).
After setting up my site, where should I go with questions?
Ezoic’s Knowledge Base has an abundance of articles that have been proven to answer most questions instantly.
However, our team encourages you to primarily use the collaborative learning communities—Slack channels—to ask questions! This is the fastest way to get answers.
Do I need an AdSense account to use Ezoic?
Ezoic does not require that sites have an AdSense account to use Ezoic. If you have an existing AdSense account, you can link it to Ezoic to ensure the best results. You can even split-test Ezoic and AdSense once it is linked to Ezoic.
Can I improve my site's speed with Ezoic?
While Ezoic’s SiteSpeed+ features are paid, the Site Speed Accelerator has free speed features that are free for all sites.
You’ll learn how to activate site speed tools during the certification courses.
What if I don't want ads in certain locations on my site?
That’s what makes Ezoic perfect for all sites, you have total control over ad locations and Ezoic will even test and improve ad density and location on a per visitor basis to ensure UX isn’t disrupted while still maximizing revenue.
In the Ezoic certification course, you’ll learn how to easily drag and drop ad placeholders in different page locations to customize how you’d like to optimize your site.
It’s important to remember that a placeholder is a potential ad location, and ads won’t always appear in that place. Ezoic was built so that all sites could simultaneously test and optimize ads on their site for each visitor. Generally, this means trying not to artificially limit ad locations based on personal preference, but Ezoic makes it easy to choose what works for your site.
Will I get a special "rep" or Ezoic team member to help me?
Sites should be cautious about reliance on 3rd parties for help with ad monetization. This is why Ezoic designed this program so that sites could become Certified Ezoic users and setup sites themselves.
Support and assistance can be accessed by creating tickets at support.ezoic.com. Specific team members may make themselves available for additional questions should they determine that would be best for your needs.
