In the "Ad" tab, i checked the ad that I wished to change the landing URL, clicked Edit/Change Ads, then wrote a new Final URL. After i clicked "Make Cahnge", there's a notification that none of my changes are applicable and no change has made. Why?

Hi @Dynasty M,


Are you using AdWords or AdWords Express? 


With AdWords you can edit the ad and change the URL, however it is considered best practices to simply create a new ad or copy and paste the ad from one ad group to another and then pause the old ad. This preserves your history and allows you to go back to it and enable it, if ever needed. 


With AdWords Express, you cannot change the URL. You have to rewrite the ad and start over with a new one. 


And are you running text ads or display ads or both?


Changing landing page URL with display network.

Editing landing page URL with test ads.


Further, if you are changing the final URL, you also have to make sure the display URL is from the same domain as the final URL.


Kind Regards,
