Landing page on another site with main site URL on ad?

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

Is it possible to have the ad send the user to a Landing Page that is not

on the main URL but still have the main URL show on the ad itself?

 

URL shown in ad:

Ex: http://mainwebsite.com/

 

Ad is clicked:
Ex: http://urlLandingPage.com/test1

 

This is because I do not have the main website backend html files

as it's hosted by another company for business reasons and having

them add new landing pages would cost $99 per landing page when

I could do it myself in 10 minutes.

 

EDIT: It's all legitimate. Dating website I own.

 

Cheers,

David

Hi David,

 

You can't have display URL and destination page URL domains different.


As per the Google adwords policy, display url must match the destination page URL.

 

"Match the domain of your ad's display URL

  • Your landing page's domain must match the domain of the display URL in your ad. For example, if the website that you're advertising is using the domain "example.com," your ad's display URL must also contain "example.com.""
