Currently our destination url is http://www.example.com. Is it a TOS of violation if we set-up a mod rewrite redirect in htaccess to [example.com...] for this destination url? I don't feel like waiting days for a review if we change the add with the new url.

destination url or display url?

the destination url (after redirect) should be on the same domain as the display url.

http://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=175906 [support.google.com]:
The domain of your display URL must match the domain of your landing page URL (after any redirects).


in your case it appears the display url is http://www.example.com and the destination url is [example.com...]

same domain...

URL for root page of site ends with a trailing slash. Be sure to add it.

"The domain of your display URL must match the domain of your landing page URL (after any redirects)."

I wonder if framing is ok?

Eg I display lemons.com, I redirect to oranges.com but the url at the top still shows lemons.com?

It's the functional equivalent of a rewrite. No matter how you slice it, you're showing one thing on the page and a different thing in the address bar.

:: wondering if the OP ever got a full answer, since that question was not about domain (example.com) but about protocol (http vs. https) ::

the OP was answered in the 2nd and 4th posts.

the answer to snoopy1122's post is - no framing like that is not ok.
the destination url has a different domain than the display url.
