Why does Google Adsense not recognize my ads.txt?

Post by Holger »

I do not understand this.
For some months now I have a warning in my Adsense-dashboard telling me that Adsense cannot find the ads.txt file on my server.
Well, it IS there.
So why do I get that warning?

Does anybody have the same problem?

I am guessing that you have looked at the information available but just in case not you may have missed this https://support.google.com/adsense/answ ... 0?hl=en-GB - don't know if it helps at all.

Common sense (pun intended) applies: does the file exist thru HTTP? Is it readible thru HTTP? Seeing it exist thru FTP means nothing. In other words: does a URL exist to access that file? If not you have your answer.
