The Manage page appears.

2Click the Premium Services link under the Your Network header.

3Select the Add check box below the Control the Ads section.

A panel opens.

4If you want to run your own AdSense ads (or ads from any advertising network), paste the HTML code from your advertising network into the text box in the panel.

If you simply want to remove the ads from your network, don’t enter anything in the panel.

5Click the Go button at the bottom of the page.
