FALSE DISAPPROVAL : Destination URL not working

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Our ads keep getting disapproved due to "Destination URL is not working". (June 23, 2017)

 

It started 2 weeks ago. Every single change I make to my ads, it will get disapproved and the reason is "Destination URL not working".

 

So I contacted the Adwords team 4 times so far. Every time they apologize and go to their tech team and they approve it manually. Then again, the next day I make a change and same thing happens. This is really getting ridiculous.  They are still looking into this as we speak.  Is this bug affecting everyone or just our account?

Any help or clue is appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Alex

Hey Alex,

 

Got your query.

 

Your website is looking perfectly fine.

 

There is a technical issue going on for destination not working, which might causing the continuous disapproval.

 

Best,

Sudeep

It is 100% accessible. We are still having the same issue until today. The engineering team is working on it. That's what I heard from their staff. For now, they want me to report every single time so they can approve it manually. This is really ridiculous!

This is a frustrating one.  I have this happen to my clients on and off each year for different clients.  In my cases, it was never an issue with my client, it was some engineering tweak on Google's end.  After a few weeks, it just stopped all of a sudden each time.  Its a pain in the neck to have to contact reactive support each time, but my experience when it isn't your fault, google's engineers fix these issues without you doing anything in a week or 2

Im running into the same issue. Randomly 2 days ago, literally 30-40 of my ads were disapproved with this error. My website is working but does have one or two errors on it, is it possible Google updated something and now when indexing its stopping my ads from  running?

Super frustrating ....

There are serious bugs in Google Adwords system and apparently they are either very hard to fix or their team simply do not care. Here is why : 

 

1) I contacted their support team a few times and they said they will send this issue up to the technical team. However, every time i change any AD text, I will have to contact them to approve it manually. (Seriously?!)

 

2) I contacted dozens of times more and they told me eventually that there is a bug with the "Old accounts". And the best way to get rid of this issue is to sign up a new email and start the Adwords account all over again. 

 

Problem solved using "number 2" solution. So I guess you have no choice to do the same. 

Hope this helps!
