When I am pasting the same URL in Display and Final URL it is saying "not matching".  Another thing is that my link is above 35 characters in Display URL. how can i overcome this

Hi Sankaranarayanan,
Can you share your URLs? Both Display and Final?

Hi Sankaranarayanan,

Display URLs can have up to 255 chars, but only 35 will be shown, as stated here:
https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/6021630?hl=en

It's unusual to have a domain name longer than 35, but not impossible. What it is that you are using as Display URL? Can you please share with us? Remember that Display URLs not necessarily need to exist, they're just an example. Like, if you're selling yellow cars, you can have something like this:

Display URL: mysite.com/YellowCars (remove 'www.' to gain a few characters)
Final URL: http://www.mysite.com.br/cars/sport-vehicle/yellow

Also, remember that Display URL and Final URL should have the same domain.

Hope this helps.
