Tracking template redirect

Hi

 

I've had a tracking template in place which uses a javascript redirect to pass the user to the final url

This has been working for a year now with no issues. (I'm using javascript redirect so that I can place a Google Analytics tag in there as well as it redirects to an affiliate site)

 

In the past 2 days I've had my ads disapproved due to 'Destination Not Working'

When opening a support ticket they got back to me saying the problem was actually a 'Final URL Mismatch' (and the Adwords UI is wrong) - due to the redirect being a javascript redirect rather than a 301 or 302 redirect.

 

It seems strange that this would run for a year with no issues and suddenly fail.

I couldn't find any documentation on Google saying they require a server side redirect.

 

Does anyone have and idea if this is the case or a support mistake ?

 

Thanks
