Now you will see an overview of your adverstisement status.
„Operator Ads“ will show you the settings of your advertisement blocks. There you see if the operator (in this case „My-Guide.org“) places his own advertisement blocks.
„User Ads Active?“shows you the status of your own advertisement blocks.
„Your Actual Ratio“ shows you the ratio of „Operator to User“ Ads. E.g. in the picture you see a ratio of 1:1. So the operator ads alternates to the user ads in a equal ratio. Another example: If you see a ratio of 2:1 the operator ad will be placed two times for every placement of your own ad, etc…
If you deactivate your advertisement you will get a warning that your advertisement block is inactive. This should prevent you from accidentally disabling your ads.
At the bottom part of the „My-Guide AdManager“ you see the „Settings“ region for your adverstisement. There are five areas where you can place your own adverstisement blocks. Generelly these areas are „Header“, „Top“, „Content“, „Bottom“ and „Sidebar“. For every area you see a picture with a precise description.

You want to place adevertisement in the „Top-Section“ .
First copy your advertisement code (e.g Google Adsense) in the Top-Section field. Then activate your advertisement at the check mark „Active“ and press the „Save Settings“ Button. After the activation of your advertisement block you will see a change at the „User Ads Active?“ overview from „inactive“ to „active“. According to your ratio value your own advertisement will be placed.

Please pay attention that not every template has the five areas. There could be less areas where you can place advertisement blocks. In that case only adevertisement will be placed in existing areas.
