Benefits of verifying your website
To simplify the verification process for the advertiser, and to give the publisher the opportunity to promote their website as trustworthy – we have created a process to verify domain ownership. Through the process you can get your website marked as trusted in the Listing Database.
There are many domain ownership verification options for website owners and developers. The benefits include:
- your websites will be marked as trusted in the Listings Database,
- you will promote your listings as they have been verified by the Administrator,
- advertisers can filter through trusted websites,
- it can increase the interest in your offers.
How to get the TRUSTED website designation?
To receive the TRUSTED website designation in the listings database, complete either automatic or manual verification of domain ownership.
If your website meets one of the following conditions, it will be marked as trusted automatically.
