Display, LandingPage, Final URLs

I'm promoting a Facebook Page (outside of FB)  with adwords for client "example.com"

 

The adwords ad will point to a landing page, prior to going into Facebook. 

 

Is this the best structure for the ad?

 

Display URL.................Facebook.com

Destination URL (LP).....example.com/landing.page.name

Final URL.....................facebook.com/<facebook.page.name>

Hello MisterM;

I checked again at the policy :

As per the double serving : No change:

  • " This policy, known as "double serving," prevents multiple ads from the same or commonly owned company from appearing on the same search results page."
  • Further down the page Google explains what's a "Common Ownership" : Common ownership occurs when the same entity, whether an individual or a business, owns or controls one or more of the sites in question at the time of multiple ad serving

 

I think FB falls into this. Furthermore, in its guide for affiliates Google says "We'll only display one ad per search query for advertisers sharing the same top-level domain in the display URL".  (Though FB is not affiliate - the rule still applies)

Your Displayed URL and your Destination URL should be the same. That's it !

Hello MisterM; Welcome to AdWords community;


We discussed a similar question (a few months ago), on the pros and cons of using AdWords to advertise FB pages. I strongly urge, to read the link below before you proceed.

Thanks, I'll read the link.  There's certainly no deception here, the client's a major company, launching a targeted Facebook Page as a resource for consumers.  I was under the impression it was better to go to a landing page first and then go to Facebook, but I can certainly just point it directly into Facebook. Thanks.

MosheTLV: I just read the thread you posted, and as it turns out that's actually the thread I read originally a month ago when we started planning the media buy, and thought I understood it. But now I'm a bit more confused. Here's the part that made me think I needed a landing page rather than pointing directly into Facebook....: " Please note: You may use your Facebook page as a landing page on AdWords. But, that isn't recommended: .Google allows only one display URL among all sponsored ads shown on the same page,  (i.e. you cannot have more than one Facebook.com/xxx among all ads shown on the same page). If you use facebook.com/yyy, as your landing page, you might find yourself competing against "deep pocket" advertisers, willing to bid significantly higher for getting impressions of an ad with the "prestige" display URL  facebook.com/zzz.

 

Has this changed, or is there other thinking on this?  There's no deception involved , nor do I want any suspicion of such. We'll be advertising inside Facebook too, but I want to extend into other non-FB media to compliment the buy.
