AdMob SDK For Windows 8 – Incompatible Assembly Error

I was recently working on my Windows Phone 8 App for Fuelizer and I came across the following error when I tried to import the AdMob SDK:

A reference to a higher version or incompatible assembly cannot be added to the project.

error

After spending almost an hour trying to determine what versions were incompatible, the solution was much easier that anticipated. To resolve this issue you simply need to unblock the assembly. The assembly became blocked since it was zipped up. After unblocking the assembly as shown below, I was able to add the reference to GoogleAds.dll successfully.
