I'm in an affiliated marketing program, do not technically have my own site, and I'm having trouble with destination and display URLs. I created several text ads only to have them removed due to entering my URLs incorrectly. Try as I might, having only the affiliated site URL and product URL, nothing I did would repair the mix-up. I switched them, I logged off my account, I restarted my computer, and even turned it off and let it set for a bit. I'm a newbie. Please help
Re: Entering URLs
Welcome to the forum
Honestly I don't have much of the experience dealing with affiliate ads, but I would strongly encourage you to go through the Google's affiliate auction policy and What should you know as an affiliate advertiser?
Hope that helps somewhere!
Keep in mind that the Display URL should match the domain name of the site the searcher sees in their browser after clicking on the ad, after any redirects. The Destination URL for affiliates usually does involve redirects to other domains, for tracking purposes. Ask your affiliate company for clarification.
