We changed our website over to HTTPS. Will we need to change all of our Adwords destination URLs to match?

Hello,

 

Yes you will have to until your website runs on both HTTP and HTTPS without any Page not found error.

 

I would also suggest looking at the sitelinks extensions as well because you might need to change them as well. Otherwise, these links might start getting disapprove in near time when the AdBot crawls them.

 

My thoughts!

I think you can also do the redirection from http to https and you may not have to change the destination URLs then. Please check this with a Google Representative, they can guide you on this.

As far as I remember we have done this on a site successfully but am not completely sure.
