If your ads.txt not working and you’d received a message 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” quickly fix it to avoid problem with your Adsense Account.
We are know how Google Adsense works and still paying. Because for you to be on this page, you should have applied for AdSense account. To cut my long story short. Just before i went to bed yesterday night, my instinct told me to check my Adsense today’s earning, which i did.
To my surprise, got a RED bar (notification) at the top of my Adsense app. saying “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” I was like wtf!
I had to contact a friend of mine to inform him my ads txt not working. He never had an idea of how to solve it, so this gave me a sleepless night before i could solve it. Funny enough it wasn’t hard to resolve, i did it within 2hours.
