The link to my website from my Google ad isn't working?

N/A

When someone clicks the link from my ad it doesn't open my web page. I tested the website and it works and I tested the link and it doesn't. Any help please let me know? Also I wonder how much I have spent on clicks that didn't produce a result because of the bad link?

Hi, i can guess the actual problem but you have to find out if its true.

Can you click the edit button on your ad and check if you have selected http or https?

If https is selected then change it to http.

I have "http" -this ad has been unchanged for a while and has always worked well.

I can think of only one option from here on where it would have gone wrong.

May be you or your web developer have done a site redesign which would have changed the site's url.

Please check and if doesn't works there are others contributers who can help in the forum.

Do you get a 404 page not found error?

 

Try this. In the address bar for your website, enter the landing page URL, then add

?gclid=asdlfjalkdjaflkdjalfk

 

If that returns a 404 page not found error your website has been configured (or re-configured) not to accept arbitrary arguments in the query string. Your webmaster will have to take care of this or you'll have to disable auto-tagging. Disabling auto-tagging is not a good option as you will not be able to track conversions.

 

If you want to post your landing page URL I can take a look to see what's going on.

 

Best of Luck!
