Step-by-step guide to adding Google ads to website

Could someone give me a step-by-step guide on how to add Google ads to my site? There is no root directory to upload the ads.txt file to (as per Google Ads instructions) and I can’t seem to find answers anywhere else OR the answers are kind of vague. I need someone to explain it to me as if I’m a five year old.

Hi Lindria,

I happen to be going through this process now, and in the waiting for evaluation stage. It looks like the ads.txt may not be required, but I’ve added mine via a redirect to a file hosted on Google Drive as an initial test.

Ping me back in a week or two and I can let you know if the integration worked properly.
