My account was suspended because of inaccurate Display URLs. So I e-mail Google telling them that I have fixed all my URL and they are according to their guidlines. They re-activated my acount after that e-mail and told me that not to re-submit an ad that goes against their guidlines...again I agree. But when it got activated I got a disapproved ad saying that "Display URL not working" So I checked it and it was working, the exact URL I had in the Display URL. But as soon as I did that, they stopped all my ads. Now my question is, Did I do anything wrong by re-submitting the same URL, cause it works, dunno why they stopped that ad by saying it doesn't work? Also, for my Topic question, whats the difference now between Display URL and Destination URL? I know I'm an affiliate and I put my affiliate link in the Destination URL. It seems that you have to have both the same. Any Comments would be great! and Thanks for reading.

Cool, thanks for the comments. I guess I better let Google do what they want of me. I hope they start my ads up again.:) I wish google would answer e-mails over the weekend....Hate having to wait over the weekend.
I thought there was an exception to affiliate programs that use redirection URL's (such as "commission junction"). I thought you could use your redirected affiliate destination URL but still display the actual URL for the website you are promoting.
You can use a redirect url, I do myself, but I think your display url still has to match the domain that your visitor ends up at. You would use the redirect url as your destination url, but your display url should still be the same as the page your visitor ends at.
I have a site aaa.com and also own a domain bbb.com (totally unrelated) that points to a directory on aaa.com/bbb/ in the adds I use bbb.com as the shown url and aaa.com/bbb/as the destination. Found no problems with AW.
