Hi, I have a question about display URL vs. landing URL.

Hi, I have 2 questions about the display URL vs. landing URL. 

 

1. In this article http://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=175906&rd=2, 

What happens if

- Display URL: mysite1.example.com

- Landing URL: www.example.com/mysite1

 

OR 

- Dispaly URL: mysite1:example.com

- Landing URL: www.example.come/mysite2/

 

2. Does the display URL has to be a valid URL? For example, what if mysite1.example.com is not a valid URL. What happens in this case?

 

Thanks

the first option you provided will work: mysite1.example.com the other one I'm not sure will work as I've never tried it before but it looks like it's not going to work.

Hello lingchuan;

  • The second option would not work.
  • As for your other question : The display URL domain must match the destination URL domain. Thus, assuming that the destination URL domain is a valid one (as required), the outcome is that the display URL is a valid one.

I will say that - Both type of Display url will work.
I too ask this question and never got clear answers. I know many advertiser who are using this way for a long time.
