AdMob - How to continue?

Postby soor » Thu Jan 20, 2011 11:03 am

Greetings,

I have made my first app with AdMob. When I am running it in the emulator, I get the AdMob test Ad.
But now I am not sure, how to continue.

In the java file, I have:

AdManager.setTestDevices(new String[] {
AdManager.TEST_EMULATOR} );

I have to delite this, when I want that the Ads are displayed on the phone, right.?

For the test, I have deleted this part of the code, and installed the app on the phone. But I dont get Ads.

Can someone help me with finishing this App, that when I upload the App to the market, everithing will be O.K.?

Thanx and have a nice day.

UPDATE:

I still get no Ads, but in my profile on AdMob, requests for Ads are counted.

yes, upload it to the market, give it a 1-2days and check again. You should get ad's.

You can see the request for ad's in the log, this proves you are getting them, an itll say something like "no fill" so request but none have come to your phone :-)

Thanx for these.
One more question...

In the manifest, I have <meta-data android:value="true" android:name="ADMOB_ALLOW_LOCATION_FOR_ADS" /> set to true. Is this o.k., or would it be better set to false.
Now the user gets Ads for his country, set to false, he gets worlwide Ads, right?
What hapens when it's set to true, but there are no Ads for the country - no Ads, no money?

I believe it uses the location as a sub division category, so if it knows your the in UK it will send you UK ads, however if it knows your in the UK and it has 0 UK ads it will send you worldwide ad's.
