Tracking call conversions from call only ads

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello 

How can I make the calls from call only ads show up as conversions in the conversions column. I already have the google forwarding number conversion and call extensions conversion set up & working. Do I need to create a separate conversion for the call only ads to show up in the conversions column?

 

Thank You

Thank you. I read the document but i still dont understand. Does one
conversion record both call only ads and call extension ads? Also, once you
set up the conversions, does google consistently show the call forwarding
number instrad of the actualy number?

Hi Nick,

 

You are very welcome.

 

Try this...

  1. Choose the call-only ad you want to use, and click the pencilEdit (pencil) icon.
  2. Next to "Show my ad with," select Use call reporting.
  3. Next to "Report conversions," check the box to Count calls as phone call conversions.
  4. Next to "Conversion action," select the name of the conversion action you just created.
  5. Click Save ad.

 

Also, when you use a Google Call Forwarding Number, it is used instead of your actual business number. 

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

Thank you I followed your instructions but still have an issue. The google forwarding number is not shown consistently. Sometimes the actual business number and sometimes the forwarding number is shown. How can I make it work consistently.
