Why is my company URL shown twice?

[ Edited ]

When I use the Ad Preview and Diagnosis tool to check my ads, they often appear like this:

 

Title Line | mywebsite.com

www.mywebsite.com

Additional Text Line

 

 

When I'm creating the ad, the preview looks like this:

 

Title Line

Additional Text Line

www.mywebsite.com

 

 

That's what I want it to look like. Why the difference? How can I make it so that the website is not shown twice?

I think it looks messy and unprofessional.

 

Thanks.

Hi  raylf77;

 

 

Well...Google, with its analytic tools, thinks that this ad format (with a vertical line / divider), for selected ads is more attractive for users.


 

Read the following from Google:

Showing the display URL domain in the headline for select ads on Google

Thanks. I guess I'll have to live with it.

 

I really wish we had the ability to opt out.

Hi again fnippy

I must say that I haven't thought on "opting out" until you posted. And now, I think it's a nice idea to have an option to opt-out...
