Dest. URL leading to wrong page

Participant ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi

 

You will think that I am crazy telling this and ask me to doublecheck. But trust me I have.

 

Thing is, I have an account where all active ads have the same destination URL, something like this:

www.mywebsite.com/pressure

But when I do a search on Google an ad will show up that has a different destination URL. Same website, but different landing page. And that URL is also the destination URL of a paused ad.

I have checked this in live and in the diagnosis tool.

No changes have been to that account last 2 days, and that campaign and those ads haven´t been changed for a week.
There are no redirects involved.

 

I do intend to delete paused ads to check if that has any effect, but I wanted to report this bus (?) first.

Hello, David. Do you have any keyword-level URLs? They take precedence over ad URLs.

Oh yes,
that is so good Calin! That´s the explanation!

I seldom put keywords dest. url:s, but sometimes we use a program to built campaigns and it does that automatically, quite annoying, and I totally forgot. Thank you!

You're welcome, David. It's a "classic", along with "there's another advertiser showing ads for the same website".

I am having the same issue. Is there a quick way to check and change keyword-level URLs?
