Don’t click on ads like that admob may ban your app and use test mode when your testing your app.
AS far as i know admob has both CPC (cost per click ) and CPM ( per impression) ads…admob serves anyone of these ad in your app based on their bidding.So if your app served with CPM ads you will get money for impression and if its served with CPC ads you will get money for clicks
At Airpush our display ads pay on an CPM basis from impressions on the ads. The associated CPM is determined by the country of the user and their level of engagement on the ads. With us, you will still earn from impressions on the ads without any clicks, but the associated CPM will not be as strong as compared to receiving some clicks.
oh and another thing. does admob ban you for getting too many “impressions” from one device?
I’ve not had any more than a few clicks really and probably won’t get any more until I release it publicly.
I might however get a few impressions from people who are testing it. Is this risky?
EDIT: Sorry to ask so many questions. I’m just really really worried.
Last one: if my friends (in the same city, on their phones) test the game and click on ads, is that risky too? Do they check per device or per location?
To prevent the surprise google is making for you… I"ll just say you will probably get suspended for 30 days any day soon , because I’ve done the exact same thing and they wouldn’t forgive even for few little ‘fake’ impressions.
