Bing - why won't my ad direct to my tracking link?

Hi guys.

So when I was setting up a new campaign, the 2nd step is Ad Groups & Keywords. In this section it says Your Website in which I put my Clickmagick Tracking Link (with /{keywords}/{adgroup}/{adid} inserted at the end).

I THEN at the next step (Create Your Ad), saw another box titled Final URL, so I thought given I already put my tracking link in Your Website, that I could just enter the domain of the offer I'm promoting in Final URL as I thought that is just for display purposes and that if someone clicked my ad it would link to what I put in 'Your Website'.

It seems that is not the case however?

When I went to Campaign Manager to test clicking my Ad it just directed to what I put in 'Final URL' and NOT what I put in 'Your Website' (my Clickmagick Tracking Link).

If I put my Clickmagick Tracking Link in 'Final URL' then it comes up in the Ad texts and just looks stupid obviously.

Any ideas

    Use Clickmagick link in Final URL. Use website name in Display URL.

    Display is what u see in the results. Final URL is where the user is routed to.

      There is no such thing as Display URL anymore in Bing. They may have recently updated it?

    Display URL is still on Bing. Use Text Ads & you should be able to see this field.

      Kind of slapping myself now. Thanks man. I even spoke to Bing support and they didn't know...

      Shame the character limit is much shorter - I'll have to use expanded ads.

      Now obviously I don't want my Clickmagick tracking link to show up on the Ad so can I arrange to put my domain in 'Final URL' and have my domain forward to my Clickmagick link?

      If so how?

      Thanks so much in advance.
