Can I change the target URL on my existing campain?

When you click on my add I would like it to go to a certain page on my website instead of my homepage.

Can this be edited or do I need to delete add and start again?

 

Cheers,

 

Andy

Hi Andrew F,

Yes you can edit your ad copy and can change your destination url. Editing an existing ad will delete the original version of your and a new ad will be created and your new ad's performance history will be set to zero. However, you'll still be able to see your original ad's performance history by selecting "All" from the "All but deleted campaigns" drop-down menu above the statistics table and You won't be able to resume the original version of your ad.

To edit your ad/ads please follow the instructions in the given link

You can also change the URL on the keyword level. This way you don't have to lose ad history. The keyword level URL trumps the ad level URL.

Accepted answer really didn't answer, how one can change destination url. You only said "yes, you can" and then there was few sentences on totally different topic.

I still can't find the exact text box, where I can change the url.

@Rauli R - Go to the ads tab, then click the edit button on any ad.  You can then see the destination URL and change it.

 

Alternatively, you can download Adwords Editor and do the same (I find Editor a bit easier to use for ad copy/changes).
