Mobile-specific advertising networks are the best ways to serve ads on the users’ mobile screen. Nowadays, people spend much more time on their phones than on their computers. So, it is essential for ad networks to exclusively serve ads to mobile devices and thus efficiently streamline the process. AdMob is Google’s very own premium mobile ad network that allows publishers to monetize their mobile apps with relevant ads from a huge inventory of advertisers. AppLovin is a popular mobile advertising company which was founded in 2011. They are one of the most trusted mobile advertising networks that enable both mobile apps and games monetization, and also helps mobile app developers to earn higher revenue through it.
