Set interstitial frequency capping for apps

Select your version of AdMob to view this content

 

AdMob (newest version)

Interstitial frequency capping lets you limit the number of times interstitial ads appear to the same person. When you set interstitial frequency capping for an entire app or a specific ad unit, you specify a limit to the number of impressions you'll allow per minute, per hour, or per day for an individual user. Setting an interstitial frequency cap can be helpful if you want to limit the number of times someone sees an ad.

Please note the following:

  • A change to frequency capping, such as changing the cap from two to three, can take up to a day to take effect.
  • A slight server delay can occasionally result in the frequency cap that you've set being exceeded.
