Can I change the displayed email address to AdWords visitors?

I'd like to be able to change the email address shown on my site when visitors land via AdWords ads. Similar to how we are able to replace the phone number with a forwarding number. Is this possible with AdWords?

 

I don't mind writing some custom code, but I'm not sure how to determine programmatically if the visitor arrived to my site via an AdWords ad.

So the real best answer is:

"No. AdWords doesn't provide such functionality and any programming solutions to do this are beyond the scope of this forum".

 

Thanks @Lakatos and @James_Clemens, I appreciate your time!

Hi @Lakatos. Can you please clarify what you mean? I am the server admin for my own site. I'm wondering if there is a cookie or something I can look at using JavaScript, or a function I can call similar to _googWcmGet() for phone numbers.

 

Basically, I'm confused by your response. Smiley Happy

Hi Rob,

 

I would suggest using a web contact form and not posting any email address at all. This is a better way to do it. 

 

All the Best,

 

James

Thanks. We do use a contact form, but not all users are comfortable with them and so we also provide an email address. Optimizing for conversions includes reducing friction, so I'm surprised that @Lakatos has accepted this as the Best Answer considering it doesn't answer my question.

 

Thanks to you both for your time, but these are not answers to my original question.

When I worked for a company hq-ed in NYC, I recall that the DB specialist used to pull those data regarding whether the user was arriving via AdWords from the website database, however, meanwhile I realized that I can not be 100% sure they were real time signals. Anyway, even if they were, the discussion of such a solution would go far beyond the scope of this forum.
