I'm regularly getting ad disapprovals with one and only reason "Unverified phone number". I tried everything to match the policies about the same. Sometimes, it gets approved after 2-3 weeks. My new ad copy got disapproved recently for the same reason and I'm not sure what to do now. Please advice!

Google provides two ways to verify your Call Extension phone numbers:

  1. Ensure the phone number used in your extension appears in text on the website featured in your ad.
  2. Link your Google Search Console (formerly known as Google Webmaster Tools) to your AdWords accounts,
