Hi I just want to promote my youtube channel.How can adwords help? It seems hard to do. I tried doing a text ad and it says I had an invalid url which is not true. I used tiny url to abbreviate my youtube url and it didn't work yet my full length youtube url was "too long." Why can't this process be any easier???? Thanks.

HI girlytipsetc,

 

You can use a tiny URL as the display URL. The display URL must match the domain where you end up after all redirects. But the display URL does not have to be a reachable page. You also do not need the http:// or the www. parts.

 

Let's say your channel URL is: https://www.youtube.com/girlytipsetc

 

That's one character too many.

 

Your display URL can be: youtube.com/girlytipsetc

 

Best of Luck!
