Hi Jonathan,


I believe that your issue is regarding the difference between display URLs vs destination URLs. The display URL gives the user an idea of where they will land when they click your ad. This is the URL that displays under your ad ( However, the display URL is not the actual URL that the user is taken too. That is why it can be different than the actual landing page (


You need to update the Final URL of your ads to go to If the keywords in the ad group have URLs then they will need to have their final URL updated as well. Here's a useful article explaining the difference between display and destination URLs:


Hope that helps,
