Hi, are domain names allowed in the body of search text ads?

Is there a way to tell if its being inserted by google rather than being say on the 2nd line of the text ad and being moved to the headline area?

Thanks
Whims

Hi Whims;

The Policy is clear on that:

>>The display URL field can't be used as another line of ad text.

So; always when you see a domain URL in the headline it - is inserted by Google (i.e. "When there's enough space, we may also add your website's domain to your ad's headline...")

Gday :-)

Yeap, will be there with bells on!
(I was at the 2011 one too but was sick with some flu type thing so pretty much kept to myself as much as possible. I know sharing is caring, however I didn't think that would apply to my buggy germs lol :-) )
