"Whitelisting" is the process by which ads are allowed to appear on a web page you visit. "Blacklisting" is how ads are blocked or hidden. Both whitelisting and blacklisting are accomplished by filter rules that tell an ad blocker how to recognize an ad. The filter lists that all ad blockers use are simply collections of several thousand filter rules. Filter lists can be used to whitelist or to blacklist.

There are several ways to manually whitelist a web page or site.
