How to target deep URLs as a targeted placement with Display Campaigns

Follower ✭ ✭ ☆

Hi,

 

I'm having some issues with targeting specific deep link URLs as a targeted placement on the Display network.

Does anyone know if this is possible? When trying to submit the placement it shows an error about the URL not being valid.

 

I've included an example URL below:

 

http://www.simplyhired.co.uk/a/jobs/list/q-waxing+therapist/l-london

 

Thanks for any help

Hi Matt,

You can target placements that are deeplinked to only 3 levels. so basically you can have only 2 '/' in your managed placement URL.

Thanks Sheweta.

Any idea where this is mentioned on AdWords? Couldn't find it anywhere in their help guides.

Hi Matt,

 

Before I posted this I was looking for the links to share anyways which I couldn't find.. so I reached out to my Google rep and they gave this to me on mail. Please see the screenshot below:

Thanks Shweta that's great.

I don't really understand why Google has to keep this policy "hidden". It was actually another Google rep that encouraged me to use deep linking in my placements, not the combination of deep linking with contextual targeting that I had setup myself.

I'm having a similar problem locating where my target URL have gone to... I had 3 set up that were working very well and went to add another and it seems to have reset the parameters so that I cannot easily find the add url target panel. Does anyone know where the Target Url panel is now on Display ads? Your help would be really appreciated.
