Native ads refer to a form of advertising that allows for customization of the ad's appearance, seamlessly blending it with the app's design to provide a natural and engaging experience for users. With native ads, you have the creative freedom to design the ad's layout, look and feel, and placement within your app, thereby enabling you to achieve a cohesive and integrated advertising experience.
It's important to note that Pangle currently supports four different native ad formats outside of the Chinese Mainland, including a large image with a 1.91:1 ratio, 1280*720 video, square image, and square video. As a developer, it's essential to ensure that the native ad format and size comply with Pangle's specific requirements to ensure optimal ad performance and user experience.
Create an app and native ad placement on the Pangle platform
Native ads are ad assets that are presented to users via UI components. It can be formatted to match your app's visual design. When a native ad loads, your app receives an ad object that contains its assets, and the app is then responsible for displaying them.
Broadly speaking, there are three steps to successfully implement Native Ads:
Loading an ad is accomplished using the
load() method in the
PAGNativeAd class. The
load() method requires an ad slot id, an instance object of
PAGNativeRequest, and a
PAGNativeAdLoadListener to be notified when ad loading succeeds or fails. The loaded
PAGNativeAd object is provided as a parameter in the success callback.
PAGNativeRequest is an Ad Loading Manager. It is recommended to be the member variable of the Activity.
Use the method of PAGNativeAd to load the ad, and register the PAGNativeAdLoadListener callback.
This method is invoked when an ad fails to load. It includes an error parameter of type Error that indicates what type of failure occurred. For more information, refer to the ErrorCode section
This method is executed when an ad material is loaded successfully.
Before loading a native ad, you should have finished the design of a native ad. Assume you have finished the design of the native layout. Example as below：
Then inflate the layout in the app. In this example, we're inflating an XML layout that contains views for displaying a native ad.
Populate the Asset Views
Ad event callbacks need to be registered before displaying an ad. Each method in the event callback corresponds to an event in the ad lifecycle.
This method is invoked when the ad is displayed, covering the device's screen.
This method is invoked when the ad is clicked by the user.
This method is invoked when the ad disappears.
Calling getNativeAdData() will return a PAGNativeAdData ad data object
void registerViewForInteraction(ViewGroup container, List<View> clickViews, List<View> creativeViews, View dislikeView, PAGNativeAdInteractionListener listener)
Call timing: The developer must call the PAGNativeAd ad object before displaying it; the function of this method is to register ad billing events and ad interaction callback events
container: The root view of the ad component
clickViews: Ad component View collection that needs to register for ordinary click events
creativeViews: Ad component View collection that needs to register creative click events
dislikeView: The custom ad closes the View, and calls back through the onAdDismissed method of PAGNativeAdInteractionListener after clicking. Note that it is not allowed to set any click events on the View, otherwise, the ad close event callback (onAdDismissed) will be invalid.
PAGNativeAdInteractionListener : Ad interaction events
Returns an advertising Icon object PAGImageItem
Returns an ad title of type String
Returns an ad description of type String
Returns the content of the advertisement button of type String
Returns an advertisement View of type PAGMediaView, where PAGMediaView may be a picture or a video View
Returns a Pangle ad logo view
Returns the height of the ad image of type int
Returns the width of the ad image of type int
Returns an ad image Url of type String
Upon completing the integration, it is essential to ensure that you test your app functionality prior to launching it to end users. It is highly recommended that you employ test ads rather than live ads.
To facilitate the testing process, Pangle offers a "test mode" that is specifically designed to generate test ads for every request. You can seamlessly implement this mode in your app during the coding, testing, and debugging phase, and gain confidence that your app's ad functionality is fully operational before deploying it to end users.
Refer to the How to add a test device? to add your device to the test devices on the Pangle platform.
