Question about managed placements in Google Display Network

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

 

I am trying to add placements for my Google Display Network campaign where I am doing a CPM ...

 

Some of the placements I'm trying to add are getting an error message while others are fine...

 

Here's the link: bestproducts.com/home/decor/g463/essential-oil-diffusers/

When I add it to my managed placements I get this error: 

 

"Placement URLs must be provided in a valid URL format"

 

But if I add '.html' to the end it seems to be ok (ie. bestproducts.com/home/decor/g463/essential-oil-diffusers.html)

What am I doing wrong? Where can I read up on 'valid URL formats' ?

 

Thanks in advance Smiley Happy

To add or exclude a placement you show use the domain or a domain directory, not a specific page. (Pages are added and removed by the publisher, hence are not a valid placement)

You can read more on supported URL formats here:

(It's about formatting placements exclusions, but rules are the same)

Hi, so to be clear, I can choose not to advertise on specific pages?
