Using phonegap build for ionic and admob

i have setup a demo app here on github:

and the app is on phonegap build here :

the issue that i am having is that the app works fine when i use the
ionic CLI to build my app. the ads form admob show up correctly. no issues whatsoever

But when i use the phonegap build to build my app the ads dont show up…

i am using the google abmob pro plugin by floatinhotpot

the plugin is in the cordova registry

What seems to be the issue here?

does phonegap build support building for ionic apps?
