Text Ad landing page issue

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have recently edited the final URL in my Text Ad but when the Ad is clicked on it directs to the home page and not the page I would like. The new URL  is of the same domain. I have also created an entirely new Text Ad with the new landing page URL and it still directs to the home page. 

 

What is the issue? What can I do?

 

Thank you.

Hi Jack,

 

Can you please share the landing page URL?

 

Thanks,

The landing page URL is daleceilings.com/get-quote

 

Perhaps it could be an issue with the lightbox?

 

I have also tried to use this URL as a sitelink extension and after several tests the extension has only showed up once.

 

Thank you.

Hey Jack,

 

In the Final URL, what URL path are you using?

 

Try with https://www.daleceilings.com/get-quote

 

Waiting for the reply.

 

Thanks,

Hi Jack,

 

Please ensure that you don't have any redirects set up in the website. In case any of the actual URL doesn't work, it redirects to the home page in most of the cases. Also ensure that you are using the correct URL in final URL placement in the ad creative.

Ok I have figured out the issue. I assumed that the / part of the final URL had to be completed in the "path 1" section. I now realise that is just for how it appears on the ad and not an actual URL path. I had it as www.daleceilings.com in the final URL and get-quote was in the "path 1" section. 

 

I'm surprised this isn't explained anywhere.

 

Thank you both for your time.
