Hello

 

I'm wondering how the Google Forwarding Number actually appear on the website when a user has clicked through from the ad?

 

So what kind of number will the user see?

 

Thanks,

Laura

Google will assign a forwarding number to you and this number will appear on your website when someone clicks on your ads.

 

 

Hope that helpsSmiley Happy

just to expand on the "how," the phone number text in your html in is rewritten on the fly by the javascript snippet you install to get it to work. The javascript detects that it is an Adwords click, and literally changes your real number to a forwarding number.
