Problems with Adwords when using split testing in my landing page builder

Dear Adwords Community,

 

I hope this is the right category to post about this.

 

I wondered if anyone can help me with an issue I have with Adwords when I set up "Split Testing" in my landing page builder (Leadpages) account. I somehow got this error message from Adwords:

 

Destination mismatch: The final URL that you entered for your ad uses a
different domain than your landing page (the website where people actually
end up). Your final URL can redirect only to URLs within the same domain.
To get your ad running, make sure that all redirects after your final URL
{FILLIN final url} remain on the domain {FILLIN final url domain}. See the
policy at https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/6368661#672

 

However, there should not really be an issue. In my landing page builder (Leadpages) it says that if someone visits a certain URL 50 % of the people will see Variation A of the page and 50 % will see Variation B.

 

So why does Adwords not allow this and what could I do about this?

 

I appreciate all your help. Thank you very much.

Hi @Julien W,

 

Regardless of split testing or not, any URL must match the domain name of the campaign. So if I had google.com as my domain, I would split test by using google.com/test-1 and google.com/test-2. The pages change but the domain does not. I can have all of the pages I wish to use as long as the domain stays the same. 

 

Kind Regards,

 

James
