How to request use proxy URL

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Just set up first adwords campaign using a proxy landing page. Ads are disapproved because display URL and landing URL do not match. Who/how do I request a human to review and approve these ads? Landing page look and feel matches display URL website. Uses tracking phone number and contact form.

Hi

I am not entirely sure about what you want to say about "proxy URL" 

But according to adwords policy "The domain of your display URL must match the domain of your landing page URL (after any redirects)." 

I dont think there is any escaping that

Hope it helps

hey,

I would have to agree with Nik. You need to have the display and destinations URLs having the same domain names.
Also, Redirects used for tracking purposes are fine as long as the final landing page has the same domain as the display URL...
You can get more details on the link provided by Nik above.

Hello pjadv,

 

Just to follow what you referred above in your post, I will quote from the Google notes below:-

 

"We also provide exceptions in the case of a company, often an AdWords Authorized Reseller, using proxy pages. Proxy pages are exact copies of live, functioning websites used in place of the original site, for the purpose of isolating advertising traffic from all other website traffic."

 

So, are you an Adwords authorized Reseller, who want to use the proxy domain as destination URL?

 

Did you try to speak with Adwords support on this matter? Please note that the final call is from Google's end, so it's better to speak with them atleast once.

Hi reenu,

 

In your example, the AdWords reseller (the owner of calls.net) would have to apply for the exemption.  An individual advertiser using calls.net as a hosting service can't do this.

 

This exemption is intended for resellers who create a hosted web site for the advertiser and then set up an AdWords campaign for it.  It's not intended to let advertisers pretend they have a web site on their own domain (xyz.com) when in reality their web site is on a subdomain of a hosting company (xyz.hostingcompany.com).

 

Personally I wish we didn't have this exemption at all.  It's deceptive to users when the Display URL does not accurately reflect the final location the user will land on when clicking the ad.
