Final URL

Hi,

Excuse if I use wrong terminology, I'm trying to understand the change from destination to final URL

 

All my ads redirect using a different domain I've been told and change almost daily with no real common theme in the link text

 

I have the display URL www.ao.com

My final URL is www.ao.com

 

My link for an example ad is

 

http://ecs-uk.kelkoo.co.uk/ctl/go/sitesearchGo?.ts=1435592508042&.sig=tmVwakt5FEV9u7dFMiqZ43An520-&o...

 

What do I do? Do I need to put anything in the tracking template? Any help appreciated

Hi Hussain,

 

I'm not sure I fully understand the issue you are experiencing, however, I find that these guidelines outline the best practices for most scenarios. Failing that, the detailed URL migration guide can be found here.

Today I seem to be experiencing a lot of This ad has been disapproved. Final URL redirects to a different domain.

My display URL and destination URL is of www.ao.com (but this happening with several domains)

The affiliate link I use is http://ecs-uk.kelkoo.co.uk/ctl/go/sitesearchGo?.ts=1435592508042&.sig=tmVwakt5FEV9u7dFMiqZ43An520-&o...

I've been told this is a domain redirect so I shouldn't need a tracking template. I'm also being told this is a tracking code. Totally confused

Hussain, can you try putting your affiliate link as your "Final URL" without using a tracking template and see if that works? There are only certain scenarios for which a tracking template is needed and it seems like you may not have to use it, which would simplify things for you I believe.

 

Hope this helps!

Hi Amy,

Thanks, I had been trying that but still get Final URL redirects to a different domain. I'm sure I dont need tracking templates, some ads get approved some don't (and I'm talking same domain/affiliate links)

Currently seems unable to add any new links
