What are they?

Ads are very common and very good source of income for mobile app developers. Google Ad Mob, is a mobile app advertising platform designed especially for app developers which helps them monetize their mobile apps by showing ads in their mobile apps. It can be used for Android and iOS users.

How does it work?

Google Admob is the most recognized one among all but other than that, there are some other admobs which also have quite many features like Google Admob. Before getting into the details of Google Admob, let’s have a look at some of the other admobs  out there.

  • Airpush

  • InMobi

  • LeadBolt

  • MobFox Publisher Platform

  • Unity Ads


Sounds similar, Adwords & Admobs?

These two words my sound almost similar, but they are not at all same. With the Adwords, one can create app install campaigns that display to users on apps within the AdMob network. Once, such apps are installed, it can be linked with the Admob to show ads in the app and monetize users.

Flexible ad sizes are available which change when the user rotates the screen. Interstitials appear at natural breaks or transition points without hindering the flow of the app.

  • Powerful Analytics

It offers ad request level revenue data directly in Google Analytics to Firebase (Firebase is a mobile and web application development platform developed by Firebase Inc. and was acquired by Google later) which helps in making better decisions for the app. Linking the Firebase account to Google Analytics would help to get better insights and better report analysis.

Ad Mediation: An Outstanding Factor

Ad mediation is an app monetization solution that generates revenue by providing the necessary help to developers to setup, manage, and optimize multiple mobile ad networks with just one Software Development Kit (SDK)integration. These SDKs equip app developers so that they can build any kind of mobile app for smartphones or tablets to publish in the Google Play Store or App Store Marketplace. Working and managing with such number of sources of ads helps creating competition for the ads and in turn boosts revenue. 


Some of the best reasons to use Admob’s Mediation Platform are-

  1. Easily enabled with few lines of codes.

  2. Admob’s network optimization maximizes revenue

  3. Each ad unit has a preferred list of sources, so, when one source becomes unavailable, the next source on the list is called, to ensure maximum impression. This is called a waterfall setup.
