i don't know, you must give it try for yourself ;)
i'm just newbie here on playstore at least 1 yr now, me joining nov 2017,
my apps just wallpaper, ringtones, and guide. but i've focused on guide app for 2018, and i'll say it makes good money for admob
guide apps are perfect for CPA/CPI offers, just make button "Get The Game" and content locker with offers ;)
Users downloads guide apps only because they want to get game and they are in wrong place.

do you guys have tried for backup ads? admob + startapp
i hve friend he use backup ads for wallpaper apps,
so if this app got banned by google, backup ads still showing and made a money ,
just made startapp ads showing when user click back button btw,
but this trick made a lil bit money, cause startapp rate is low based by cpm, not cpc,
atleast he still payout a month for 100k app install wallpaper app(banned), don't know about user active , but he got $70 for a month,

Yes, in my ios games I put Chartboost ads as first option, and if they are not available then show Admob. And I can turn ads off and on ads in Chartboost dashboard when I want. Now all CB ads are switched off as their ecpm was much lower than admob, but in case I need I can turn them back immediately, without updating an app.
You HAVE to do such backup.

I switch Chartboost ads campaign on/off from my Chartboost dashboard.
In app, if CB ad is served it will be shown, if CB ad is not served (I turned them off) then admob ad is shown.
You just do it opposite, where admob is main option. If admob ads will be disabled you can turn on CB and continue to earn

So you have experience with ChartBoost and Admob? Which is the best?
Have you ever tried Facebook Audience Network too?

I turned off all Chartboost ads in my games, because Admob has higher ecpm.
Didn't tried FB...

Do you guys promote your apps at all? I've released two games I made from scratch and it's become very obvious that they won't perform well if I just upload them and leave then alone. One has gotten about 50 installs in 5-6 months and the other one I just uploaded a week or two ago has only 1 install.

I'm thinking I might try just making a bunch of small games in hopes that @vinku is right and some just perform well while others don't. But any tips or thoughts are appreciated (except the ones about gplay not being worth it, I don't buy that it's dead)
