Adcenter / creating new ads

 4:29 pm on Nov 14, 2009 (gmt 0)

I create a new campiagn, and im ready to write a new ad.

Everything is complete then i click "next" 2 red boxes come up over the display URL and real URL saying they do not meet adcenters editorial guidelines. ok? i can change these URLs to ANYTHING with the same result.

the 1st time i had this problem I called adcenter and they instructed me to use {pram1} in the URL then go to each keyword and insert the URL there... I then asked ok thats fine if i had 20 keywords but what if i have 500? I have to copy and paste my link 500 times?

im stuck anytime i try to create a new ad for anything im hit with this road block!

Do the display URL and the actual URL bith have the same root domain? You cannot use any redirection between domains.

Also - check that the landing page ends up with a 200 response/ Often, forgetting a trailing / causes the problem.

I experienced the same problem this morning with putting affiliate tracking link into destination URL box. If I put what's in display URL, it works.

New rule or it's broken?

I've found that their desktop tool is much less buggy than using the site. Plus, you can make mass changes to all 500 keywords at once.

yes they also told me to use their desktop tool, but last time i checked it didn't run on a 64bit OS.

smallcomp - same issue with me using www.domain.com as the display and an aff link as the destination. I used to do this all the time with them now i can't do anything i even tired


in an atempt to try anything and resulting with 2 red boxes again.

okkkkkkkkkk back on the phone with support again and this time the person was more willing to take the problem head on instead of do the workaround.

so we did a screen recording and i showed him the problem and hes taking it to the support team to get it cleared up. I should be hearing back from him before the weekend or maybe next week.

and the AFF link problem, he said they were having issues with clickbank.

Did you get anything back from them yet? (I guess they have a holiday over there at the moment)

yes i heard back. Actually they didn't like my landing page.... its a very simple page collecting info but they told me to put up a privacy policy and create a page without an exit pop and they'll let me run with it.

as long as im contacing them and being upfront and not shady they are fine.

as for clickbank, they issues with them and arn't letting us advertise aff products from CB which sucks, but if you want to get around it use the {pram1} then go insert your clickbank URL in each keyword.

if you want i can give you the EXT to the guy im working with, he is very helpful.

No - that's OK. I was just interested in what happened.

Nice to know the support system is working though.

It worked for me through desktop center.

I sent the data to my rep, and he never got back to me.

does the desktop client work on 64 bit systems now?
