Placement Targeting - "Specific Mobile Apps"

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi ,

 

I have set up Mobile App Install campaign under Display Network Only.

 

When I go to Placement targeting in "Display Network" tab, I select "Specific Mobile Apps" option from the dropdown.

 

Now, I am trying to search this app  - 

 

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.xmadhouseapp.games.oneStripPolygonPuzzleENG

 

But the search options, never find this App to target. The above App has Admob SDK to show ad from Adwords in Display Network campaign.

 

Does someone know this issue and how to fix it?

 

Thanks, PraveenPlacement Targeting.jpg

 Hi Praveen 

 

Just copy this part " com.xmadhouseapp.games.oneStripPolygonPuzzleENG" from the link you have shared of the play store.

 

Go to AdWords Editor and add this in campaign where you want to run that. Check the screenshot attached.

I tried searching by all options but can not find it.

It is very important for us to finish this step as we are in midst of doing adwords test and stuck because of this issue.

Can you try yourself inside placement targeting and show me the screenshots if you can see this app in search result?

Thanks,
Praveen

I can test later, but it could be that the app does not allow ads.

It allows ad as we have integrated admob sdk and we have already served 500 impressions from other ads as per admob reports.

Do you work for Google?
If Not then as per our understanding - Admob SDK is designed to show ads for Mobile apps and Adsense is For Mobile web.

Admob shows ads from Adwords and Doubleclick Exchange and other integrated adnetworks inside Admob.
