However, Ezoic’s Knowledge Base has an abundance of articles that have been proven to answer most questions instantly.

Do I need an AdSense account to use Ezoic?
No.

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?

Yes.

While Ezoic’s SiteSpeed+ features are paid, the Site Speed Accelerator has speed features that are free for all sites.

You’ll learn how to activate site speed tools during the speed certification course.

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.
