- Now Click on File manager, after clicking on File Manager You’ll be redirected to a new window where all your files will be opened.

I already stated that ads.txt should be open to the public. Open your browser and go to http://your-domain-name/ads.txt to double-check the upload. In the case of my website, the outcome can be found at https://www.indhinditech.com/ads.txt. It’s worth mentioning that the file should be accessible via both HTTP and https.
Google may take a few days to notice the change after successfully submitting the ads.txt file. The error will persist until then. Follow the instructions below if you want to resolve a problem in a single day.
