URL Builder and Autocorrect (Pre-Upgraded URLs)

Note

This article describes URL Builder Autocorrect for clients who have not yet migrated to Google’s Upgraded URLs.  To read about using URL Builder for Google Upgraded URLsplease read our Support Center article

What is the URL Builder?

URL Builder is a feature that helps ensure all keywords in your account have appropriate tracking parameters included in their destination URLs (see A Guide to the URL Builder for an overview of setting up URL Builder). URL Builder appends tracking parameters when keywords, creatives, or placements are created or edited via a bulk upload in the Platform. 

What is URL Autocorrect?

Autocorrect is an advanced option for URL Builder that enhances the functionality of URL Building in the platform. If enabled, Autocorrect runs whenever URL Builder runs and fixes additional URL issues not addressed by URL Builder.

Using URL Builder alone vs. with Autocorrect

The following grid illustrates the differences in functionality between using URL Builder alone versus using it with Autocorrect enabled:

URL Builder does not run on multi-edit to provide clients precision control over URLs via edits in the grid. When using redirects, a multi-edit will be applied to the Click-Through URL and URL Builder will be triggered to rebuild the destination URL. For more information on redirects, see How to Set Up URL Redirects.
