    I think that MGID might accept this type of site, but you have to find out, I didn't work with MP3 download sites

    btw it looks like a scan of ads.txt to what is showing there the most. because many here aren't networks more tech providers

    Ads.txt can be found by adding ads.txt at the end of the domain name.
    This is a list of ad networks/providers that publishers use in their ads.txt, with publisher count per each network

    Ads.txt is a simple text file that has nothing to do with traffic directly, it's only to show what networks sites working/authorized with. The idea behind it is to fight fraud - I suggest to google for ads.txt initiative and read more if that's interesting to you.

    yeah i know this part very well.
    the thing is that if you are not on these ads.txt you are not allowed to resell the traffic to your campaigns

    for example if I want to buy msn.com and resell to ironsource and i'm not on the ads.txt of msn.com I can be exposed to high chargebacks and not receive my money :(

    BTW there is something more hard core that will get into business soon its ADS.Cert

    If you talking about direct sales - there's no need for ads.txt, if you work with/through an ad network - rep will tell you how to update your ads.txt.

    Thanks! Lately, I mostly hear about AdSense and Media.net, so decided this would be helpful for those looking to try new ad networks, as well as see their authority/how many publishers they have.

    media.net is a great network to take place among other networks in ad stack, but not as a single network
    thanks for noting on number 89, I will update that
