“Sellers.json is an IAB Tech Lab standard that increases transparency in the ads ecosystem and helps to combat fraud. Sellers.json works through a publicly available file of seller information. Publishers can elect to share their individual name or business name (depending on their AdSense account type) in the file. This gives advertisers a reliable way to discover and verify the identity of publishers.
We encourage you to make your information transparent and allow your individual or business name to be listed. This will help advertisers to verify your inventory. If your information isn’t made transparent, advertisers won’t be able to see your name, which might impact your revenue.”
