Anyone experienced this problem before? Error 403 means request is denied by the server but my app was not banned in fact it can receive ads sometimes about 20k+ impression daily.
Average daily impressions of this app is around 150K+ but it dropped so hard to 20k+ daily because of the error below… I have other apps with admob and this problem is not occurring…
I contacted admob and they said everything is working and they can see ads on the app… Please share your experience… tnx
05-05 10:17:55.319: W/Ads(20196): There was a problem getting an ad response. ErrorCode: 0
05-05 10:17:55.327: W/Ads(20196): Failed to load ad: 0
05-05 10:17:55.366: W/Ads(25768): Received error HTTP response code: 403
I did not check my logcat, but i am sure that something similar or different is happening to my 2 apps.
fill rate is ad low as 17% sometimes. its not possible with admob who provide 99.9% fill rates.
so i contacted them and shared my ads code snippet. they told me that i am requesting new ads very soon after previous ad request is failed.
they told me that there must be delay of 7-8 seconds for placing second ad request if first ad request is failed and so on.
though i did not correct it yet and its still have same results.
Fill rate is the same, 98% to 100% but the problem is the app cannot request ads because it is denied(HTTP error 403) by their servers. I tried changing the package name of the app and everything is okay… Their system partially banned my app I think without any reason… I think this is a bug because even their support told me everything is okay…
I hate to say that their support only replies once in a blue moon…
hahaha you got it It was May 1 when this happened… Google technical support is keep asking data with me because they don’t understand why my request are all rejected… They are not aware of this crazy random banning sh-i-t…
I have terrible fill rate with admob. I know it sounds strange. but this is how it is. for few apps its even 20-30%.
I do not have any clue what is causing it. Though i never experienced any issue during my testing. ads appear very soon.
By the way how you came to know and narrow down that it is some “HTTP 403” issue?? in logcat or it appeared on ad panel??
I have attached the admob stats for this sunday. just have a look…
