Open it with notepad and add a line of information for each website you wish to block. Basically what happens is when that site you want blocked is added to the host file and someone attempts to enter that address into their browser it will loop them back to the address of the computers network card. The loop back address as it is called. One major advantage of this tool is it works for all browsers installed on the computer, including Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera Browser.
It is difficult to explain how to edit the host file in an article such as this one. I will refer you to the link in my signature for a point and click instructional video on how to edit the host file.
One of the most important things you can do when you are using this network to get more traffic to your site is to block out sites that are not making you a profit. One of the biggest mistakes people make when they are using the Content Network is they don’t do this and end up losing a lot of money in the process.
Why You Need To Block Out Sites & Get Less Visitors To Your Site:
When you setup your ads on the Content Network they take your keyword and figure out which sites on their network will be good sites to run your ads on.
Then they let your text ad run on those sites and you eventually get people to click on your ads and hopefully you make money from those visitors.
The problem is that Google is not perfect and they can do a bad job at figuring out which sites your ads should be running on. So if you are in a bigger market they will sometime run your ads on sites that have nothing to do with what you are trying to sell.
For example: If I am trying to get people to my site using keywords related to “traffic generation”, they can easily think that I am trying to attract people looking for information about “highway traffic.”
So what you need to do is run a report in your account and see all the sites that your ads are being run on and check them out.
Once you figure out the once that are not relevant to what you are promoting, you need to use the feature in your account that lets you block them out so you won’t get traffic from those sites any longer.
This is one of the easiest ways to massively increase your profits as you will stop getting visitors from sites that have nothing to do with what you are trying to sell.

According to the disciplinarians it is a right move. There is a popular school of thought supporting the move. Those who are directly linked with the noble profession of teaching might indulge in the thought procedure that in time of the running academic sessions if students are allowed to enjoy the facilities of the websites catering free and unlimited gaming through it then it is quite natural that their mind would be preoccupied with such things .
