Hi, hope that everyone is having a great day!
This is my first post here, so I'm sorry if its not in the right place or its stupid to post but I'm just a newbie at this, however, my question is:
I got a beauty and health website, (WordPress) and I got a message at my Adsense saying this ("Earnings at risk - One or more of your sites does not have an ads.txt file. Fix this now to avoid severe impact to your revenue."), when I read about it over the internet it was something related to some ad sellers..etc? and I guess I have nothing to do with it? (correct me if i'm mistaken please) , so should I really added it to my website? and how will it help or how can it damage my earnings?

Hi alae63 and Welcome to WebmasterWorld [webmasterworld.com]

If you have an AdSense account where you got that message and if you have any ads on your wordpress site, then yes, you should have an ads.txt file on your site. It is just a tiny text file and AdSense tells you how to create the file and where to put it. Ordinarily it is uploaded to the root directory for your domain.

If you do a search here on WebmasterWorld for "ads.txt" you will find a lot of the basic information.
