I've integrated AdMob in my android app. I've always tested with the test ads on my device. But before uploading my app on Google Play Store I tried to see real ads on my real device, but it didn't show me any ads. After a few hours my account was disabled and sent me the following email

Thank you for your interest in AdMob. After reviewing your application, our specialists have found that it does not meet our program criteria. Therefore, we are unable to accept you into our program.

We have certain policies in place that we believe will help ensure the effectiveness of Google ads for our publishers as well as for our advertisers. We review all publishers, and we reserve the right to decline any application. As we grow, we may find that we are able to expand our program to more publishers with a wider variety of content. Please note that we may not be able to respond to inquiries regarding the specific reasons for our decision. Thank you for your understanding.

I can't understand what I have done wrong. After some searching, I've found that it's not mandatory to upload the app in Google Playstore for showing ads. I tried to show ads in a real device which is similar to my published app. So I've created a new one. I've gone through the privacy policy of admob and didn't found anything specific related to my problem. So can anyone please tell me When should I request my first real ad? why my account is disabled? Can I use same address as my previous one in my new account?

Answer 1

As far as you add .addTestDevice(Your device test ad id) to AdRequestBuilder

for example "AdRequest.Builder().addTestDevice("FB9F1C3D53382E1666489F5407301E91") .addTestDevice("CDD86067AF6113E56BF2B62A2D28F5DB").build()"

you can request real ads anytime you want. You should see Test Ad attribituon on your ads. Another way you can use Google Test Ad Unit id's until your app published. Even if it is published, you should use test ads on your device.
