    Time-Outs
    I submitted about 18,000 new ad groups to Google over the past week, promoting a single SAS merchant. Today, I received a flow of "disapprovals" with the reason "Destination URL not valid."

    And sure enough, the links don't work -- they are all "timing out."

    Is anyone else experiencing this? I don't know for certain if it's ShareASale or the merchant (hocks), but it looks like it's not getting redirected from SAS.

    I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die
    to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there
    isn't and die to find out there is.

    Thanks, Donuts. I've just checked and they do seem to be working fine right now. But these are the exact same links I was using earlier today, and they were timing out then -- and of course, they also timed out for Google.

    Nope, just regular letters, numbers, and dashes -- and when I tested this morning, I removed the afftrack parameter entirely, and the links still timed out.
