So far here is a quick list of issues i have noticed. during this upgrade process
1 - doesn’t show old admob data.
Starts off from the day you upgraded does not show any history. Shows mostly zeros for the first 24’ish hours.
Solution - currently you have to enter old admob and do a lot of math. There is a rumbling that the data will get migrated soon. The zeros will slowly start to go away and fill with real data.
2 - old admob account balance doesn’t move forward.
Solution - the admob people have said it will still get paid to you as normal or in two different payments. One from the old system and one form the new. No minimums because they didn’t notify you of this change.
3 - house ads not showing -
You can setup the new mediation system with house ads mixed with admob. You cannot allocate all your traffic to the house ad any longer. but this has broken the system. supposidly it shows the ad with the highest eCPM. If your house ad is higher than the admob ad it will show the house ad. I set the house ad at $10000.00 and admob at $0.01. Still not showing.
some people said to setup your advertiser account with billing info. - didn’t work
i will try to add a bit of money to my advertiser side account to see if it just cant be zero to use the house ads. Even tho i am not buying ads it might cause it to work.
no solution at this time
4 - prior mediation setups transferring to new console.
this appears to be a crap shoot right now. It might work, partially work or not transfer at all. If you have a complex setup or one you do not want to redo then do not upgrade at this time. There are tons of posts to admob complaining about this.
5 - old admob data fluctuations
I am not sure why but the old admob slowed down and started to have spasms of incorrect data.
Solution - do not believe any of your daily revenues. They have up to a few days for it to be correct. In the past it didn’t take that long but now they are using that time. I think they have some issues right now with the new and old systems partly tied together. The new system updates much more often than the old system did.
6 - all filters on ads per app are all gone
All the ad filters i had on a ton of apps are all gone. but good news is that the filter system is %100 better and easier to use. Just sucks i have to start over on my filters.
No current solution

7 - Delete house ads mess up
So if you decide to try house ads you need to know you cant get rid of them all the way. One thing that breaks is the eCPM of the admob unit. It will never return to 0.0 you have to now setup a floor eCPM for that ad spot.
Solution - the closest you can get it 0.01 so set it at that if you want no essentially no eCPM floor. or set it as you want if you decide to use a floor eCPM.
old and new admob login pages
this is the old admob login page i use - http://www.admob.com/home/login/?access=1&forward_url=%2Fmy_sites%2F
this is the new one - https://apps.admob.com/#home
If you have anything to add, give as much info as you can and what you might have found researching it or through trial and error. Doing this might make it easier to get through this happy fun time.
