Add a third-party ad network to a mediation group

 

This content applies to the newest version of AdMob

 

After you've created a mediation group, you need to add ad sources to fill the ad requests it will receive. When you add a third-party ad network, you can choose to optimize it or not, set an eCPM value (if applicable), and enable or disable other options.


Select one of the following options below to add a third-party ad network to a mediation group.

Add a third-party ad network with optimization

Complete the steps below to add a third-party ad network as an ad source in a mediation group. 

  1. Sign in to your AdMob account at https://apps.admob.com.
  2. Click Mediation in the sidebar.
  3. Click the name of the mediation group to which you're adding the network. 
  4. Click Add ad network in the ad sources table.
  5. Select an ad network from the drop-down menu. The Optimize option is enabled by default. Note: Some ad networks may not support optimization and this option may not appear.
  6. Enter the credentials required by the ad network you selected. Note: If you've already used this ad network in another mediation group, you won't be asked for the credentials again.
  7. Review and check the Authorization checkbox to authorize AdMob and Google to access your account. Note: If you've previously authorized this ad network, you won't be asked again.
  8. Enter an eCPM to use for this network until AdMob can gather enough data for optimization. The eCPM will be used to dynamically position the network in the mediation chain where it will compete with other ad sources to fill ad requests.
  9. Click Continue.
  10. Enter the configuration details for each ad unit. In most cases, these details will be available in your account with the ad network.

  11. Click Done.

  12. Click Save. The mediation group will be saved.

 

 

Don't forget to use the Google Developers guide to implement mediation in your apps. If you don't complete this step, mediation won't be able to fill incoming ad requests.
