GSP Expanded Ad: "Web link must be an absolute URL" Error

I'm developing a GSP expanded ad but the service is giving me a vague error message on uploading it.

Every anchor link is absolute in my code.

 

It may have something to do with the documentation which says, "URLs: must contain at least 1 absolute URL (can contain multiple)", which also makes little sense.

 

Can anyone shed some light on this?

 

Cheers

Hi Peter,

 

Does the link have "http://" at the beginning? Often websites give a message like this instead of using plain English...
