Android | AdMob Banner Ads for Android Studio

Banner ads are a rectangular image or text ads that occupy a spot within an app’s layout. If you’re new to mobile advertising, banner ads are the easiest to implement. This article shows you how to integrate banner ads from AdMob into an Android app.
Example:
 

First, create a new project in Android Studio and add the following codes to import the Google Mobile Ads SDK. 
In the project-level build.gradle file, add the highlighted code to the allprojects section. 

allprojects
{
    repositories
    {
        google()
        jcenter()    
    }
}

In the app-level build.gradle file, add the highlighted code to the dependencies section.  

dependencies
{
    implementation fileTree(dir
                            : 'libs', include
                            : [ '*.jar' ])
    implementation 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:26.1.0' 
    implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads:19.3.0'
}

Add you Admob App Id in the AndroidManifest.xml file between the “<application> </application>” tag like below.

            android:value="@string/admob_app_id"/>
</application>

Add the following code to MainActivity to initialize Mobile Ads SDK (this only needs to be done once in the app lifecycle). You can find the App ID in the AdMob console.

        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
 
        // Initialize the Mobile Ads SDK
        MobileAds.initialize(this, new OnInitializationCompleteListener() {
            @Override
            public void onInitializationComplete(InitializationStatus initializationStatus) {
             Toast.makeText(this, " sucesfull ", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
            }
        });
