Hi,

 

The landing page URL is: https://bestpracticenet.catalog.instructure.com/browse/earlyyears/courses/bpn-ey-l3cache

 

Even to use: bestpracticenet.catalog.instructure.com as the display URL it is too long.

 

What are the options to get around this?

 

Many thanks

Hello Holly,
Your Landing Page and your Display URL, do not have to be the same. Your Display URL needs to be the same as your landing page between the "." and the .com/ but that is all. Anything before the last "." is considered a subdomain and anything after the .com/ can be changed to whatever you feel may help your ad be more relevant to your keyword.

Eg. www.instructure.com/courses

you can even remove the www. if you are trying to make room in a Display URL.

Not sure if that all made sense lol.

Check out these Pages they might help.
