I have Edited my Destination URL in Adwords and it shows that it is approved but Google is still using my old Destination URL in Searches.  Is there a way to fix this?

Hello,

 

How long ago did you make this change? It can take a couple of hours from when you make changes for it to take effect on the search results page.

It's been over a week since I made the edit.

Do you have multiple ads in one ad group going to different URL? because you can only target one url per ad group.

I do, but only one is active and that is the Destination URL I changed.  Would deleted and paused ads have an effect on the destination URL for the active ad?

Do you have any keyword level destinations? You can add that column to the keywords tab. If you have any, you'll need to change them too.

 

Best of Luck!

I went threw the entire ad group and changed all Destination URLs to the accurate url.  There is no destination URL set for my keywords.  It's been a couple of days and my ads are still pointing to the wrong URL.  Any other Ideas?

"I went threw the entire ad group and changed all Destination URLs to the accurate url."

 

How many ads do you have in the group? I thought you had only one active one. And you have no keyword level keywords, so what were you going through?

 

Just curious.
