    Hi Steve!
    This is a really incredible post! We love hearing success stories from our publishers, and we are so honored to be a part of yours.
    As publishers ourselves, we totally agree that ads aren’t our favorite. That’s why we do everything in our power to make them hurt less. With ads, it’s definitely all about finding that balance between user experience and income.
    Regarding site speed, that’s something that’s so dear to our hearts, especially because of speed’s role in SEO. What’s important to keep in mind is that some of the tools you mentioned give a speed score of an entire page, from top to bottom. A reader will take in your site a little bit at a time, so those scores don’t accurately represent how users are reading your content.
    At Mediavine, we only load two ads on page load, and lazy load the rest, so they don’t exist until a reader reaches them. We recommend Google Page Speed Insights for testing speed because it focuses on the first screenview, and then ads would load as a reader gets closer to them.
    Thank you so much, Steve, for sharing your Mediavine earnings in your first income report and congratulations on your amazing growth! We are really excited for a great Q4, and are so glad you are here with us!

      Thanks for the clarification Susannah! I just now ran the site through Page Speed Insights and saw no change in score with ads on vs ads off. In Google’s eyes, ads have zero impact on my site at all. Great news!

      I will make a few adjustments to my post and update it accordingly.
