What is Ads.Txt
Authorized Digital Sellers otherwise known as Ads.txt is an empowerment by Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) which its sole purpose is to make sure your Ad is sold only to sellers which has been identified as Authorized; Example of such sellers are Google Adsense, Media.net and more.
Creating an Ads.txt file enables you to have control over who is allowed and who is not allowed to sell ads on your website this thus helps prevent Ad fraud and counterfeit inventory from being presented to the advertiser, if you are adding multiple Advertisers then you need to include a separate line in the file for each authorized seller, however each line in a publisher’s ads.txt list requires three pieces of data (plus a fourth optional field) separated by comma.
