Google ads verification

Hi all, 

To gain back my Google Ads account I'm asked by Google Support to ad a txt file to my domain to prove I'm the owner. 

I've followed the tips given in other posts on this forum and have done the following:

- upload a file called Google-ads.txt to shopify

- redirect URL to

After letting Google know I've done what they've asked they let me know I have not done it correct. They are redirected to the CDN but they tell me the domain has to be mydomain.

As far as I know I'm not able to do as they asked through Shopify. Somebody here who has fixed this before? 

Thanks in advance,

According to what you wrote, I assume you meant to authorize the Merchant Center. If you want to do it by yourself, I think Google Tag Manager is the easiest approach.

Nevertheless, I would recommend you to use an app like AdScale to run your Google Search & Shopping campaigns.. It uses AI to automatically create and optimize your ads on Google. It also updates your audience targeting and constantly improves as more data is collected.


You can see how it works in this video:
