Hashtags in Destination URLs

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello all!

 

Does anyone know if there are any issues with using a hastag, i.e. #, in a destination URL? Another search marketer I have spoken with says they are having issues with their ads being disapproved if they use a # in their destination URL.

 

I want to know if this is true but I can't find anything mentioning it online.

 

Thanks,

Louise

Hello Louise,

The only thing I found in the Adwords Help talking about an anchor is :
Each sitelink must point to different content: Links to anchors or fragment identifiers on the same page count as the same page.

And related to Adwords-Anaytics :

If your destination URL contains a hash '#' symbol (sometimes called 'anchor'), then the gclid parameter should be appended before the anchor (#) like so: http://www.example.com/?parameter=1&gclid=TeSter-123#bookmark.

Further I could found nothing about hashtags in destination URLs.

Did they use the anchor with the right syntax?
Did they use it in the display URL?, maybe that gives a problem.
