Old campaign now renewed but marked as 'Inaccurate display URL'

A few months ago I ran a campaign for my e-bookstore and there were no problems. Yesterday I tried to renew it, but now the system disapproves for 'Inaccurate display URL'. Do you have any idea why this is happening?

 

Here is the ad itself (translated, because it is originally in Bulgarian):

Title: Books on promotion

Copy: The top fantasy book sequel 'Hunger games' with discount

Display URL: www.knigazateb.com

Destination URL: knigazateb.com/trilur/promotsiya-trilogiyata-igrite-na-glada/

 

Thank you a lot!

Hi Alx40, 

 

From what I can tell, this ad may have been disapproved incorrectly.  Without looking into the account further, I cannot confirm this.

Try to remove the slash ( / ) at the end of the destination URL

Hi Al-x4o,

 

I simply entered the Display URL i.e. www.knigazateb.com/ in my browser and guess what it redirects to http://knigazateb.com/, so that means you have not correctly defined your URLs and they are not running on prefix www but without it.

 

My best guess would be to create new ads and change your Display URL to knigazateb.com and it should work fine.

 

Hope that helps!

Hi Al-x4o,

 

Panjak is correct, your destination URL does not end up at www.knigazateb.com, it ends up at knigazateb.com. Just edit the display URL and remove the www. and you'll be good to go. No need to create a new campaign.

 

Best of Luck!
