Hi all, Tried looking up the policy for using Admob in my apps that are not on Google.
Does anyone know what the policy is/or does anyone have experience with this?
Does Admob care that the app is not in Google Play as long as the app doesn't violate any terms/conditions?
Explanation of the
infringement: ELIMINATION OF

DE GOOGLE PLAY: los editores de AdMob no pueden hacer un uso
inadecuado de ningún producto de Google, como Google Play, YouTube o
Blogger, ni promocionar un uso inadecuado de estos. Esto incluye
eludir las políticas o los términos de los otros productos de
Google (o proporcionar los medios para hacerlo), por ejemplo,
permitiendo a los usuarios descargar vídeos de YouTube.
app was not one of those who were suspended, but complete account has
been suspended and Admob is telling me that they disable adds in this app for ELIMINATION OF GOOGLE PLAY as infringement.
My apps are still in other app stores but I think all my apps will be eventually disabled in Admob.
But it still starts removing the ad units of ALL the apps in the suspended google play account.
This technically means, after a period of anything between 1 month and 6 apps you will no longer have Admob revenue since none of your users will see ads.
That's why you always gotta use an alternative ad network too. In case of admob unit ID removal, the users will at least see some ads.
I would not expect money from them if the whole account gets banned though.
Noone really knows how many ad units suspensions it takes before an admob account is banned.
I had my biggest mistake to rush and archive all admob ad units in hopes the account would remain active and I would get that month's payment, a fairly big one.
My mistake was I archived the most successful app ad units, the ones from the app that gave me more than 60 Euro per day -.-
