Before we begin, make sure you have the following installed:

  • Ionic 6 CLI
  • Cordova CLI
  • Google Admob account

 

Step 1: Create a new Ionic 6 Angular application

To create a new Ionic 6 Angular application, open the command prompt and run the following command:

ionic start myApp blank --type=angular

This will create a new Ionic 6 Angular application with the name “myApp” in a new directory.

 

Step 2: Install Admob Plus Cordova plugin

To install the Admob Plus Cordova plugin, run the following command in the root of your Ionic 6 Angular application:

ionic cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-admob-plus

 

Step 3: Import Admob Plus Cordova plugin in your app

Open the “src/app/app.module.ts” file and import the Admob Plus Cordova plugin:

import { AdMob } from 'cordova-plugin-admob-plus/admob';

 

Step 4: Add Admob Plus Cordova plugin in providers

Add the Admob Plus Cordova plugin in providers array in the “src/app/app.module.ts” file:

providers: [
    AdMob,
    ...
],

 

Step 5: Initialize Admob Plus Cordova plugin

Open the “src/app/app.component.ts” file and import Admob Plus Cordova plugin:

import { AdMob } from 'cordova-plugin-admob-plus/admob';

Initialize the Admob Plus Cordova plugin in the constructor:

constructor(private admob: AdMob) {
    this.admob.setDevMode(true);
}

 

Step 6: Show Interstitial Ad

To show an interstitial ad, you need to create a function in the “src/app/app.component.ts” file, and call the show method of the Admob Plus Cordova plugin:

showInterstitial() {
    this.admob.interstitial.show();
}

 

Step 7: Show Banner Ad

To show a banner ad, you need to create a function in the “src/app/app.component.ts” file, and call the show method of the Admob Plus Cordova plugin:

showBanner() {
    this.admob.banner.show();
}

 

Step 8: Add Ad Unit Ids

Add your Ad Unit Ids in the “src/app/app.component.ts” file:

this.admob.interstitial.config({
    id: 'your_interstitial_ad_unit_id',
    isTesting: true
});

this.admob.banner.config({
    id: 'your_banner_ad_unit_id',
    isTesting: true
});

 

Step 9: Add Admob Plus Cordova plugin in Capacitor

If you are using Capacitor, you need to add the Admob Plus Cordova plugin in Capacitor as well. Run the following command to add the plugin in Capacitor:

npx cap sync

 

Step 10: Test the App

To test the app, run the following command:

ionic cordova run android

or

ionic cordova run ios

Make sure to replace “android” with “ios” if you are testing on an iOS device.

You should now see the interstitial and banner ads in your app when you run it on an Android or iOS device.

Note: Remember to replace the Ad Unit Ids with your actual Ad Unit Ids in the “src/app/app.component.ts” file
