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
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.
