What is an ads.txt file?
The use of ads.txt files is an initiative from the Interactive Advertising Bureau Tech Lab (IAB) to improve transparency in advertising. This initiative has been adopted by many of the large advertisement platforms, including Google Adsense.
Installing an ads.txt file is as simple as uploading a file named ads.txt to the root of the website containing information provided by the banner / advertisement platform of choice (EG: Google Adsense).
For more detailed information about the ads.txt specification, please see this page on the IAB website: https://iabtechlab.com/ads-txt/
