Hi

 

I have adwords campaign , when i search for keywords i see my ads with competitors in SERP ,

but i have a problem , googleadservices.com  is filtered in my country and when i click on my ads i see , secure connection error

 

but my competitors ads run normaly and i see their website when i click on their ads ,

 

when i check their urls i see after click on ad my link goes to googleadservice.com/xxxxxx for tracking and because it is filtered domain i see error

but when i click on competitor ad it goes to https://www.google.com/aclk?sa=L&ai=xxxxxx   and it open website normally

 

how i can make my urls to open like my competitors ? what is the solution

Hi Reza, 

 

Certain countries - like Iran - are currently not available for targeting (a full list here: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/6163740?hl=en). 

 

You may need to try opening an account outside of Iran (perhaps with a VPN) although I cannot tell you what is legal and what is illegal so please do your research. 

 

Also I've heard that having https instead of http for your domain may help but i'm not sure. Let me know if either works!

my adwords account is with UK  billing information , my question is not about running campaigns but the final link and difference between my ads and competitors ,

 

their ads open normally but my ads need vpn and i explain it in my post

I would check to see if theirs are HTTPS and if yours is not (this might help explain the connection error).

 

Other than that, i suggest you escalate your issue with AdWords. It may be that your competitors are doing some Black Hat work if it is true that they're advertising successfully in a country that does not allow AdWords ads.

This is from the Firefox page, but perhaps your problem has something similar with this (outdated TLS mechanisms).
