Invalid destination URL. To post text ad, edit the destination URL
recently my collegues ran into problem when destination URL stopped working from one night to another. They had some unposted ads within their Adwords account and while sending these ads(with destination URL) they were getting message: Invalid destination URL. To post text ad, edit the destination URL
What you should do while getting this error is to replace destination URL with Final URL within your Adwords Editor. Withdraw destination URL and paste this URL to Final URL located in URL options.
If you have multiple ads, then the best thing you can do in my opinion is to create export of your ads -> Move URLs from column destination URL to column Final URL, import it back to your adwords editor and then it should be alright.
All this will work if you do not use any tracking parameters with your ads. Otherwise you have to modify also other settings/columns.
Hope this might come handy to some people.
Re: Invalid destination URL. To post text ad, edit the destination URL
I found that if I selected all the ads in question then
1. Select > Cut the URL from 'destination URL'
2. Open " Url Options" tab
3. >Paste URl into 'final URL' field
I was able make the changes to multiple ads without the need to export/import.
