Need to rebuild campaigns? Redesigning a site and losing .aspx suffix

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I am redesigning my site from a older CMS over to Wordpress, and I am planning on keeping my exact same site structure. The only difference is that the original site's URLs all end with .aspx - whereas the new URLs will not have this extension. The old URLs will all redirect to the new. Does anyone know if I will need to rebuild my adwords campaigns/edit the destination pages, or does Google ignore the .aspx suffix?

 

Thank you!

AdWords destination must be the final URL after all redirects.

Use AdWords Editor and update your ad URLs in bulk, with search and replace.

 

Make sure to add any conversion tracking to the new site.

It would still work, but you're likely to break the tracking as a result of the redirect. 

You can run a find and replace within AdWords itself, there's no need to use the editor. Create duplicates to avoid losing ad data.
