Implement ads.txt to boost your ad revenue

Last Update: April 17, 2019

Good evening/morning to everyone in the community of WA. I need your help on how to update ads.txt on a website.

I applied to Media.net and this is what it requires to be done. This is the statement from Media.net:

"We strongly recommend that you implement ads.txt on your website at the earliest to avoid losing out on advertiser spend and therefore, revenue.

Update your ads.txt by adding the lines of code below to your ads.txt file exactly as is:"


media.net, 8CUU7ZX41, DIRECT

rubiconproject.com, 19398, DIRECT, 0bfd66d529a55807

rubiconproject.com, 19398, RESELLER, 0bfd66d529a55807

pubmatic.com, 157599, DIRECT, 5d62403b186f2ace

pubmatic.com, 157599, RESELLER, 5d62403b186f2ace

openx.com, 537100188, RESELLER, 6a698e2ec38604c6

google.com, pub-7439041255533808, RESELLER, f08c47fec0942fa0

districtm.io, 100600, DIRECT

rubiconproject.com, 17054, RESELLER

pubmatic.com, 156181, RESELLER

spotx.tv, 211156, RESELLER, 7842df1d2fe2db34

Here is the step to follow:

For WordPress sites:

  1. Install the Ads.txt Manager Plugin in your Wordpress admin console
  2. Add the data for domain name of the advertiser, seller account ID, type of relationship (DIRECT or RESELLER), and certification authority ID (optional) into the plugin. Our provider IDs are in the box above.

It's clear but to me it's still complicated. I might be doing something that makes my head ache.

Thanks for the support.

Hello, Have a look at a plugin called Ad Inserter. It is free. Google and all advertising. can be pasted easy in to your website.
Add your code google.com, pub-0000000000000,DIRECT, f08c47fee0942fa0
Go to Google AdSense accounts- and get your( pub number)
Hope this helps.

Yes, being approved in the program does not mean everything is well. There are details such as plugins that should be installed and this ads.txt be added. Let's hear from the community if somebody had already tried this.

Hi Jimmy,

Did you start placing ads on your site? I did and I didn't implement ads.txt yet as I wanted to try without necessarily installing a plug in.

Just like any other HTML, just copy and paste the ad codes sent to you by email anywhere on your site. However, should you want to customize the colors and sizes, you can do so by logging into your Media.Net Dashboard.

I just started today and I am excited to see how things will work out. I will be sharing with the community the details anytime this week.

I suggest you try it out.

Aren't they in your email inbox? Just follow the link and log into Media dot net dashboard with your email add and then enter a new password.

Oh, by the way, I'm having issues with the ads I placed on my site. Although they appear to be related to my niche, when one clicks on any of them, they are led to another ad listings which are off-topic. Kind of deceptive, you know. So I immediately removed them.

Ok, I'll try to see if I will be receiving the same it's not beneficial to us but they just want to increase their email marketing.
On my email there's no way I can change my password and I am wondering because all other programs have their own way. When I change my password I provided my email they say it's sent to my email but I don't receive any message.

Maybe it's in your spam or promotion email folder.

I emailed my account manager in regards to the irrelevant ads and was told that it usually takes 2 weeks for relevant ad topics to set in.

Thanks, could you provide me the link for contact?

I'm not sure you can contact him because each publisher is given their own account manager. Should you want to reach out to them, you can always email them via pubsupport@media.net.
