Hi Shyam,

You can actually use it for both. Most likely what you've set up is a call extension. In that case, the phone number will only display when your ad displays - not if someone clicks through to your site. You can, however, set up Google call forwarding numbers to display when someone clicks through to your site. To do this, you'll need to add some code to your web site.

 

You can learn how to set it up, here: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/6095883?hl=en

 

Restrictions and limitations:

  • This feature is only available in certain countries (the link above includes which countries are eligible)
  • This will not work for display network ads, only search.
  • This will only track calls from Google search - not other platforms (Bing, etc)
  • If you have ad groups that don't get much traffic on desktop, it may not work for them. The article doesn't define how many clicks you need to receive to begin showing a call forwarding number but I believe it used to be that an ad group had to receive at least 30 clicks a month. That said - it will always show on mobile, no matter how few clicks an ad group receives.

 

I hope this helps!
