How to&Answers:

Try to use Ad unit ID.

You may mistakenly use the APP ID or PUBLISHER ID.. (Like my mistake)

Sample Ad Unit ID (it contains xxxxx/xxxxx)

ca-app-pub-9390048287444061/3221111032 – correct one

Sample App ID (it contains xxxxx~xxxxx)

ca-app-pub-9390048287444061~1222077830 – wrong one

Answer:

the issue is solved by adding the ad-Unit Id Other than publisher id and adding the test device id through AdRequest

Answer:

as you say,
you have done all attempt write all code perfectly in manifest as well as build.gradle file.
this same problem was to me.

so after that i have resolved this problem by correcting my ad-mob unit id and also
it was written in uppercase.so i modify it to lowercase and works perfectly.

This works for me.Hope this help others too!!.

Answer:

I had the same problem.

I believe Error Code 1 is due to many different reasons, but mine was wrong adSize. I set up for NativeAdExpress, but was giving wrong dimensions in XML, MEDIUM_RECTANGLE worked for my NativeAdExpress view.

Answer:

try adding below code to you gradle file.

compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads:8.1.0'
