Testing ad sizes and positions is a super simple way to increase your ad revenue. Publishers who use Ezoic’s technology see increases in ad income of 50-250%. This is because Ezoic’s system is able to find the ad combinations that work best for your site based on how your users interact with the site.
You should test as many ad positions, types, sizes and formats as possible. Each variable can have an impact on revenue. But it’s hard to test lots of different ad combinations manually; it takes a bunch of time and sucks up lots of resources that could be used elsewhere - like creating content, working on a social media strategy or even an email campaign - you get my point! So using an automatic system will let you test way more permutations (think thousands!) than you could on your own - and the system will do a better job of collating and analyzing the results for you.
The system also measures and reports user experience metrics, so it allows you to monitor the impact of your tests on user experience. So while you are making more money, you can make sure you are not negatively affecting your user experience metrics - you may even find they improve. Well placed ads are known to be a positive factor in creating a good user experience.
Ezoic Ad Tester brings something extra other than just testing ads. Once the system ‘learns’ your traffic, it will dynamically adapt the position and types of ads it shows on any given page to suit the traffic - e.g. social traffic monetizes differently from say, search traffic - and also to the device the visitor is browsing on. This means you will make the most money while changing the ads for each visitor, depending on how they arrived at your site, and the device they are using. This is unique to Ezoic and adds a really valuable dimension to your testing.
