Hello,

Your display and destination Top level domain must be same:

Display URL : DailySteeze.com
Destination URL: http://dailysteeze.com/kdrew-remix-of-gotyes-somebody-that-i-used-to-know/

dailysteeze.com(top level domain) should be same.

Thanks

Hi Szangomango,

Neha is absolutely correct but I have one thought.

No idea if this is relevant or not...

I've heard of similar problems and have found that it can be the way the domain is being entered. Sometimes the "http://" is assumed when creating ads. Try entering your domains without the "http://" and see if that helps.

Hey Szangomango,

 

To add to the above discussion, sometimes there might be a redirect for our pages. In that case, your display URL needs to specify the domain of the final page.

 

Thought maybe this was the case. Hope this helps.
