Help Centre for Publishers - Why do I have to verify my ad space?

To verify that you are the owner of the ad space, we have implemented a site verification mechanism.

Verifying your site is possible once you have successfully added an ad space to the Ad Spaces tab on your publisher profile. In the top right hand corner of each listed ad space you will find the icon. If you click this, you open the verification window.

From here you have a 'Primary' and an 'Alternative' method of verification:

1. Verify By Meta Tag - Primary Method

In the window you can find the meta tag code snippet that our system will look for in order to verify your site. All you have to do is copy and paste this snippet into the head section of the index file at the URL you're verifying.

2. Verify by HTML file - Alternative Method

The second method simply requires you to create a html page with the file name provided for you in the verification window. This file needs to be added to the root directory of your website.

NOTE: This method is only suitable for publishers who have access to the root directory of their site. It will not work with subdirectories or sub-domains.

Once you have done this, click the Verify Site button and your site will be verified.
