Mediating AdMob

This guide explains how you can mediate AdMob as an SDK Mediation partner.

SDK Mediation Intro

SDK mediation enables you to mediate owned third-party SDK ad partners. In order to do this, you simply need to integrate the Smaato SDK as well as the respective third party SDK as described below. Finally, you will also need to configure your ad partner mediation inside of your SPX account via the “Networks” tab.

Initializing

All libraries need to be explicitly initialized.

Please consult the corresponding AdMob initialization guides for Android and/or iOS.

Android Mediation

First, add the following lines to your AndroidManifest.xml file:

<!--GOOGLE ADMob Include the AdActivity -->
<activity android:name="com.google.android.gms.ads.AdActivity"
 android:configChanges="keyboard|keyboardHidden|orientation|screenLayout|uiMode|screenSize|smallestScreenSize"
 android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Translucent" />

Now, add the following line to your project level build.gradle file.

implementation('com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads:20.3.0')

Inside the ZIP file, you will find Smaato’s supported certified SDK mediation adapters, which contain “CSM”.

  1. To add AdMob, add the respective AdMob adapters, as well as the AdMob SDK.
  2. To add a Custom SDK Network: Append your custom network class to the SOMAMediationPlugin class, and define your public method with a parameter to receive the data (JSON) you defined in your SPX custom SDK network line item.
