Add your developer website in your app store listing

A developer website lets your users learn more about your apps and other content. It’s also how the app-ads.txt standard establishes who owns an app. Your developer website must be linked in your store listings in Google Play or the App Store in order for AdMob and other ad platforms to establish your app’s ownership.

To add your developer website in your app store listing:

For Google Play: Add the website URL in the contact information of your app listing:
Solo mode:
1. Sign in to your Play Console .
2. Select your app.
3. On the left menu, click Store presence > Store listing.
4. Scroll to Contact Details.
5. Add your website URL in the developer website URL field.

GoodBarber takes care:
Fill in your website URL during the process of publication of your app, our team will take care of adding it to your store listing.

For Apple App Store:
Solo mode:
1. Sign in to App Store Connect
2. Select your app.
3. Add your website URL in the marketing URL field of your store listing. 

GoodBarber takes care:
Fill in your website URL during the process of publication of your app, our team will take care of adding it to your store listing.
