    Hi,

    Since the last versions, i have been noticing that ads doesn't appear to be working in any app.
    This is not a isolated issue, as there are many reports from other users around this forum.

    The issue also doesn't appears to be related with a specific app or location. Despite the GDRP, the ads doesn't appear in any country - and the admob settings in AppYet dashboard are fine.
    Also, the Admob test ads units doesn't work.

    Checking the Android Log for the apllications, this is a issue with the implementation of Admob in the apps, and no one beside @appyet can fix it.
    I think it should be checked. I mean, AppYet is mostly dead at this point, but there is a HUGE lost in revenue for @appyet because of this ongoing issue.

    I think is time someone start looking at this service. The negligent of AppYet in fix the issues are a huge blown to the service. AndroidAuthoraty, one of the most used apps from this service, already left the plataform because of this.

    God, not even the website is in HTTPS, a MUST HAVE in the current internet.

    I'm sad to see how AppYet was and what he become. No support, not even a reply from the author/admin. No way for the creators gain control of the apps, nothing.

    If you are new in the AppYet plataform, just look for other service or build your own android app - there are templates for Android Studio that help a lot, even novice users.
    For the rest of us, that have been using App Yet, we are caged. But i still have faith that @appyet itself will take care of the issues or dictate the end of the service at last.

    Sorry about this rant, but it comes the time to put this in place...

    For what i can see, the problem appears to be in the Admob integration in the apps build by your system.
    No matter what, is used the Flurry agent, despite being stated the Admob in the Settings. Or at least is what appears to be happening, acording to the logs...

    This is the error that i get when using the "Admob" setting in your website, with all the setting correctly applied:

    2019-04-18 21:33:35.897 com.appbuilder.u10837p15559 E/FlurryAgent: Ad server responded with the following error(s):
    2019-04-18 21:33:35.897 com.appbuilder.u10837p15559 E/FlurryAgent: Missing reported Ids


    Also, this appears in the logcat (related with the FlurryAgent):
    2019-04-16 01:55:53.060 ? W/Ads: Required XML attribute "adUnitId" was missing.

    Also, is a little strange that, for configure the Flurry ads in your website, is only needed the "Flurry Banner Name". Normaly is required a API Key to access the ads, and the Ad ID itself.
    I tried to use Flurry settings and using both the names and Ads IDs, but they are not working - probably because of the broken implementation. But despite that, Admob doesn't appear to be selected when building the apps in your website, no matter what.

    hope that it helps :)

    Admob issue is resolved, please uninstall then reinstall to clear your cache. Your existing users will start seeing ads in 24 hours


    Please report back if issue remains.

    Regarding HTTPS, we will look into it.

    Thanks again

    Indeed, now is working!
    Thanks a lot! This will help your service as well, and i really hope to do so because is great! :D

    About the SSL/HTTPS, is really a must in the current internet. Use a unsecure way when building the apps is a little "scary" for new users - and it hurts your SEO to :)

    Have you published to Google Play? If so, please let us know your app URL.

    If not, please use test ad unit only

    _________
    For anyone with admob ad issue, please make sure use test ad unit before you published it to app store. Using real ad unit Id in test app is against admob policy, your app could be banned by admob without your knowledge


    Sample ad units

    The quickest way to enable testing is to use Google-provided test ad units. These ad units are not associated with your AdMob account, so there's no risk of your account generating invalid traffic when using these ad units. Here are sample ad units that point to specific test creatives for each format:

    Admob official test ad unit ID

    Banner: ca-app-pub-3940256099942544/6300978111
    Interstitial: ca-app-pub-3940256099942544/1033173712

    It against Google policy to use non-test ad unit on test app.

    Is against admob rules use "live ads" in apps before they get published, but that doesnt equal to a ban in the account.
    The ad problem started in the last AppYet updates. If its used a "live ad" code in a app that is NOT in the platstore, the ads doesn't show - that's it.

    The issue here appears to be with the buid process in the AppYet side of things. Admob doesn't "block" a account just because he uses a live ad code in a "non published" app in Play Store. If the users didn't receaive any email with a violation strike, then the account is safe.
