Is this an okay thing to do

We have a handful of domains that we use for our PPC ads, lets call them domain1.com domain2.com and domain3.com

domain1.com is the primary domain.

as it stands the user clicks an ad comes to out site and then bounces beause the url is slightlu differrent.

On our PPC ads we want to use domain2.com and domain3.com in the url text and point them to a single page on domain2.com and domain3.com.

Domain2.com and Domain3.com will have a copy of the homepage of domain1.com. and will also be excluded using robots.txt. we do not want them spidering.

Then all the links on the pages on domain2.com and domain3.com point to the relavent deep links on domain1.com

Now my question. Is this a bad thing to do?

It should be fine from SEO as we are excluding spiders from seeing this page.

I'm not sure what you are saying and I don't really want to read your post several times to figure it out. Here are the rules.

1. Your display URL and destination URL have to be on the same root domain.
2. Your destination URL can not be a redirect of any kind and you can't have pop ups.
3. It is ok to have a campaign with a destination domain that has a link to a new domain
4. It is a good practice to create special domains for your campaigns if you are not trying to build a brand name. The landing pages can link to your other domain.
