You need to install the proper SDK for ad network that you wanna test/use. In the dashboard you choose test ads if you wanna test but if you tought test in long term yes you need to upload the apk to the store and see the result!

Just include the SDKs of the 5 biggest ad networks and build your game.

There's not that many ad networks out there [smile]

also,to change the ordering/priority of the ad networks, you can either use an ad mediation service, or you can simply get a web host and upload a simple xml/plist file which has the ordering/priorities and is downloaded on the application start

Good question - I haven't tried mediation - maybe they have all of the ad info/settings in one place? Also, it could be laziness

Mediators are for banner ads because they are a horror to setup
and you have to keep admob updated if you dont want to get banned.

And most often they run out of ads to show so you want to fall back on another ad network and you want that process to be automated.
