There are many plugins available to make AdMob ads work in your Cordova app. For an exhaustive list of AdMob plugins, go here >

You need to "add a third-party plugin" when using the XDK to add any of these plugins. If you know the "npm registry" name of the plugin you set the "Plugin Source" to "npm" -- if you know the git repo URL you set the "Plugin Source" to "Git repo" -- more details available in the docs > <

[quote:3uhz56jr]p.s. Once you have successfully configured your app to work with the AdMob plugin you choose to use, I highly recommend you export the project using the Cordova Build Package tool and start using PhoneGap Build or Cordova CLI, since the XDK build system will be retired at the end of June.
