I have some app generator apps recently made and as a test set some of them with advertising. I was mostly curious as to how many impressions would result in income -- any amount of income, even pennies.
But I see no impressions listed at all.
Are ads even working for App generator apps? Were we supposed to set them for webos in the ad service (what I had read) or some other format? And based on income others have listed, is there even a point to setting them up for ads at all? A yearly income of a couple of pennies wouldn't exactly be worth the trouble.

Yes they are working but fill rate is fairly low at the moment. It can take a while for your app's fill to increase as well.
You can check your ad services dashboard to see if you have requests coming in, this will let you know that you have configured your app correctly.

Thanks for the reply.
The odd thing is, requests are coming in, but no impressions at all. My app generator apps have been up for around a week, and I see:
0.00% Fill Rate
$0.00 eCPM *
Shouldn't there be some impressions? Any impressions? I realize it's a small amount of requests, but thought I'd see some impressions show up.

352 is fairly low, there is a default threshold that needs to be crossed before real ads will be served, I believe this is set to 1000. With time you should start seeing fill.

If you have 0 requests then it likely means an incorrect Zone ID was used when setting up your app in the App Generator portal.
