[Q] Libgdx and Admob

Hello everybody,

I am a new developer and started with Libgdx to make a simple game (Flappy Bird) an understand everything.
My English is not the best but I could understand this tutorial () and make my "own" Flappy Bird.
To complete the tutorial I wanted to show some ads in the app but it didn't work. I used the ads from admob.
Can someone explain me how I can show ads? I think libgdx is the problem but I don't know what I did wrong.

I found this code but it doesn't work and I am getting a few errors: (Is ist correct and am I right if I do in the Android folder a new class
called BannerExample and put this code in it?


import com.google.ads.*;

public class BannerExample extends Activity {
private AdView adView;

public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

// Create the adView
adView = new AdView(this, AdSize.BANNER, MY_AD_UNIT_ID);

// Lookup your LinearLayout assuming it's been given
// the attribute android:id="@+id/mainLayout"
LinearLayout layout = (LinearLayout)findViewById(R.id.mainLayout);

// Add the adView to it

// Initiate a generic request to load it with an ad
adView.loadAd(new AdRequest());

public void onDestroy() {
if (adView != null) {

PS: Sorry for my bad English!
