I get this error message when i try to add a search query from the search terms report as a keyword. I haven't changed the destination urls before July 1st because i am not using any tracking and my destination and final urls are same. So from where can i get the final url?

Hi Jithin C,

I had the same problem and called Google. They are aware of the issue and are working on it. In the mean time here is a work around they told me.

1) When adding the keyword from the search term report leave the destination URL blank
2)Click back, or go to the list of keywords and add the Final URL column ( Columns ->modify your columns->Attributes->Final URL. )
3) Find the new keyword(s) added and place your URL in the final URL column

Hopefully this helps!

Hi Jithin C,

 

This message suggests that you're using keyword level URLs. If you aren't using any tracking, you can remove keyword level URLs and have Final URLs at the ad level to make it simpler.

 

Could you check and get back?
