Ads.txt Implementation Guide

The following is a step by step guide for implementing the ads.txt file from Disqus for your site:

  1. If you already have an ads.txt file implemented for your site, simply download the Disqus ads.txt file at adstxt.disqus.net to get the latest and add to your existing ads.txt file.
  2. If you do not yet have an ads.txt file implemented:
  • Copy/paste or download the Disqus ads.txt file at adstxt.disqus.net
  • Make sure this is a .txt file and name it ads.txt.
  • Post the ads.txt file to the root directory of your domain's server. The file can be accessible via HTTP or HTTPS but must be located under a standard relative path: "ads.txt". The HTTP request header must contain "Content-Type: text/plain".
  1. Sample lines from Disqus’ ads.txt file:

rubiconproject.com, 13380, RESELLER, 0bfd66d529a55807indexexchange.com, 185073, RESELLER, 50b1c356f2c5c8fcopenx.com, 537133236, DIRECT, 6a698e2ec38604c6google.com, pub-6650322601660058, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0adtech.com, 10383, RESELLER

Continue to update your file by going to adstxt.disqus.net monthly to make sure you have the latest file with all Disqus ad providers.
