On a blogger group, some friends dropped something on this but I just got to ignore it cos I felt it had nothing to do with me not until some fellow blogger colleagues came around asking me to help them solve the issue of adding AdSense ads.txt for blogger. I love blogging challenges and I could not help but make some research on how to fix and add the AdSense ads.txt publisher ID on blogger dashboard.
If you know you’ve been affected by this and your adsense ads are no longer displaying on your blog, just stay calm as I’ve gotten a solution to this.
The “ADS.TXT” (Authorized Digital Seller) is a list made by a website owner that contains publisher accounts and the names of ads networks that the publisher has authorized to show ads on his/her website. Therefore with the AdSense ads.txt feature, adverts will not be displayed on unauthorized websites.
Follow the guide below to learn how to implement Ads.txt on your blogger blog:
1. Open/Login to your Blogger Dashboard
2. Select the blog which has the issues of the AdSense ads.txt missing file
3. Click on Settings
4. Click on Search Preferences
5. You will see a new option called Monetization which would be found disabled.
7. Open your Adsense dashboard, you should see a red notification at the top of your dashboard telling you that Earnings at risk – One or more of your ads.txt files doesn’t contain your AdSense publisher ID. Fix this now to avoid severe impact on your revenue.
8. Now click on the action button
9. AdSense will automatically generate an Adt.txt file for you, now copy the code given to you.
10. Paste the copied code into the custom ads.txt under monetization on your blogger dashboard.
11. Now click on save and wait for 12 to 24 hours for the changes to take place, and holla your ads will be back.
