Upgraded Urls TrackingTemplate goes to different page than finalurl

Hi I am trying out Upgraded Urls and have this setup:

Account level TrackingTemplate = "{lpurl}/{_cp1}"

Ad FinalUrl="http://mysite.com/"

Ad _cp1=Page1

 

that is TrackingTemplate could potentially go to different page than FinalUrl, is this allowed ?

Also, at the ad level can the TrackingTemplate be a shortened url ?

Hi @Vaithe-Eashwar S,

 

Using a 'slash'? Use a question mark '?' something like - {lpurl}?{_yourtracking}

 

About shortened URL, the answer is 'yes'. If you use a shortener, it can also be used directly in the tracking template field. But the display URL must include your original URL.

 

Thanks

Yes using a slash, I see that the urls is approved but was wondering if it will fail any policy check.
