Google makes Ads.txt mandatory in October 2017

6 October 2017

Google spokespeople have just announced they will no longer perform any further ad transactions without ads.txt authorization starting this month. Admixer team learned it first-hand at the Think Partner conference at Google Dublin HQ.

It’s a major announcement. Google promises to stop buying from publishers, that haven’t integrated ads.txt yet, starting this October.

They will also push for more control on the sell side. If you can’t sell unauthorized inventory, you cannot buy it. AdX and AdSense will stop selling inventory from publishers with no ads.txt integration starting this quarter. This means, even if your traffic is completely valid, you still have to cover the authorization.

Admixer learned this information at the official presentation of the company. Right now, we are participating at networking taking place at Google EMEA Headquarters.
