Manage Google Ads sitelinks

Test the Google Ads URL for a sitelink

In Google Ads accounts, Search Ads 360 traffics a sitelink's landing page URL to Google Ads along with the URL template that's in effect for the sitelink. Google Ads applies the template when it serves the sitelink in an ad. To confirm that Google Ads has assembled the sitelink's URL in the way you intended, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to Google Ads.
  2. Click the Ad extensions tab and select View: Sitelinks extensions.
  3. In the table at the bottom of the page, click a sitelink extension.
  4. Click the   pencil icon next to a sitelink.
  5. In the Edit account sitelink extension window, click the    pencil icon to edit the sitelink.
  6. Click the Sitelink URL options (advanced) link.
  7. Next to the Tracking template field, click the Test button.
    (The field will will be empty unless you created a URL template for the specific sitelink you clicked.)
  8. Click the More information icon message icon that appears below the Test button.Click the message icon to see the full URL.
  9. In the popup that appears, view the URL under Click URL.

    The Click URL is the URL that Google Ads will return to Search Ads 360 when a customer clicks the sitelink.
