    You should bring that issue up with your DNS provider.

    I did the 301 redirect last time in the DNS settings without the www. When I went to look at it just now it had the www back. So I removed it, i'll see what happens

    The files exist. The error message doesn't tell us how to fix the issue. Someone needs to contact Google and ask them how to fix the issue. I don't have an Adsense account with Google so I cannot contact them about it.

    I do know that your redirect has to preserve the base domain. This is your domain without any sub-domain such as www. And it must be a 301 redirect at the DNS level. If you're making the redirect in cPanel or with .htaccess on some hosting provider, it is too late and it will fail. If you do have webhosting where you can redirect via cPanel or an .htaccess file, then you should just put the ads.txt on that site with the DNS for your base domain pointing to it.

    Create an ads.txt file for 1 site



    expand_lessTo prevent severe impact on revenue, download an ads.txt file then upload the file to the root level domain of each site:
    • rockingindians.in
    It may take a few days for changes to update. If you’re using another ad network, remember to add the network to the ads.txt file. See the ads.txt guide for more details.

    DOWNLOAD

    Well what I put in there did not work, so back went the original code in the DNS txt. I'm lost and still have the error message.

    Carrfixrvintagefordforum.com/ads.txt
    This is the URL that google will be checking for the file. Not any of you sub-domains like www.

    Carrfixr I'm seeing your ads code on both www.vintagefordforum.com/ads.txt and vintagefordforum.com/ads.txt

    It wasn't on both yesterday.

I can always revert that dns--txt code back if it doesn't work and try something else
    All my txt boxes were empty of code but there where a few boxes which I assumed was for when you needed to add verification for different websites.

    Reading up on this I'm sure it is what they are used for: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/TXT_record if you look at examples it includes Google site verification so I guess adsense verification should be the same

    good luck

    I don't know if this will help you Carrfixr but I have another website, nothing to do with vBulletin, it is just a Blogger blog site I use to share my crafts.

    I have had the same problem, AdSense kept giving the fix warning.

    On www the .ads.txt code showed but not on https that just redirected to my home page

    So, on the domain DNS settings I put the code in the txt record option and after a few hours the code showed on both www and https and the fix warning is gone

    now I'm no expert and it wouldn't have worried me too much had it all gone wrong and messed up my site, it's not that important.

    But your site is so PLEASE do your research before taking my route, it's only a suggestion. I wouldn't want your site messed up
