Ad serving

I'm having performance problems
Use this troubleshooter to help you solve performance problems with your AdMob account.
How long does it take for ads to begin appearing after the first ad request?

When apps are newly registered with AdMob, it typically takes up to an hour and a few ad requests to allow inventory to build. Because of this, you may not see live impressions immediately.

Note: In some cases, it may take longer than an hour. Please wait 24 hours before seeking additional help.

Once your app is making more requests, you should see more consistent results. Please note that test ads operate through the same channels as live ads. Being able to return a test ad ensures that your application is communicating properly with our network.

How do I restore a removed ad unit?
At this time, you cannot restore an ad unit once it has been removed. All ad serving and settings associated with a removed ad unit are disabled, and you no longer have access to the ad unit from the app page. However, you can still view the ad unit's historical data if it generated reporting data for the selected date range in a report.
