Inaccurate Display URL - Can't Figure Out Why

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,
I'm setting up some ads but keep seeing my ads are being disapproved because of an "Inaccurate Display URL". However, I've read all the policies and guidelines on this subject at https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/175906?hl=en&rd=1# and I don't see why my ads are not in compliance.

The Display URL I am using:

www.ampmservice.com

 


The Destination URL I am sending clicks to:

www.ampmservice.com/solutions/retail/pos-software/storedynamics/

 

 

The destination URL does not redirect to any other domain. I can't seem to figure out why this keeps getting disapproved, as I've manually re-typed the display URL a dozen times just to make sure I'm not making any errors.

Hi Andre,

I just clicked your Domain and it sent me here: http://www.ampmsystems.com/ - Clicked the Destination URL and it landed me here: http://www.ampmsystems.com/solutions/retail/pos-software/storedynamics/

There is definitely a redirect in there. Systems vs Service

Try using the final URL's and see if that helps.

Hi Tommy,
Thanks for checking that out. Turns out, there was a redirect in place but only for US-based IP addresses. I couldn't see that as I'm in Canada, and even though we were only targeting traffic in Canada, AdWords still denied this. Anyway, we got it sorted out now. Good to know.
