Ezoic for Passive Income Geek

Self-Serve Onboarding

Ezoic worked closely with founder Morten Storgaard, to create an onboarding process that allows Passive Income Geek members to use Ezoic without pageview limitations as long as basic ad policy guidelines are met. To help prevent thin content ad privacy violations and other challenges developing sites may experience, Ezoic and Passive Income Geek generally recommend sites reach either 1,000 sessions or 3,000 pageviews per month before attempting to monetize a site.

How it works: Upon signup, you’ll receive an email with access to your Ezoic dashboard. The first step will be to learn about and complete integration. This is how Ezoic will check that your site meets policy guidelines—which can take up to 7 days. Once integrated, you’re free to begin completing our certification process. 

Ezoic has been a great technology partner and is an industry leader for a reason.

Common Questions

Asked by Passive Income Geek 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 be members of Passive Income Geek to take advantage of this Ezoic program.

To ensure every site’s success, we ask all Passive Income Geek sites to use the application form above to begin using Ezoic. We recommend sites have at least 1,000 visits per month prior to completing this step. Furthermore, since there are no pageview requirements, we ask sites to review basic policy guidelines to ensure their site is eligible.

Next, sites will need to complete these steps to access Ezoic Monetization features…

  1. Take the Ezoic course available only on Ezoic
  2. Successfully complete the Ezoic certification test
  3. Integrate your site(s) with Ezoic via name servers (rec. method for Passive Income Geek members)
  4. Complete setup steps from Ezoic’s course
  5. Turn on Ezoic and begin monetization
  6. (OPTIONAL) Request Ezoic staff to review your site configuration

 

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, but there is no approval process required for Project 24 sites.

Once you integrate, our quality team will ensure your site meets these guidelines (which can take up to 7 days) as you complete the Ezoic course 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?

Members are encouraged to use the community within Passive Income Geek—We have Ezoic experts there to field questions.

While Ezoic’s Knowledge Base has been proven to answer most questions instantly, members can create tickets at support.ezoic.com should technical help be needed*.

*Response times are between 1-3 days.

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.

Are Ezoic's site speed accelerator+ features free for project 24 Members?

Yes.

The Site Speed Accelerator is free for all sites, but Ezoic’s Speed+ features will be available to all Passive Income Geek members after they complete the Ezoic Certification and integrate their site with Ezoic.

Here is a video walkthrough of how to activate the tool. 

In your Ezoic dashboard under the Speed icon, hit the ‘Turn On’ button next to Site Speed Accelerator. You can use the toggles to turn on Mobile, Desktop, and Tablet, or whichever of the three you want to improve speed.

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 Passive Income Geek sites could become Certified Ezoic users and setup sites themselves.
