I guess u are refering to Display URL in your ad

1. If you use this  34 characters which is within limits of 35 characters

2 Your other url used as is just 29 characters so you should ideall face no issues.

You dont need to use http:// in Display URL

Hope this helps

Hi glyphman, in fact the Display URL does not have a "hard" limit of 35 characters, it can only show 35 characters when the Ad is shown.  Both the URLs you've quoted should be acceptable - for length - as a Display URL regardless of any character limit.


I think the problem is elsewhere.  You've quoted two different domains as URLs; what is the relationship between them?  Display and Destination URLs must be the same domain (or the destination must redirect to the same domain and be used only for tracking purposes).
