Generated a zoneID, ad doesnt display

Hey guys, after implementing the ads into my app using the test zoneID, I decided to get the proper zone for the app I generated in the Advertisement service last week, problem is the ads no longer generate, ive followed the steps properly to get a zoneID for the app, although my app wasnt "approved" like the tutorial said, I was just able to generate the zone myself, another wierd thing is that the request are showing up in the dashboard, but the ads arent displaying in my app... anyone have an Idea whats going on?

It can take a few weeks for fill rate to ramp up. Fill is also greatly reliant on geography and app adoption as well, so the more users from more geographic regions the better you will see your fill.

Re: Generated a zoneID, ad doesnt display

but the app isnt displaying the ads with my zoneid, whats the point of including ads if nothing displays?

I think you might be understanding me wrong. I did discover that the app wasnt set to "cascades" so I made a new app afew days ago and set it to cascades, still nothing, plus no requests anymore.

Re: Generated a zoneID, ad doesnt display

No requests typically indicates an issue with the zone ID being used, are you sure you're using the zone ID and not the site ID? Requests should appear almost instantly in the dashboard.

Re: Generated a zoneID, ad doesnt display

As soon as you said that I went to double check to see if im using the correct zoneID, and there were 2 requests in the dashboard. but ads are still not showing up, why is that?? my zone Id is 194589.

Please review my first post. Fill does not start immediately, it can take a few weeks.

Re: Generated a zoneID, ad doesnt display

so should I release the app as it is? or wait for a few weeks?

Re: Generated a zoneID, ad doesnt display

It is not just a matter of time, you need increased and diversified requests. The best way to start getting these requests would be to release the app.
