Random telephone number

Hello - my account for Q Scaffolding has a random number next to it. It isn't in my ad extensions nor is it a number on the ad itself. Where has this come from and how do I remove it?

So if you are using a Call Extension and have you "Call Reporting" Enabled. Google will automatically put one of their forwarding numbers into the ad. This allows you and Google to track the calls back to the ads and keywords. 


Previously this was called "Use Google Forwarding Number"


If you don't want a different number showing, you can disable this by editing your call extension and selecting "Off"

Hi guys,


Just adding a help page:

"Easy conversion tracking: You can count calls as conversions by simply turning on call reporting in your account. Available on the Search Network only, call reporting uses Google forwarding numbers to give you detailed conversion information."
