You’ve monetized your app with Admob, but your ads aren’t showing when you test your game.
Here are some common causes and how to fix them:
- Make sure you have updated AdMob with your payment details
- Make sure that the ads you created in AdMob are banner ads.
- Check your AdMob dashboard to see the status of your ads, are they active?
- Verify you used the correct Ad Unit Id.
- Give it 24 hours, it can take time for an ad to become active in your region
Also keep in mind:
1. It’s too early for the ads to fill.
English speaking regions tend to get a faster fill-rate as there are more advertisers targeting these markets. The smaller the market, the slower the fill-rate. Wait 48 hours and see if the issue resolves.
2. Your region has a slower fill-rate.
You notice you’re making income, but when you test the game yourself you can’t see any ads in your game. The region you are testing from may have a slower fill-rate, but advertising is active in the other regions you released for. Wait 48 hours and your region should be updated with active ads.
3. You haven’t entered your payment details.
We have received reports from users, particularly using AdMob, that their banners haven’t filled with active ads until they have entered their payment details into the AdMob account. Update your AdMob account with your payment details and see if the issue resolves in 24 hours.
4. You’ve waited a few days, and have done all the above but the issue hasn’t resolved.
