Ezoic ad Monetization: Blog Income Report

A few months ago, I joined Ezoic and started running ads a month or so ago.

And guess how much I made! Drum rolls...

I made 1 dollar in August using Ezoic, haha. 

Ok, listen, guys, I joined Ezoic sometime in July to try and monetize my blog with ads, and so far, so good—but not in terms of revenue. 

And that is okay because I’m in the learning stage and still wrapping my head around the tech part of ad monetization.  

I’m writing this post for my accountability and to help me achieve the goals I’ve set for this blog. 

My goal is to hit $1k in ad revenue per month in the next year with Ezoic ad monetization.  

When I created this blog two years ago, I wanted to share my journey as a freelance writer and blogger—and that is still the focus of this blog.  

However, I haven’t been putting as much effort as I should because I create content for my awesome clients most of the time.   

Allow me to share my plans for this project from now on.

First, I need to give you guys an update on Ezoic.

How is Ezoic monetization?

I’ve had a great experience running ads on my blog with Ezoic so far.

Ezoic offers resourceful ad monetization courses which are free of charge. 

Plus, you don’t need a certain amount of traffic to qualify for Ezoic monetization.

You can apply for Ezoic even with a brand new blog.  

Also, applying for Ezoic helped me create my Adsense account and the ad manager account, which took a shorter time to be approved.   

How long does it take to be approved by Ezoic?

My onboarding process with Ezoic took around two weeks.

The first stage involves the website review by the Ezoic team.

They check to ensure that the site has quality original content and gets legit website traffic.  

The second stage is where you enroll in their free courses.

And these courses are super detailed and informative. 

You will learn all the details on ad monetization with Ezoic.

Once you pass the test, you will be eligible to start monetizing your blog.   

The Ezoic monetization is relatively seamless, and you can do it within a short period. 

The ad placeholder plugin on Chrome makes it easy for you to create placeholders, so you don’t have to use codes.  

If you need to try Ezoic, you can sign up right here.  

What do I love about Ezoic monetization?

Ezoic offers so much for a novice blogger who is setting foot into ad monetization.

I’ve read so many great Ezoic reviews, and I’m sure that I will earn a decent income with Ezoic monetization once I streamline this blog.  

Also, running ads through Ezoic is easy, and you can optimize the ads so that they don’t affect user experience.

Another thing is the excellent Ezoic’s Big Data Analytics.

This helps you understand how traffic is performing on your site, where you make the little and the most money, and much more. 

Plans to boost my Ezoic earnings in the coming months.

#1→Boost blog traffic.

When I signed up for Ezoic, my blog traffic was so tiny.

I had around 500 monthly views.

With that size of traffic, you can’t expect to earn much.

So my priority is to boost my blog traffic, and I hope you guys tag along as we learn about freelance writing and grow together.

I’ll be using two main strategies to grow my blog traffic.

And that is organic blog traffic and Pinterest traffic. 

Here are the current stats on my Google Analytics and Pinterest.

Google analytics Pinterest analytics My target is to get 1000 daily organic Google traffic and Pinterest traffic.  

#2→Create more content

Another crucial factor that will dramatically boost my ad revenue is content.

Currently, my blog has 31 blog posts which are way too little for a blog that is two years old.

I plan to add 100 more blog posts in the next six months.

Fingers crossed, and I hope to achieve this because creating content is quite some work.

This is even harder when you freelance for other businesses.

I will find a way to make this work, including outsourcing to other writers.

So if you are a freelance writer, keep an eye on my blog for updates when I need to hire a freelance content writer.   

#3→Be consistent with content writing.

Another plan I have right now is to create content consistently and treat my blog as a client’s blog.

I’ll be sharing more freelance writing and blogging content, so keep an eye on my blog for actionable content for freelance writers.   

#4→Focus on SEO. 

SEO is such an essential factor for blog growth and revenue. 

My blog posts currently rank on the first page of Google.

However, I need to add more content and optimize on-page and off-page SEO. 

Once all these are set, I will be washing, rinsing, and repeating.  

#4→Boost Ezoic ad revenue.

I’m glad to have incredible and reliable freelance writing jobs that keep me afloat as I work on this blog’s goals.

    Hi Charity,

    I started blogging in 2020 and my first blog begun having some decent traffic a year later. Sometime in 2021, I joined Ezoic but had some issues and left the network (my hosting provider wasn’t compatible with Ezoic).

    Towards the end of 2021, I started a self-branded blog similar to yours where I also guide new bloggers and share my blogging journey with them.

    I haven’t written much but I’m slowly growing my traffic. I started monetizing with Adsense but a few days ago, I made a decision to take down all my ads and work towards getting enough traffic for premium networks like Mediavine.

    On the other hand, I hate using display ads and I’m currently working learning more on how to maximize my potential in affiliates. The goal is to be 100 percent ad-free in the next five years.

    Anyway, great job and keep doing what you’re doing. I’ve found most of your posts quite insightful. Looking forward to more posts.


    PS: Great to see a fellow Kenyan doing what I’m also doing.

    Hi Brian,
    Thank you for stopping by on my blog and leaving this thoughtful comment.
    I understand how ad display can be a challenge.
    Sometimes I can’t access my blog dashboard because of my blog host and Ezoic “conflict,” haha.
    I also plan to try other blog monetization strategies, so I’ll keep an eye on your blog to see your progress and learn from you.
    Happy New Year!

    Hello Charity,

    I am happy to come across your blog. Its has been a month and a half since I also joined Ezoic.

    My website is wee bit older than yours and a bit more traffic but we are on the same journey. As yourself i am far from happy with the performance of my website and need to do more to improve traffic and hopefully with that comes increase earnings.

    I know very little about the display ads terminology and still to learn the Ezoic platform functionalities and how to use all the courses to help in building performance, traffic and revenue of my current site and future ones.

    This is the first of your blogs I have come across, I will take a tour of your site. I started writing on medium.com which lead to me promoting my website on there by building back links.

    I have just created a video on this and will also be using that YouTube channel to track and share my Ezoic experience with display ads earnings.

    I look forward to reading from you and sharing your journey towards our similar goals.

    Stay blessed always.
