    How am I doing? (admob stats)

    So in July last year I finally published my app to the play store. Here are my approx admob stats up until now:

    Requests : 3.7 mill.
    Fill Rate : 99.6%
    RPM & eCPM : $0.15
    Total Revenue : ~$550

    How am I doing? (at least average?) Is there something more I should be doing? I am looking for App Walls to add in my "More Apps" sections (awaiting reply from ~3 networks atm). I really don't want anything that I myself don't like in other's apps and that includes icons, push notifications, anything even remotely intrusive. But there's got to be a better way than just banner ads.. Any ideas? Kindly post here (or pm, if you want to)

    Anyways, here's my app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=x.abcd

    Completely free, it's called "Hacking tutorials".

    Regards,
    Xeus

    Where are your users from? What ad types are u using? $0.15 eCPM seems to be quite low. We got 3.1 mill impressions and have made $4.300. (eCPM = $1.27). We use Admobīs banners & interstitials

    Wow!

    I use banners ads only with a single interstitial at app exit.
    Do you mind giving me a link to your app? I'd definitely like to check it out.

    A third of my impressions come from US, a fifth from India ... then it's UK, Canada and others.

    Could I be doing something more?

    Its the one in my signature ;-)

    With those demographics, you should be doing way more i guess.
    Whats your CTR? What ad company are you using?

    I think you have to be more aggressive in your Ad strategy ,
    Also you can try to use PPD Ad networks ,
    you can check StartApp and sign from my referral link in my signature for a signup bonus
    Sign up for StartApp for 15$ bonus on first 1000 download + 15$ for the first 250K Impressions , Use my referral link

    Yes Definitely! I'll have to be more aggressive.. :-O

    I really hate StartApp ... I saw their app drawer that's "always there" in another app and I would never add that to my app.
    I reckon I'm going to start experimenting with interstitial ads and other networks too..
    @BaksaiApps My average CTR is at around 0.26%.. I know that's very low I'll have to seriously redesign ad placements..
    (Great app btw! I'm hooked XD)

    letīs compare it to my stats:
    3.8 M impressions (over the last 6 months)
    eCPM 5.57
    CTR 10.9
    Earnings: $21.150

    An eCPM of $0.15 is really frustrating.

    By the way, I was using banners only.

    I think there is not much to do about the banners, i mean, you can put it on top or at the bottom of the screen (i suppose you are showing them all the time) and thatīs it, right?. I read somewhere that reading apps (yours might be considered) got lower CTR than usual because you are spending a lot of time focus on the text, so you don't really pay much attention to the banners. Games, on the other hand, have some natural pauses (level completed/failed) where banners can attract users attention.

    Interstitial should work good in your app ;-)

    I get around 40-60k impressions a day. I just found my mistake. I didn't put my banner ad in a <FrameLayout>... It was in the Scrollview so it just went out of view and kept reloading in the background while not visible. I can't believe I didn't notice this before XD, but then again I don't really care about getting paid all that much. It's just a hobby, but still I do want to be at least average.

    I'm looking into In-App payment options too, now that I'm upping my advertisement, to provide an option to remove ads.
    @armando, wow that's quite impressive! ..thank you for the stats.. I thought this was just as much as banners get! (freaking $0.15 eCPM) ...ahh, I guess now I'm on the right track :-)

    Watch out, it is insane CTR for banner
