Website optimization platform Ezoic launches after helping small publishers boost ad income by 730% -- - Automatically tested and optimized over 1bn pages in one year of beta activity - Increased mobile ad revenue for small sites by almost 1,000% - Huge increases in visitor numbers to 21 million combined per month
San Diego, CA, July 23, 2014 -- Ezoic is celebrating its launch after a year of closed beta activity in which 1,000+ small publishers signed up to have their website layout improved, resulting in an average ad revenue increase of 730%.
“We solve a problem that many small publishers don’t even know they have,” said John Cole, Ezoic’s Chief Customer Officer. “They’re missing out on millions of dollars each month in lost ad revenue, as well as unnecessary bounced or frustrated visitors, all because their website layout isn’t efficient.”
Ezoic’s ‘optimization’ technology automatically creates and tests multiple versions of the same website to improve the visitor experience and ad income.
Cole explained: “Leading eCommerce sites such as Amazon have been endlessly testing and optimizing their sites for years to get users to buy more online, however, this technology hasn’t really filtered through to publishers of content sites, who should be working on usability. Either they just don’t know about it, or they don’t have the time, money or technical expertise. We handle all this technical ‘heavy lifting’ so they can focus on what they do best -- creating great original content.”
In the year of testing, Ezoic optimized over 1 billion pages, helping traffic increase to 21 million visitors a month across sites using the technology. Sites’ ad revenue increased by an average 730% across all screens, mobile ad revenue alone increased 960%.
“We give ordinary people the freedom to earn a living through a subject they’re passionate about; their site is often their main source of income and Ezoic technology can increase it almost eightfold. It’s life changing money,” said Cole.
