ReachLocal.com Getting Away With Fake Display URLs

Discussion in 'Google AdWords' started by jawinn, Dec 24, 2008.

    I'm getting pretty tired of seeing this so I will ask everyone here for their opinions. I was told by Google (and I am sure this is true for 99% of everyone else out there) that you must have the same destination URL as display in your adwords ads.

    Ex: Display = website.com
    Destination = website.com/offer
    You cannot (according to Google) have:
    Ex: Display = website.com
    Destination = website.adcompany.com/offer

    How is this possible? Any thoughts?

    As far as I can tell, several months ago Google began automating the checking of this, but so far it is not happening in real time, which means many ads can get away with it for a while.

    Send a message to AdWords support, tell on the culprit.
