destination url is not being updated
I added a path to my ads (from example.com to example.com/path)
Underneath the ad the url is correct (example.com/path), but when clicking on the ad the user is being directed to the homepage (example.com).
The problem is not with my website, I checked the link in the ad and it goes to the homepage.
How can I fix that?
Re: destination url is not being updated
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 (example.com/path). 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 (example.com).
You need to update the Final URL of your ads to go to example.com/path. 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: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/6246601?hl=en&ref_topic=3119123
Hope that helps,
