Hello,
I was wondering if google allows to promote affiliate links in adwords? These links usually redirect the user in order to track the click so I'm not sure if this violates the policy..

Thanks!

Hello @Roy G,

The display URL must match the destination URL after all redirects.

I would not advise to promote a landing page (e.g.  an affiliate  destination URL in YOUR ad) which you have no control over its content.

If the landing page is in violation, and you  cannot fix it (e.g. Because you, as an affiliate do not own it), you will  be suspended until fixed. And if can't be fixed, the suspension is for good...

Best practice: always promote landing pages which you have control over the content.
