Ads.txt Aggregation

IAB Tech Lab is now offering access to an aggregation of Ads.txt files published around the internet.  

What is it?

  • The Ads.txt Aggregation is the result of daily, internet-wide crawls of ads.txt files.  We do our best to crawl all domains.  
  • The aggregation is provided as a wholesale replacement to managing your own crawler.  You may choose to use IAB Tech Lab’s aggregation to supplement your own research.  

How much is it?

  • The aggregation is available to IAB Tech Lab members for an annual fee of $5,000, and to non-members for an annual fee of $10,000. 
  • The subscription renews on the calendar year, and access is prorated at time of joining.  
  • We provide access within 72 hours of list invoicing request. Invoice is Net 30.
