Ads Disapproved due to Destination not Working policy 1 Recommended Answer 35 Replies 97 Upvotes

Good Day,
 
I need some help with this error message that I suddenly started getting. My ads were running fine and the next thing they are disapproved forDestination not working.
 
I made my website mobile friendly thinking it may be that, but that didn't work, nothing I am doing is working (BTW, I am able to open my website from different devices so there is nothing wrong with the site or the pages). I am not an IT expert so I need someone (preferably Google themselves whom I am paying (prepaid already) for the ads) to give me step by step directions on what needs to be done. My website is running on WordPress 4.8. Do I need another plug-in or something? What should I do to fix the error?
 
The exact error is this: Destination not working
 
The following is not allowed:

  • Not allowed Destinations that don't function properly or have been incorrectly set up

Examples: A site that returns an HTTP error code, such as 403 Forbidden or 404 Not Found; a site that doesn't work in all locations or on common browsers and devices; DNS lookup errors; internal server errors; site under construction

We have noticed similar errors when it comes businesses which are not supported by Google's policies. So, it might be worth checking..

Help I am also getting this - I have double checked destination and it is working - have used the little tool that lets you get the link is working and it goes thru smoothly.  Another ad is also using the same destination and is not having this issue.  

How do I get help in resolving the problem?

hi, my problem was I had activated geolocation. I needed geolocation  to define from which country the visitor came, without blocking the display of the site to any country but adding a class in the css. Me too all tests were positive. once the geolocation was removed, the ads went online.
