Beginning Jan 23, 2018, Google Mobile Ads SDK versions older than 7.0.0 will no longer be supported. Publishers with these older versions will not be able to serve ads in their apps. Please ensure that you have upgraded to the latest version of the Google Mobile Ads SDK.

Integrating maio with Mediation

This guide is intended for publishers who want to use the Google Mobile Ads SDK to load and display ads from maio via mediation. It covers how to add maio to an ad unit's mediation configuration, and how to integrate the maio SDK and adapter into an iOS app.

The dashboard interface for maio uses Japanese text for its labels, buttons, and descriptions, and the screenshots in this guide have not been translated. In this guide's descriptions and instructions however, labels and buttons are referenced with their English language equivalents. "URL スキーム," for example, is "URL Scheme," and so on.

Step 2: Configure mediation settings for your AdMob ad unit

You need to add maio to the mediation configuration for your ad unit. First sign in to your AdMob account.

Next, follow the instructions for either AdMob or AdMob Beta depending on which version of the AdMob UI you're using.

Navigate to the Monetize tab and select your app from the list of all your applications on the left-hand side. Click the link in the mediation column for the ad unit to which you want to add maio.

Next, click NEW AD NETWORK. A list of supported ad networks will be shown.

Select maio from the list of networks provided. Enter the Media ID and Zone ID obtained in the previous section and click Continue.

Enter an eCPM value for maio and click Save.

AdMob Beta

Navigate to the Mediation tab. If you have an existing mediation group you'd like to modify, click the name of that mediation group to edit it, and skip ahead to Add maio as an ad source.

To create a new mediation group, select Create Mediation Group.

Enter your Ad Format and Platform, then click Continue.

Give your mediation group a Name, and select locations to target. Next, set the mediation group status to Enabled, and then click Add Ad Units.

Associate this mediation group with one or more of your existing AdMob ad units. Then, click Done.

You should now see the ad units card populated with the ad units you selected as shown below:

Add maio as an ad source

In the Ad Sources card, select Add Ad Network.

Select maio as the ad network and enter an eCPM value. Then click Continue.

Enter the Media ID and Zone ID obtained in the previous section and click Done.

Using rewarded video ads

In the settings for your rewarded video ad unit, check the Override reward settings from third-party ad networks when using AdMob mediation so that you provide the same reward to the user no matter which ad network is served.

Ad unit setup screen

If you don't override the reward, the maio adapter defaults to a reward of type "" (empty string) with value 1.

For more information on setting reward values for AdMob ad units, see Create an ad unit.

Add the following line to your project's Podfile:
