Ads.txt for Blogger and Squarespace Sites

Share

Here are the steps to set up Ads.txt for sites using Blogger or Squarespace.

For sites on Blogger:

Login to your SHE Media Dashboard, and go to your site settings, and click on Ad Sizes. Scroll down to the bottom and you’ll see a tab called Ads.txt which has a link where you can download your entire ads.txt file to your computer.

In another tab/window, log into your Blogger Dashboard on blogger.com. Select the blog you want to set up an Ads.txt file on. From the left, select Settings and then Search Preferences. At the bottom of the page, under Monetization – find Custom Ads.txt and click edit. Then Yes. Paste in the lines from the Ads.txt file you downloaded and click save.

You will have to check this from time to time and update these fields manually. As more providers adopt Ads.txt, these lines may change, and there is no way at the moment to automatically sync between our Ads.txt file and Blogger.

For sites on Squarespace:

Login to your SHE Media Dashboard, and go to your site settings, and click on Ad Sizes. Scroll down to the bottom and you’ll see a tab called Ads.txt which has a direct link to your Ads.txt file in option #2. Copy that URL.

In your Squarespace settings, navigate to Settings > Advanced > URL Mapping. What you’ll be doing is setting up a redirect so that it looks as though you’ve installed an Ads.txt file – but it’ll be pointing towards the link we’ve provided.

In the field, you’ll want to copy this to the bottom. (Note, paste the link with the Ads.txt file where the Xs are – it’ll look something like http://ads.blogherads.com/bh/0/00/00/0000/ads.txt – or it might be even shorter if you’ve been with the Partner Network for some time) Click the Save button. Because this will be pointing directly to our Ads.txt file, it will automatically reflect any changes we make to your Ads.txt file.

/ads.txt -> XXXXXXX 301
