Today’s tutorial is all about fixing a recent issue raised on Google Adsense Dashboard.
Recently I logged in to my Google Adsense Dashboard and found an issue popped up there like – “Earnings at risk – One or more of your sites does not have an ads.txt file. Fix this now to avoid severe impact to your revenue.”
It means, if you don’t put that file on your website after right configuration with your publisher ID, then you will start losing earnings.
So, how to fix this?
Here are the steps to follow:
Step 01: Log in to your Google Adsense Account and copy your Publisher ID.
Step 02: Replace the red portion of the line with your publisher ID:
google.com, pub-0000000000000000, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0
Step 03: Save this line in a .txt file.
Step 04: Upload the .txt file to the public_html directory (home) of your website on your cPanel (or any other hosting you use). You can also use a WordPress plugin to ease this process. Install this plugin and paste your code inside the plugin settings.
Step 05: Done! Go and click to this link to see whether ads.txt successfully installed or not and what other sites need to fix soon.
