1. 50,000 Sessions in Past 30 Days
Mediavine requires that your website have received 50,000 sessions in the past 30 days, as measured by Google Analytics.
This traffic requirement is probably the biggest barrier of entry for most bloggers. While not an impossibly high minimum, 50,000 sessions typically means that your site is receiving substantial traffic, and for most bloggers requires a substantial investment of time in producing high quality content.
Mediavine requires 50K sessions, not pageviews. Many other ad networks use pageviews as their baseline metric, so some bloggers miss this key detail.
A session is, a single visit to your website.
Whether a user lands on one of your web pages and leaves a few seconds later, or spends an hour reading every blog post on your site, it still counts as a single session.
A pageview indicates the total number of times a user visits a webpage.
So pageviews are some number that is larger than your sessions. The ratio of pageviews to sessions will vary depending upon how users engage with your website (but as a rough guideline, 50K sessions typically translates to 60K-80K page views).
Mediavine measures your site’s metrics using data from Google Analytics.
For most bloggers, this is pretty simple to check as they already use Google Analytics. But for those bloggers using another tool to track website traffic, you should keep in mind that you need 50K sessions as reported by Google Analytics.
If you don’t have Google Analytics installed, you will need to wait at least another month to apply, since you need the full 30 days data from this tool.
Checking this metric in Google Analytics is easy.
