Forgot the answer to this: Is it ok to have an Ad point to a search results page? I realize it's probably better to create a unique landing page for the family of products in the Campaign, but I was just wondering if Google still frowns on a search results page for an ad landing page?

Regards,

John

As far as I know this is allowed. I would do it for ecommerce sites in the past and had no issues.

If the search results are only ads, or going to take users OFF your site, that is a NO NO. That will trigger what they call a bridge page violation. Or potentially some other violation for doing arbitrage.

However if you goal is to take people deeper into the site it should be okay.

We do it now and then. For Organic, they want you to noindex your site's SERPs, but for ads, it's fine.
(refs: [support.google.com...] [support.google.com...]

We avoid it to a degree, because of the dynamic nature of what is shown, better to have a controlled landing page. That generally increases relevancy, and QS, and therefore ROAS.
