Migrating to New Domain

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

We are testing a new domain, and updated our ads to point to the new domain. All of the old ads are "paused", and all "active" ads are pointing to the new domain (which is running Google Experiments to split test the new and old domains). However, all our new ads are "disapproved" with the "single domain" message. 

 

Is there something else I need to do -- perhaps "delete" all the old ads?

It looks like we may have an additional concern over Double Serving as we migrate ad groups to the new site.

Hi Irfan,

 

Paused Ads do cause problem with Single Adgroup single URL policy.

 

You can download old account in adwords editor and export them to CSV.

Then delete old ads with old URL. 

 

 

Re-submit the ads either by re-editing them or asking an adwords rep to do it for you.

 

Hope this helps!

Hi Irfan,

 

Paused ads are still reviewed. You need to delete those. The split test of domains is also a problem in that some clicks will end up at the old domain, and that doesn't match the display URL.

 

A better option could be to use an AdWords experiment. You won't have this trouble.

 

Best of Luck!

 

Pete
