Amazon and Ebay Text Ads

I am interested in setting up an adwords account for a skateboard i am selling on ebay.  Are there any issues that I should be aware of before I set this up.  Would I just use the url of the skateboard on ebay as the landing url? Ive tried in the past and some of my ads got disapproved for something about a Robots.txt file.


Thanks, Gary

Hi Gary,


The most common issue with ebay ads and robot.txt files is that you may see this message:


A robots.txt file is blocking us from downloading your data feed. Please make sure the user-agents "Googlebot" and "AdsBot-Google" are not being blocked from the directory containing your feed.


In order for us to access your site and images, ensure that your robots.txt file allows user-agents "Googlebot", "AdsBot-Google" and "Googlebot-Image" to crawl your site. You can do this by adding the following lines to your robots.txt file:

User-agent: Googlebot

User-agent: AdsBot-Google

User-agent: Googlebot-Image


Hope that helps,
