Google is selecting a different landing page my ad.

Adwords is selecting a landing page I've not included in my ad or site links.

E.g. I want to send the ad to a specific page but it decides to send it to the search page.

Hi Owner

No Google does not change your landing page automatically. If there are any kind of problems with your landing page google will notify you about it ( You can check campaign notifications for those kind of alerts)

However I've had a incident recently from one of my client. Someone has forcefully logged in to his adword account and change the landing pages, so if there is a issue like that it's better you to be more careful Smiley Happy

Hi Owners M, as Nisal has said, Google will not change the landing page of your Ads.  If you have clicks landing on an unexpected page, it is the result of a setting within your Account, not anything Google has done.

 

One thing to check for is keyword-level destination URLs.  Keyword Destination URLs "trump" Ad URLs so if your Ad is set to go to www example.com and a Keyword is matched that is set to go to www example.com/thisfolder/ the click will go to that URL, not the one in the Ad.
