[Destination URL] Invalid HTTP Response Code

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I keep getting the error "[Destination URL] Invalid HTTP Response Code" when creating an ad for my application. The destination link is https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.dingerapps.doodlechains  As the link is on Google Play, how can there be an error? The application is not distributed to all countries but neither is the ad.

 

Cheers

Hi Ben E,

 

Looking at this how-to for App Ads, it looks like the URL you have quoted is the Package Name. When I clicked on it it also gave me an error. You'll need a viewable landing page for the Destination URL - have you launched the app yet? It oculd just be that it's not live?

Hi Kathleen,

Sorry, the link I had posted before got messed up because of the full stop at the end. I have changed it so that it works correctly now and is the exact same link I have as the destination url. Does the link work for you now? The application was launched today however it is live.

Cheers,
Ben

I am having the same issue and my URLs are fine. The URL has been active for years.

We are still having this same issue and have not heard back from Google. What can be done?

Hello Ed,

Request you to please elaborate on the issue here. Have your ads been disapproved for Invalid HTTP response code as well? In that case, please work with your webmaster and ensure the checks mentioned for the disapproval reason on the Help Center https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/6021546?hl=en&expand=192#fix are passed.

Thanks,
Shruti
