Default [Q] Proper way to do Mediation on Android

Hi Guys,

I have been using Admob for half a year and I'm about ready to start mediation to protect myself in case I get banned. I have been looking at MoPub and I tried to implement Admob with it and it just didn't work. So I came to this forum to ask all of you what is the best way to do mediation on Android. I have global audience (80 percent from US, 20 percent from the rest of the world).

Thanks!

Hey.

I had the same problem and I just added admob and mopub to my app. I uses a web database to configure which ads the app would load. On app start I would check the database and question it which ad I should show. After this I just loaded either mopub or admob

We enabled AdMob's mediation a few months ago, started with an extra account at Millenial Media in an attempt to increase prices, but so far it kinda falls below our expectation. Fortunately enabling AdMob's mediation is painless, integrating the MMSDK took only a day of work so it's not a lot of lost time either.

I can confirm: adding mediation didn't increase my revenue. I think mediation is not for small companies and indie developers, it is for big companies, when each 0.01$ in RPM is critical.

Hmm I read mixed results here, some say It worked for them fine. Maybe give it some time.

I think, if you choose right ad networks for mediation, it will work perfectly. First it should be some premium network and second network will take care of the rest...
