    @fatos you are welcome.Btw in my opinion don't go for ppd model ads,Its from my experience why i mean it :) .Its always safe to play with interstitial/in-app banner ads

    @TheShadow Yes Im using normal ads like interstitials and others but I thought it will be good to combine whith any PPD ad,combinations was good for me.

    MobileCore looks awsome,I will try to implement today later ☺

    I've actually used MobileCore before. Their ads are SUPER clean and nice looking and their reps are really good with replying.

    The apps that I had with MobileCore got banned though, and I didn't get around to making new ones, but their rates were pretty high. They pay per action I believe, so when someone downloads an app (that one of their ads lead to) and installs it, you get paid. They also pay on time :)

    Oh it wasn't because of MobileCore. Someone complained about my app I think and Google took it down. Didn't reply to my appeal either:( Ah well, c'est la vie I suppose.

    I recommend exploring other markets. They are growing steadily and are starting to become a good source of downloads. Samsung, Opera, Mobango. Try them.

    You can but you have to be careful. If they connect it to your old account in any way, they can ban it too.

    Some obvious things not to have are:
    same email address
    same credit card (to pay for the developer fee)
    same name
    same package names for previously banned applications

    Easiest is to ask a friend who doesn't have any interest in applications, or don't think they will in the future.

    Do you mean when selling your apps on Google Play? Or for advertising companies like Airpush and such?

    Another thing to look out for with ad networks is whether they have adult filters. You can get banned from google if you show adverts that are age-inappropriate to your app submission.

    With this in mind, I can recommend adbuddiz, who have adult filters and have great looking HD interstitial ads that pay around $1.20 per install in tier 1 countries. If you have a lot of traffic though the fill rate won't be so great. Only needs basic internet permission in the manifest too, which is attractive for us and users.

    Tap for Tap are great if you're like me and have a zero advertising budget. It's a money earner and tap exchange combined so you can promote your app on other users apps with banners and interstitials, also you can set a sliding scale, say 60% earnings 40% promotion. You can also show ads in your own apps that promote your other apps. Lots of control in their control panel. Once it's integrated you can change percentages in the control panel, no need to update the app. You can use their own ad designs or upload your own creatives for banners and interstitials. Has adult filters too.

    The above two work best on google play.

    An ad network for any app marketplace is pollfish, it's pretty neat. There's a small square in the corner of the app screen, it slides out when tapped for the user to do a survey. The user has a chance to win a $10 amazon voucher and you get a guaranteed $0.30 per completed survey. It's a really user friendly network, not intrusive at all and ethical with no dodgy content and just an internet permission. No adult filters needed as they monitor themselves.

    Depending on how you use them there's no problem getting 100% fillrate. Tap for Tap alone can be set to guarantee 100% fillrate.

    To be honest though, I've been building apps for nearly 6 years now and 'internet marketing' long before that and have tried virtually every network you can find with google and seen plenty come and go and change their business models (I used to bank big with leadbolt website content lockers before they went legit lol!). For shear consistancy, reliability and fillrates admob is still hard to beat.

    PS, for me anyway, Samsung marketplace gets better and better, it's approaching gplay stats now, especially over the last six months or so, plus they manually test apps on multiple devices to ensure they work properly. I let them do all the testing work now before submitting apps anywhere else!

    Anyway, sorry for the long post, gonna stop now, driller killer is on the tv!
