During the process of creating a campaign, I am getting the error that the url is not valid. I am suspecting because my clients website was down about a week ago, and was down for some time (thanks to yellow book and their horrible websites) anyhow, how can I fix this? The website is back up now. We do not have access to this websites backend everything has to go through yellow book which will take DAYS. Is there some debugging tool I can run the url through without verifying the site ownership. This is a nightmare, i promised this client I would have his ads up this weekend.

Hi jenn,

usually you don't have to verify the website but inserting any codes to backend unless you trying to do conversion tracking or link google analytic with adword or something else like these tasks.

Have you tried creating a new ad copy and giving the destinations URL again? if not try doing it and see whether still ads not working.
