Google claims destination url not working, but it is

 10:08 am on Oct 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

Anyone ever experienced this before? I've resubmitted the same ad 4 times in a row and it keeps getting rejected with the message "Destination URL not working". That's wrong - it works fine.

Do you block the URL for surfers in India? Quite a few webmasters block India traffic. However, many a times, the Google employee who is checking your destination URL may be sitting in India.

Another reason, could be that the site is temporarily down ( server problems).

Stating the obvious but check for typos.

Try cutting and pasting from your browser address line just to be certain.

If it still doesn't work, report it to G (including how you've confirmed the URL is valid) and keep reporting until you get a human response

no, not blocking any country, and certainly no typos in the url... weird.

make sure http vs https is straight. check both www and non-www, regardless of which you have entered.

within adwords, when you click on your ad's link, what happens?

It works fine in adwords...

I've found my account on hold for a reason that was a mistake on their part. They incorrectly said that I had used javascrip in a way that violates the terms. I had NO javascript on the page at all. I just tried again after a day and everything was fine.

Doubt that will help you, but just sharing.

e-mail Googgle adwords help - and keep replying to the responses until you receive an acknowledgement that there is a problem.
