I noticed there wasn’t much information out there on using Ezoic with wordpress.com so I wanted to share my experience.
Can you use Ezoic on WordPress.com?
Yes, you can definitely use Ezoic with wordpress.com. It was a little more difficult to set up, but if I can make it work anyone can.
I had to go back and forth between wordpress.com and Ezoic help, but it wasn’t that hard. I got an error trying to download the Ezoic app, but wordpress.com fixed the issue. I think it had something to do with how the domain was set up and IP addresses.
So, if you are considering going to Ezoic you are probably looking to make more $$$. And I can say you definitely should. Compared to wordads I’m making about 10X more per day. I’m very happy with this.
This has been my issue so far. My blog never did super good on the speed testers before, but now it’s been worse. While it doesn’t score well, I don’t really notice it being slow in actual use. Ezoic gives recommendations to speed it up that I am trying now. Some of the suggestions I can’t do because they are necessary on WordPress.com. I’ll report back if I speed up. If you are reading this, I guess you can judge the speed yourself.
The one thing you will have to do is be on a business plan. You need this to be able to get the Ezoic plugin. It’s not cheap at $25/month, but I’m making more than the upgrade cost. I would suggest you get approved on Ezoic before spending the money to upgrade your plan.
Number of ads per page
Ezoic definitely runs a lot of ads on every page. But if you want, you can limit the number on a page. I assume this will affect how much you are making, however. I will likely set a limit in the future on my pages.
Like button not working
I think after I enabled Leap my Jetpack like button stopped working on my posts. Ezoic made an adjustment and fixed the issue.
