Creating a Dev Blog for something to look back on for useful info about analytics. Also any advice would be great.

To start I publish mainly on Google Play and only 2 apps on Amazon. The only ad network that I use is Chart boost due to the fact that my programming knowledge is limited and I like to keep things simple. I will post a screenshot of my Google Play Download page first. So far my downloads are pretty terrible but my apps also are not great. However my chart boost impression have been increasing which is good.

So my future goals are to start using the Amazon appstore more, better quality apps and more revenue. 

If anyone has any advice I could really use it. Thanks in advance.

You should definitely use another ad network as your backup.
It is not difficult, at a listener for the chartboost class and override the methods. The one particular method you're interested is the one that says that it's failed to retrieve an ad from their servers. There, you would implement your back up ad, like an AdMob interstitial.

It's very difficult to get downloads, unfortunately. My suggestion is to indeed work on more polished games and keep learning to become the best dev you can be.

All the best

This. I use a combination of Chartboost and Admob. I plan to also use Applovin as a third backup.

Thank you for your advice Geowhere it is greatly appreciated. I am working on a polished game now that I may integrate both ad networks into.

Quick Update On My Game Dev Log:

 Recently I have been converting/uploading many former Google Play apps to the Amazon App store. The results have been excellent. So far my Amazon apps are greatly outweighing my Google Play apps in impressions and bootups. I will definitely think of the Amazon App store more seriously now.

So my next question is, Is the Chartboost 6 SDK worth updating to? Chartboost keeps telling me how great it is but I would really like to hear someones opinion.

Hello Everyone long time since I updated this last. Since then my earnings earnings have just about doubled this is significant to me because for months I went without earning a single penny. The main reason why my earnings have doubled is because I began publishing to the amazon app store and I integrated Amazon Chartboost ads into those apps. Also the Amazon appstore is much less crowded and less competitive. And once again Amazon has greatly outweighed. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask I will do my best to answer.
