Invalid URL in attribute

I am getting errors for all my links to products and their pictures

The website URL is verified.

There is an example of URLs:

https://www.networkwholesale.com/product/cisco-7935-unified-ip-conference-station-new/Default.aspx?g...

I can open it in the browser. I can get it using Search console > Crawl > Fetch as Google

The URLs doesn't contain any spaces or backslashes so it completely satisfy to help topic https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/160038

So I do not see any reason for this error. Please help!

It is this &source=googleshopping, and I think you can replace this with auto tagging in Adwords, which tags your campaign URLs.

The easiest is to list the errors you have listed, without knowing what errors you are getting in Google Merchant it is hard to provide assistance.

We can all start guessing and not really help you.

Kind regards.

Sorry about the misunderstanding. I thought topic title is enough to describe the error.
The error is:
Invalid URL in attribute: link

Can you provide an example.

Looking at your example, there is nothing wrong about it. Are you sure there is no hidden space. I suggest contacting Google Adwords directly to ask for clarification.

Also make sure you submit the & character correctly, you might be sending & instead of &

One other possible issue is that if you are submitting an [adwords_redirect] field then the resulting landing page URL of the redirect must be the same as the URL of the [link] field.
