https redirection of destination URL

Hi, 

 

I have a requirement to redirect all my webpages to https:// 

For example anyone trying www.example.com will end up seeing https://www.example.com

if this page is my landing page and if I have set http://www.example.com as my destination URL, will my ad get disapproved ? 

 

Thanks

Kumar

Good point, Moshe!

@Kumar:
Additionally, why don't you use the https URL for the destination in your ads and avoid the redirect? Depending on the type of redirect you're using, it can potentially slow down the user experience. You can direct the user to https://example.com by selecting https in the drop-down box when you're writing your ad text.

Great thoughts, here, and great advice from the Community. Just to clarify, the URL policy is for the top level and second level parts of the URL. 

 

So, these URLs would be fine:

 

Display URL: example.com

Destination URL: example.com/shoes, examples.com/sandals

 

However, this URL would cause the ad to be disapproved: example.co.uk.
