Using Google Translate for AdWords Destination URLs

Oct 1, 2008 • 8:11 am | comments (0) by | Filed Under Google Ads (AdWords)

A Google Groups forum member says that he has installed the Google Translate tool on his web site. He created ads with the translate tool and used the Google-provided URL as the target of the ad.

Just a few days later, he was informed that he violated the Google Guidelines and the ads were disabled. What recourse is available?

AdWordsPro.Steph says the following:

The Google AdWords system automatically flags destination URLs that start with Google domains, which is unfortunate in the case of translated sites because it's actually your site and not a Google property.

So what's the option? Well, according to Steph, there's a "Remove Frame" option on pages where translated URLs are generated. You can remove that and get the URL there. That's the one you want to use.

Forum discussion continues at Google Groups.
