How can I turn off my competitor ads on my YouTube channel?
I want to filter out competitor ads from my YouTube videos and after video runs take out the default screen. I am helping my competition. Is there a way to do this?
From the YouTube help page titled 'Adding sites to a filter list':
As a YouTube content partner, you can filter specific AdSense advertiser domains appearing next to your YouTube videos.
Here's how to filter a specific AdSense advertiser domain:
Sign in to your Adsense account.
On the AdSense Setup tab , click the Competitive Ad Filter link.
Click on the "AdSense for Content Host" subtab halfway down the page.
In the text box, enter the domains that you want to block from AdSense ads.
Enter URL that is displayed on the ad for that website. Enter one URL per line. You can add up to 500 URLs.
Click "Save Changes" to add these sites to your competitive ad filter.
Changes to your filter list should be reflected on your site within 30 minutes.
