Hi,
My understanding was that with the recent google adwords affiliate policy changes, affiliates will now have to create their own landing pages before reccomending the products they wish to promote

Now, i go to google, type "music downloads" and from the adverts which show up, i right click on the heading of 2 ads of the ads, and can see that the destination url is a clickbank affiliate url
(http://hop.clickbank...) but the display url is to the merchant site.

My impression was that the display url SHOULD match the destination url

Is there something I'm missing here.

Your understanding is incorrect. Re-read the AdWords TOS and the many threads in this forum on the subject.

There is one ad per url allowed, so whoever has the
best ad rank with Google will have their ad showing.
When using the hoplink, it redirects to the
merchants domain, so the display domain would be the
same as the merchants domain. The display url must
match the domain that the visitor actually ends up
at, not necessarily the destination url.

well, there's evidently a lot of wiggle room in there.

in one category i monitor, i've noticed:

widgetsRus.com
widgets-R-us.com
www.widgetsRus.com
www.widgets-R-us.com
www.widgetsRus.com
www.widgets-R-us.com

all coming up simultaneously for the same keywords and all leading to one website (with different affiliate ID's)

i e-mailed google support to ask about it on friday.

i haven't heard back from them, but it looks like the ads have been taken down.
