In a bit of a pickle. 
I had one website, which has now been split into 2, and the domain names swapped.
Can I add a second domain to my account.  I have verified the existing one, but can't find a way to add the second Smiley Sad

Hi Nici,

 

It is not normally best practice to advertise two domains in one account. But, yes, you can try different domains inside one AdWords account without any harm.

Just make sure that you adhere to Display URL Policy and use only one website per ad group.

 

Please let me know if you have any confusion.

(1) if this is temporary split with a migration to a new domain --
not a permanent split -- then, the claim in the merchant-center
should likely wait until the entire migration is finalized.

then, after the migration, simply claim the new site,
within the existing merchant-center-account and
resubmit the current registered feed will all new
domain information.

(2) otherwise, a merchant-center multi-client-account
would be required to claim more than one domain.

a normal merchant-center-account only allows one domain to be claimed --
since, by default, google allows only one, single, domain per merchant.

regardless, be certain that the physical inventory and website content
do not overlap the domains -- listing the same similar physical inventory
items or content, from multiple websites, is generally a policy violation
and grounds for disapproval or suspension from the program, at any time.

(3) the issue of multiple domains with respect to a merchant-center-account,
has absolutely nothing whatever to do with display-url's within an ad-group.
