Over the past 12 or so months I've struggled to overcome stagnant growth in traffic and revenue that was brought on in part by Google updates. My rankings have not changed much (except for my top two articles) but my presence in the SERPs has been negatively affected, primarily because of changes in how Google displays SERP results on page 1.
In July I will have been with Ezoic for two years and still have not made it out of Access Now. I've had two Premium site reviews and a few conversations with Ezoic publisher people. I've added tens of thousands of words of original content, all personally written word by word and optimized for SEO.
My site was very fast when I first joined Ezoic, but I've changed themes twice since then, trying to accommodate the heavy code that is added for ads.
I've added a few videos and had more than enough difficulty getting them to display properly on my site. I'm in the process of improving my social media presence. Those two things will probably pay off, but not in the short term.
That leaves me looking for more answers for how to get out of Access Now and move on to at least Level One.
I found this quote on https://levels.ezoic.com/faq/:
How are visits and revenue calculated?
Ezoic uses the previous month’s total visits and total revenue from all the sites active within a publisher’s Ezoic account.
With all of the changes that Ezoic has recently made, such as the recent changes in support that removed ticket access for some publishers such as myself who previously appreciated that feature, I wonder, is the above quote is still accurate?
I have two more websites. One is totally new. The other is one that I'm resurrecting. I believe both sites' niches are less competitive than the one my primary site is in.
The quote I gave above makes me think that if I can get the two new sites going to the point that they contain enough content to gain traffic and are accepted by Adsense and Ezoic, perhaps they can give my original site the boost that would put them all in Level One.
Am I looking at this right? Or does the primary site on my account have to meet the Level One requirements by itself?
