Important Note for AdSense

If you are transitioning from AdSense to working with Freestar, it is very important that you include their information below the very bottom line of text on the file.

Here's how to get your AdSense info. So it'll look like this at the bottom of our ads.txt file:

google.com, pub-0000000000000000, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

The bolded zeros are placeholders for your actual account ID with AdSense, which you can get from your account login with them.
