Nice and good earnings with Ezoic! I've contacted them again and I'll do a split traffic test to see which one pays better for my niche, Monumetric or EzoicStill plan to provide a larger update on a monthly basis but happy to provide some details on the month thus far. Currently between 300-500 organic searches a day which makes between $6-12/day with Ezoic.
Certainly receiving more traffic across different articles but most articles top out between 10-15 views a day. Looks like a ton of articles have yet to bring in traffic (mostly the new informational articles).
I have been holding off on outsourcing content - currently at 453 articles. The other day I actually wrote an article (~1000 words) after watching a motivating video on Youtube about ranking new content.
My niche does have an element of seasonality to it but I tried to hedge that risk by writing some "off-season" articles that satisfy popular searches during those months. One would think that the holidays will always provide an extra boast to the amazon affiliate product review articles.
Over the last week I have actually questioned the idea of a sandbox and which challenges everything that I have followed. I assume that this thought process is natural given the uncertainty of articles ranking. Hopefully, I am in that weird period before traffic soars. Certainly proud of the site thus far but not ready to celebrate just yet.
I used to show their ads on my website when I was driving traffic from social media, but now that I finally have organic traffic, I guess my earnings will be much better than before. I'm at 700-800 daily visitors right now. I think that I should be getting at least 10$ per day now. Hopefully, with Ezoic I will.Earnings are better than expected with Ezoic - receiving EMPV between $13-19 as of late.

Did your website slow down when you started using Ezoic?
Probably the most inspiring journey for me in BHW, especially for many who are starting from scratch. I have just started on a similar journey and have gathered the budget to go from one step to another.
Somethings I can conclude from your journey:
- Be optimistic as long as you know what you are doing.
- Quality content matters even when it costs higher $$.
- Long term perspective is very important for such a Journey.
Would you also be able to sum up what all you felt you could have done differently or what you felt was mistakes in your journey?
Those are really solid traffic numbers considering the age of the site.
I hope you overshoot your target once your site matures a bit and Google starts picking up your content more and more.
I'm using Ezoic as well but it really slows down the site, especially on mobile. Would you mind sharing what score you get on page speed insights? (Mine range from 10-20)
I get a little worried about any page speed affects on rankings. But I'm currently averaging around $30 EPMV so it's hard to make the switch.
