If your page is under construction, replace your destination URL with a different page of your site that is working. Then Replace the destination url when its ready....

Hi Simas,

 

Using the live destination url not help you, as again you have to replace the Destination URL, once the orginal landing page and all the ads will come in under eligible or under review states.

It is better you can live you landing page and keep the campaigns pause paused status till 30th Nov.

 

Or follow @Pete advice. 

 

Also I would like to suggest to set campaigns start date, it will automatically starts showing your ads from 1st Dec.

Hi Simas J,

You can exclude the page for all bots with robots.txt, but you must allow AdsBot to crawl the page.

In your robots.txt file, add this:

User-agent: *
disallow: LandingPage.html

User-agent: AdsBot-Google
allow: LandingPage.html


Replace LandingPage.html with the full path to your landing page.

This isn't really necessary if your page is not linked from any other page. The bots won't find it and it won't show up in search results until one does. Just create the landing page now. AdsBot will be able to find and Google can start the approval process so your ad will be ready to serve Dec 1.

Best of Luck!

Pete
