Delete URL in Adwords Title

I would like to delete the URL in the head of my ad. I've marked some examples here. The 2nd ad does not have a URL in the head.


What should I do to have the same?

Hi There,

Currently it isn't possible as this is the way Google shows the top results in the SERPs now. This feature has been activated for 3+ years now and you can't get rid of it as of now. See here http://adwords.blogspot.co.il/2011/05/showing-display-url-domain-in-headline.html

Hi Jordan,

Thanks for your reply!

Do you mean the #1 result with top result? Because I have some example (like this one: http://screencast.com/t/VxiBesujlFAs) where the 2nd ad has no URL shown in the headline. One thing I've noticed while I'm checking this again is that this advertiser has written the words of his URL in his ad.

I would like to hear from you.

The URL is added automatically, when the AdWords system thinks it will improve CTR. It's not especially predictable, nor can you directly control it in your account.

In theory, you can call AdWords support and ask them to turn off the feature in your account, but they almost always reject such requests.
