In this post I will show how you can add banner ads to your Ionic apps. I will be doing this on a new app but you can do it to your existing app as well. I have also written a post on Adding banner ads to Ionic 2 apps, so if you are looking for Ionic 2 apps You can check that post out as well.

I no longer recommend using the AdMob Pro plugin. There is a much better AdMob Free plugin that you should use. I have written a blog post onĀ  how you can implement banner ads using it. I highly recommend that you use that plugin over the AdMob Pro plugin.


Step 1)

We will first start by creating a new Ionic project by issuing the following command in the command prompt


Step 2)

Now we will need to add the platform to out app. So will do the following command


Step 3)

As we will be using the AdMob Pro plugin we will need to download it in our project. We will do that by the following command

you can read more about the plugin in the Admob pro plugin documentation


Step 4)

Now we will need to add the following code to the $ionicPlatform.ready() in the app.js file

So the finished app.js file looks like this:


NOTE: The app.js file will be different for each template namely tabs,bank,sideMenu, make sure you add the code to the $ionicPlatform.ready() function and no to any function inside it.

    Updated the hooks directory to have execute permissions
    Error: Registry returned 404 for GET on

    • you can add the plugin using –> plugin add cordova-plugin-admobpro

      the post has been updated.


      • Hi , I will install cordova-plugin-admobpro to new project , but when build android apk . it’s failed to build the error in admobpro . can you download admob plugin before update post. I want to install manual in my project ?

        • You can remove the current plugin by doing

          –> ionic plugin remove plugin-name

          then add the plugin the new way. Both ways will add the same plugin but the old way does not work anymore, So you have to add the plugin using the following

          –> cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-admobpro
          –> ionic plugin add cordova-plugin-admobpro


          • what’s ionic framework version you use? command line – “ionic -v” ?

          • I am using the latest beta version 2.0.0-beta.36

    C:AGS_PROJECTSMM_ProjectMM_GIT_CODEwindowsapp_bannerMyNewApp>cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-admobpro
    Error: Failed to fetch plugin cordova-plugin-admobpro via registry.
    Probably this is either a connection problem, or plugin spec is incorrect.
    Check your connection and plugin name/version/URL.
    “npm” command line tool is not installed: make sure it is accessible on your PATH.
