Update Your Final URL’s

Reminder: Upgrade your URLs by July 1, 2015

In February, we announced Upgraded URLs – a faster and easier way to manage your URLs in AdWords. With Upgraded URLs, you’ll be able to manage your landing page and tracking information separately using the new final URL and tracking template fields. Check out this video to learn more about the benefits of Upgraded URLs.

Starting on July 1st, all advertisers will need to start using Upgraded URLs in place of destination URLs. If you’ve already updated your URLs to Upgraded URLs, then you’re all set and no further action is required. If you haven’t upgraded yet, read on to find out what will happen to your ads1 and URLs starting July 1, 2015, and your options for the upgrade.

What happens starting July 1, 2015

Starting on July 1st, please prepare for the following changes:
Destination URLs can no longer be edited or created. Any new URLs will need to be created using the new Upgraded URL fields.
Destination URLs will be automatically moved to the new final URL field for any ad groups in your account that do not contain cross-domain redirect URLs.2 In your AdWords account, you will receive an alert informing you of any remaining ad groups that were not upgraded.
Any ads with destination URLs that have not been updated to Upgraded URLs will stop serving in a few months. We’ll let you know 30 days before your ads stop serving by email and with an alert in your account.
