Hi all.

Odd, ongoing issue here.

I will create a new group of ads in Adwords. Everything is dandy, urls are correct, everything works fine.
A few days/weeks/months later I will get the email saying my ads have been disapproved due to a bad url.

ok, I go back into Adwords and test and sure enough, the url no longer works.

ok, what changed between when it worked and when it failed?

The only thing that changed is the addition of the dynamic url parameters that Google adds. ex:

If I remove all the dynamic url business, then the url works again, and the ad is approved.
Sometimes this solves the problem, sometimes I am fixing the url every few days.

Anything else interacting with Google?
I am using Search Center from Omniture as well, but I can't see how it might be changing anything.

Any ideas or suggestions or similar experiences?

I can try that, but it doesn't help the core issue that I am not even adding the parameters int eh first place.

I seem to recall something about some CMS (Content Management System) sites do some weird things when parameters are passed. I wish now I had bookmarked it. It might have been on this very forum and might have been Netmeg as she's very knowledgeable about these things.

If I remember it right and I'm correct and you use a CMS, simply turn off this feature in Adwords. It's called auto-tagging or something like that.
