How to set Visibile Display URL for Display Ads for branding

Collaborator ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

 

When I create Display Ads with the Ad Gallery or "Image Ad" feature (automatically created Image ad or Uploaded ones) , I have an option to set the "Display URL" but in the preview tool for the Ad Gallery, the banners do not show the Display URL si people cannot remember my site just by looking at an impression and not clicking.

 

How do we set the "Display URL" to be visible on or "near" Image banners created with Ad Gallery or the Image Ad tool from AdWords ?

 

Thank you

Hi Adrian,

Click on the specs for desktop browsers section here to see where the display URL appears: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1722096

If you want a more prominent placement, you might want to create your own image creative and upload it.

Hello CocoP

 

Thank you for pointing to that resource, but unfortunately I think it presents obsolete information.

 

There is no extra line added by google in banners with the Display URL or the message "Feedback - Ads by google" as presented in the help page :

The Ad Gallery banners only have a triangle and an X in the upper right corner, just like in the "Preview" window.

Currently I cannot see any banners with Display URLs and I have seen my banners a lot because of remarketing.

 

One site where I test remarketing quickly  is this this below which measures internet speed and it 4 adsense spots , very easy to check, every time I load it , there is no banner with added Display URL inserted by google :

Can you confirm that banners should have currently an extra line with the Display URL over the banner or below it and the text "Ads by google " or "Feedback - Ads by google" as in the Specs from the help file ?

 

Thank you

Hi Adrian,

I'm not sure I understand what you're asking.

The preview you're working with in the product isn't going to show the Display URL. But are you saying you aren't seeing the line shown in the Help resources on live ads too?

Yes, the preview shows only the Triangle Icon in the upper right corner, here is an example :

And when the Ads are live they have an extra X to close the banner, no extra line with the Display URL.

 

I have reloaded that http://www.speedtest.net/   page many times in hope of catching a banner with a Display URL added by google but with no success.

 

Maybe I fail to setup something .
