How to reverse url and title in first line of ad?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

When displaying my ad, the blue title line is in the format URL - Title. I understand you cannot change Google adding your URL into this line, but is there a way to reverse it so that it appears like this: Title - URL?

 

I have seen many other companies have this format but I cannot find any information on how to do so.

Hi Shaun,

In case you haven't, one thing that may help at least for the time being (Expanded Ads Change this) would be to try and use segmented ad copy. Have description line 1 end with punctuation. This increases the chance that you'll end up with a format of [headline - description 1] as your full ad headline.

Also good to note is that with Expanded Text Ads, you'll have full control over this.

Hi there;
Simple answer. Ad formats are pre-defined by Google and cannot be customized.
