2. Open your android XML file and add the following line in layout:

xmlns:ads=http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto

3. Add AdView in Layout:

<com.google.android.gms.ads.AdView
android:id="@+id/adView"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
ads:adSize="BANNER"
ads:adUnitId="YOUR_AD_UNIT_ID"
/> 

4. The Android XML file will look like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:ads="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
android:id="@+id/mainLayout"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
>
<com.google.android.gms.ads.AdView
android:id="@+id/adView"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_alignParentBottom="true"
android:layout_alignParentLeft="true"
ads:adSize="BANNER"
ads:adUnitId="Your_AD_UNIT_ID"
/>
</RelativeLayout>

5. Now open your Java file and initialize AdView Object in your Activity.

AdView ad=(AdView)findViewById(R.id.adView);

6. Load Ad from Google:

ad.loadAd(new AdRequest.Builder().build());

Now change AndroidManifest.xml file according to the code given in the end of the tutorial & run your project. Now install the application on your phone & check ads!

For Interstitial Ads:-

This Ad will be displayed on your complete phone screen.

1. Use the following code in your activity:

 InterstitialAd end_ad=new InterstitialAd(this);
end_ad.setAdUnitId(getResources().getString(Your_AD_UNIT_ID));
end_ad.loadAd(new AdRequest.Builder().build());

2. Show Ad if loaded:

if(end_ad.isLoaded())
{
end_ad.show();
}

Now change AndroidManifest.xml file according to the code given in the end of the tutorial & run your project. Now install the application on your phone & check ads!

Now change AndroidManifest.xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
package="com.example.Main_Activity"
android:versionCode="1"
android:versionName="1.0" >

<uses-sdk
android:minSdkVersion="9"
android:targetSdkVersion="18" />

<!-- Used to request banner and interstitial ads. -->
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />

<!-- Used to avoid sending an ad request if there is no connectivity. -->
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />

<application
android:allowBackup="true"
android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher"
android:label="@string/app_name"
android:theme="@style/AppTheme">

<meta-data
android:name="com.google.android.gms.version"
android:value="@integer/google_play_services_version" />

<activity
android:name="com.example.Main_Activity"
android:label="@string/app_name" >
<intent-filter>
<action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
</intent-filter>
</activity>

<!-- Activity required to show ad overlays. -->
<activity
android:name="com.google.android.gms.ads.AdActivity"
android:configChanges="keyboard|keyboardHidden|orientation|screenLayout|uiMode|screenSize|smallestScreenSize"/>
</application>
</manifest>

Both above examples are used in the following Android applications: Helper+ & Namaz Guide

Mostly apps use Admob Ads in Listview and show Ads when Loaded. Initially, I was confused that how can I add Ads after successfully loading and finally I got success and felt it was very easy. I added AdView widget at bottom of the parent layout & set visibility gone and use Listview widget in whole layout. After setting up XML file, I used below code in Activity:-

ad=(AdView)findViewById(R.id.adView);
ad.setVisibility(View.GONE);
ad.loadAd(new AdRequest.Builder().build());

ad.setAdListener(new AdListener() {
@Override
public void onAdLoaded() {
ad.setVisibility(View.VISIBLE);
}
});
