Unfortunately the displayed URL is too long.
I skipped the www. , but it is still one letter too long. Asking for an exception was rejected without any further hint, how to make it work.
Any suggestion?

Get a shorter domain.

I never ran into that situation but try cutting off the last letter. So instead of longdomainname.com, you show longdomainname.co
It probably wouldn't pass but worth a try. Let us know if it works.

Cutting off the last letter did not help.
The adwords are not showing.

You need a shorter domain. No two ways about it.

netmeg is correct. At one point, exceptions were made to the display URL character limit - but this has not been the case for quite some time now.

If a new domain is not in cards, then you might to want to consider the other CPC advertising programs out there - such as Yahoo! Search Marketing and MSN adCenter, to name two.

Although I suspect that they, too, have character limits, they may be long enough to allow that one extra character.

I know that being over by one letter has to be really annoying - and my apology for that.

Thank you for your comments.
Now we have taken another Domain and, as expected, no problems.
