Best practices for "redirects for tracking purposes"?
Google's AdWords policy page makes it clear that "Redirects used for tracking purposes are fine as long as the final landing page has the same domain as the display URL." - can anyone suggest any best practices for doing these redirects?
Re: Best practices for "redirects for tracking purposes"?
Simply, the page you redirect to must be hosted on the same domain. I make an example.
I have an ad which has
DISPLAY DOMAIN -> myname.ext
and obviously, following Google AdWords Policies, also my "click-URL" is hosted on the same domain. Assume your click- URL opens a page that redirects to another one. If it redirects always to a page hosted on "myname.ext", no problem. Otherwise, if this page redirects to another domain, you violate Google AdWords Policies.

Certainly, I understand that the display and the final destination URL must match. I'm not asking how not to violate policy - I'm asking how to go from "good" redirects to "great" redirects ; )
