Hi preslox,

 

The message pretty much means exactly what it says. The destination URL must be a reacahable page. The display URL must not only show a valid top level domain, it must match the domain where the user ends up after all redirects.

 

Let's say your domain is www.example.com. In most cases, Google will call "example.com" the top level domain. That must be a valid, reachable domaIn.

 

Best of Luck,

 

Pete
