Go to the Allow & Block Ads page on your AdSense account. This is the page where you’ll tell YouTube and Google what kind of ads you want and don’t want to show in front of your videos for various reasons.

Once you’re there, put in the URLs you no longer want to see on your videos. This would include the direct link to the video itself, the channel itself and the website URL.

Hey Ahmed,

That was really useful too know. I was not aware that you could block specific advertisers from showing on your YouTube video. But then I do not really work with ad sense, still it is very useful information to know.

I just have one follow up question, would an advertiser be able to see if they are blocked from a particular site?

Hey Clynton,

As far as I know , No you can't definitely know if some publisher blocks your ads, but you can guess that. If you find that you're restricted from targeting some specific placement and this placement is in the Google display network and shows other ads similar to your business, you can presume that you are probably blocked.
