Exclamation Fan Filter !Help needed!

I want to reduce the amount of dust in my case I have 6 fans placed in various locations. I cut scotch pads to use as filters. Please tell me were to place the filters? Do I place it on the blowing side of the fan or the sucking side?

The side where the air comes in from.

If the fan is blowing in the computer, put the filter inside.
If its blowing outside, put it outside.

Remember, using filters is going to slow down airflow so monitor those temps closely.
