In each tab, you can insert corresponding advertisement codes and rename code block if you want. There are also options to choose one display option, block alignment, where do you want these ads visible, whether you need to enable manual insertion of this particular ad block etc. Altogether, for those who want to manage multiple advertisements from AdSense and other networks such as Amazon.
