    Hello, I have received such information from ADMob
    We are pleased to announce that August 8, 2019, AdMob will start supporting the app-ads.txt file security for publishers who have placed this file in their developer domain.

    What is it and do I need to take any action?

    If Marketing Url is empty then AdMob can't find url.
    I also have problem with some apps, with empty Marketing Url.
    This need to be tested, but worth to try.

    To change the marketing url, we have to submit a new build. omg what a silly thing. What if we dont use the txt file ?

    Use of app-ads.txt is not mandatory, but is highly recommended, especially if you are concerned that others may be spoofing your app.

    Yep. I have just submitted updates for app, only reason is to add marketing url.
    I will report my findings and connection between marketing url and admob domain for app.

    just wondering... if they are spoofing your app aren't they adding the same file or refering to the same url aswell? so what's the point?

    Just to confirm my findings.
    Marketing URL is URL for AdMob app-ads.txt file.
    After changing URL on Apple Store, you need to wait at least 4 days for AdMob to crawl it.

    I have changed the marketing url of the apps 24 hours ago but admob console doesnt even show the url yet ? by 4 days to crawl you mean the urls take 4 days to appear or 4 days to status to go green ?

    After Apple approve your app, at least 4 days need to pass for AdMob to crawl and show your URL, for some app after 8 days in my case.
    If URL and app-ads.txt are correct, it will appear green in same time when crawl occur.
