Google Adwords Lays down the Law on URLs

Posted on March 21, 2008 in Google Adwords  

I was checking my stats as usual today and noticed an alert for Google in Adwords.

Important Change to URL Policy Enforcement
Starting in April, display URLs for new ads will be required to match their destination / landing page URLs, without exception. Please adjust your URLs accordingly when creating new ads.

What does this mean… Well it means no more url faking… Some Example Ads that won’t fly anymore…

DVD Rental at BLOCKBUSTER
DVD Rental Movies with BLOCKBUSTER.
Over 80,000 Titles. Learn More Now!
BlockbusterDeal.com

When they are sent to www.blockbuster.com.  Ultimately it means is the Url shown has to be the page the user ultimately lands on. People would show various urls like www-.blocbuster.com  or www_blockbuster.com  or even some would show blockbusterdeal.com as their url but send them to the www.blockbuster.com signup page. Google says no more to this.  Good news is they still are allowing you to use tracking urls. Below info is taken from their Learn more page on the issue:

Tracking URLs

Your ads will be approved if the URL of your landing page domain matches that of your display URL domain.

For example, the following would be acceptable:

  • Display URL: www.google.com/adwords
  • Destination URL: www.trackingurl.com/google123
  • Landing page URL: www.google.com

However, this example would be unacceptable:

  • Display URL: www.google.com/adwords
  • Destination URL: www.trackingurl.com/google123
  • Landing page URL: www.trackingurl.com

Sub-Domains

The use of sub-domains and additional text within the display will continue to be acceptable, provided the top-level domain matches the URL of your landing page.

For example, the display URLs below would be acceptable for the landing page URL of http://sub.google.com/miscellaneous, as the top-level domains match:

So there you have it. No more shooting from the hip with Google Adwords, no more throwing up a quick url to fake Google out. You will have to build a landing page or site or send them directly to the deal page and show it.  In the past this change would have effected me but i moved away from this method a long time ago so bring it on G!

    Man that stinks as I have a few campaigns I use that method on while my landing pages are in development. thanks a lot Google more work for me.

    I think there’s going to be a lot more work with iframes now esp. because google only runs one ad per URL and that is the one with the highest bid so people will have to get creative or shell out the dough to keep their ads running.

    i gave up on google months ago. yahoo & msn are my friend.

    I was really bummed when that showed up in my admin panel because it was a great way for me to boost CTR for some offers.

    Noted your snippets said “for new offers”. I never noticed that before – so does that mean the old ones get grandfathered in? That doesn’t sound right at all, but thought I’d check.
