Hi Becks, can you explain your problem in more detail, or perhaps provide a screenshot?

 

I'll admit I don't really understand your question.

It typically happens when your ad appears at top of the page with colored background..it is called longer headlines which are formed by combining title and Domain name or description line 1, making your ad stand out.

a) Title + domain name without www
b) Title + first description line if it is a complete phrase or sentence or
c) Title + part of description (have seen very less of these cases)

Please do review your ads carefully as sometime I have seens ads with Title and domain/description line appended may make your ads look complicated and vague than appealing... in my personal view.

I strongly feel that there should be some control given to advertiser wherein they specify if Google should modify their ads in such fashion..

The Title should be just Organic bandana bibs. The free UK delivery should be on the next line. No web address after it.  When I view my ad in Adwords it looks as it should, not as above.
