|Inaccurate Display Url|
I just received a note that one of my ads is disabled due to "inaccruate display url", and the description tells me that my display URL must reflect my website.
The product I am promoting as an affiliate has it's own website, and my display URL for the ad is an actual domain name I own, but which has no URL. Why is this not acceptable? Do I really need a website to promote other people's products?
I thought the display url could be just about anything.
No, you need to change the display URL to coincide with the page the user actually lands on.
Ok, I understand now. But, does the url of the landing page have to be my own web page, or can it be a landing page of my affiliate sponsor?
i dunno to be honest, i do little to no affiliate work, so i never bothered to read the rules.

moto, I hope the info linked to below, from the AdWords Help Center, will answer your questions.
What is Google's affiliate advertising policy?
AWA - it helps. Thanks.
The display url must be to a real, functioning website (not just a real domain name alone), but it need not be the same as the destination url.
**The display url must be to a real, functioning website (not just a real domain name alone), but it need not be the same as the destination url.**
Just to clarify. It does have the be the URL of the site you're sending them to, not just any real, functioning website. If I was an affiliate for Amazon, and was doing an ad that went straight to their site, the display URL would be something like ww*.example.com, even if the customer wound up on ww*.example.com/sports-supplies/product112asdfjklasdfui239384357.htm
Just a note: I'm not an Amazon affiliate, and that's just a link a made up.
