I've never uploaded to GooglePlay, but unless it's run on magic I think it might be worth waiting a bit longer than 24 hours before looking into earnings.

Impressions are the time an ad is seen, clicking is not taken into account. Also, the per-click revenue that you will generate will depend on the ads that are available. Don't quote me on this, but this is the general idea if I'm not mistaken.

You will only receive something when clicks on advertisements, that's how things work. Impressions is when your advertisements are displayed successful in your application, so you'll be able to have many impressions without any profit, if no clicks.

@vitorfgd LOL tell me about it. 2 years on AdSense, Amazon and a few others and I think id make more money holding a coffee can on a street corner. @joelbelo when was the last time your were enjoying a video game and even noticed the ad - not even clicking it? the money unfortunately in the in-game purchases etc.

To make money with Ads, you need a LOT of downloads and a lot of impressions.

On average, a banner Ad with Google AdMob could earn you ~$2 (varies) for every 1,000 impressions assuming you get 2% clicks. If no clicks, no $.

You need tens of thousands of impressions per day for it to start generating some ok income, and hundreds of thousands of you want decent income.

Something I've noticed, the click rate % is highly dependent on the audience type. Casuals will click, hardcore gamers will not.

MoPub Marketplace Ads from my own experience, are $ per impression and NOT $ per click (like AdMob).

What I did when I was using Marketplace, was set the CPM to $1.5 minimum, so it would only show Ads from bidders who are willing to pay that much for 1,000 impressions. If none, it would show AdMob ads.

There's pros and cons, if your particular audience don't click, then $ per impression will generate passive income for you.
