After reactivating account, Admob suspended ads on my Apps and I submitted an appeal.

But I got automatic response by admob :
GOOGLE PLAY REMOVAL: AdMob publishers are not permitted to abuse or promote the abuse of any Google product, such as Google Play, YouTube, or Blogger. This includes circumventing, or providing the means to circumvent, the policies or terms of these or other Google products, such as by allowing users to download YouTube videos.
 
Somebody success with it?

I've seen the same thing, not sure how to resolve it. I don't see any indication of suspended apps on Admob site..

I got the same thing. But before I appealed I had sent an implementation assistance request. That request got a human (& friendly) response, suggesting that I need t appeal but offering to help in case there were any snags with the appeal.

You mean what SDK version Corona plugin is using? Use adb commandline tool with a connected device, run the app

 

>adb logcat -s Corona *:S

06-15 13:11:29.414  3070  3070 I Corona  : plugin.kidoz: 1.4.5 (SDK: 0.8.5.1)

...

Thank you! :) I thought there is another way to check. But it's ok.

I suspect you might have been dropped in the search rankings. Have you checked in AppAnnie (or any other similar service)?

App Annie was showing fine couple of days back. after doing some research we found out that Google has changed its algorithm, that's the reason its happening now, could be a glitch which they might fix or might not we don't know. It has effected devs worldwide though :(

References to the algo change? Because I've had some thoughts around their new metadata changes, that sideloaded apps had previously counted towards downloads (https://android-developers.googleblog.com/2018/06/google-play-security-metadata-and.html).

I have never tried Kidoz for my kids games but I'm considering it. Before implementing the SDK, I'd like to have a general idea of what to expect for eCPM. For those using Kidoz, can you please share if you are happy with the eCPM on both Android and on iOS? Thank you in advance for any replies.

Hey guys, just wanted to chime in a little for all the newcomers to this thread, figuring: "What's going on with Kidoz?"

The issues mentioned in this thread were resolved as fast as possible by newest Kidoz SDK update, which was implemented by Corona straight away. You can use Kidoz Corona plugin like before, without any hiccups.

Also, if I can ask you politely to move the discussion of a download drop caused by Google's change of algorithms to another thread, as it has nothing to do with Corona or Kidoz directly and may mislead Corona users, who just came to this thread, figuring out, what that means for Kidoz and what they should do about it.

Well the drop i see is VERY much connected to suspension i got from using the kidoz adds 
Also kidoz wasn't very help full , responding to mails or admitted that the problems was theres 
there #1 focus was to get there adds working 

any how 
BE WARNED 
if you use Kidoz you are taking a risk
it may be safe for now but what appens next time google do a update ?? 
for me its not worth risking my account for it

At first I too thought my drop in downloads was related to Kidoz, but it appears that it was just a coincidence that the algo change https://www.google.se/amp/s/www.xda-developers.com/developers-huge-drop-new-installs-play-store-algorithm-changes/amp/) occurred just after the Kidoz issues. Personally I don't think Kidoz are any better or worse than other ad networks in terms of operational risk, they (and we) were just 'unlucky' that Googled reacted so strongly on the YouTube API issue.
