Fix AdSense earning at risk ads.txt
Have you been having the same issues with me over some weeks now? Here am going to show you how I successfully solved my AdSense earning at risk error notification.
Follow my step to step guide to add an ads.txt file to your Hosting Cpanel successfully. But before I start, let’s look into knowing what ads.txt is all about.
According to Google AdSense Support Team
“Authorized digital sellers,” or “ads.txt,” is an initiative of IAB to improve transparency in programmatic advertising. Publishers can create their ads.txt files to identify who is authorized to sell their inventory. The files are publicly available and can be crawlable by buyers, third-party vendors, and exchanges.”
That is to say; It can help buyers identify counterfeit inventory and help us get more expense for advertisers who could have turned into counterfeit inventory…
