Since cordova-plugin-admobpro has disabled its issues page, and the old issues are no longer accessible, including those complaining revenue lost.

This issue is created for #351 to allow people to share their experience and collect the missing records.

Here are the documents (issues) I saved before he closed the issues.

More cost effective to get a commercial license if high traffic · Issue #470 · floatinghotpot_cordova-admob-pro.pdf
Not only 2% of Sharing ad traffic_ · Issue #450 · floatinghotpot_cordova-admob-pro.pdf
Steal 30% of your ad! · Issue #544 · floatinghotpot_cordova-admob-pro.pdf

As you can see multiple users complain about 30%. I saw my self the network requests even after a licence:

2017-12-10

as you can see r is 30
and his library uses r to calculate adlicRate which controls when ads are shown:

There's also this line that proves that its not 2%

I don't know Java but from my testing Random returns from 0 to 100, so that code includes 0, 1, 2, 3 (becase <= 3) isn't that 4%?

Inspect the code yourself from the "copy" left behind before he removed the repo:
https://unpkg.com/cordova-plugin-extension@1.5.4/src/android/cordova-generic-ad.jar

Lastly: Use some network request analyzer like Charles Proxy and see how much r is for you....

@rodrigograca31 I did a similar research and summarized in https://admob-plus.github.io/blog/2018/08/05/how-cordova-plugin-admobpro-works.html

Thank you for PDFs, I am going post them as images for easy reading.

I have been using admob pro for years!
Did a quick check for March, by comparing the admob impressions versus the screen views tracked on google analytics, the missing impressions is about 6% for me.
