The impact of Ezoic on a website's organic search traffic

Ezoic is a Google award-winning artificial intelligence platform that allows users to automatically optimize ads, configure content, and leverage ad mediation to increase ad earnings and improve user experiences on their website.

One of the unique attributes of the Ezoic artificial intelligence platform is its ability to optimize towards user experience metrics like bounce rate, session duration, and pageviews per visit. These play a critical role in website monetization and overall on-site user experiences; however, they also happen to be some of the most critical factors for search engine optimization (SEO) ​as well.

In the study below, we examined the relationship between websites using the Ezoic platform and their corresponding improvements in organic search traffic, organic keyword rankings, avg. bounce rate, avg. session duration, and avg. pageviews per visit.

While SEO improvements are not an outwardly marketed quality of the Ezoic system, this information provides a clear picture of the value that the Ezoic system can bring to this dimension of a website’s growth practices. In all of these cases, Ezoic’s website optimizations perfectly mirror search ranking and search traffic improvements on all of these websites.


The impact of Ezoic on SimplyPsychology.org's organic search results

● Increased keywords that rank in Google by 600%

These positive improvements correlate directly with optimizations that were the result of Ezoic’s testing.

After the first few months of testing, the ultimate improvements in pageviews
and pageviews per visit correlated directly with the increases in organic traffic.
Furthermore, in this timespan Ezoic was able to drop bounce rate by 20% and increase session duration by approximately 120%​ resulting in a +793,000 increase in organic keywords that the website ranked for in search engines.
