Hi,

 Our services are available along the country so we are thinking about buying local numbers for the most important cities. We are interested in track the calls, do anyone know if  Adwords forwarding number would maintain the area code?

 

Many thanks

Hi Veronica R,
If you choose to use the Google Forwarding Number as part of your call extension, depending on your region, it may show a different number to the local number of your region.

If you use a Call Extension without the Google Forwarding Number then it will show the number as you inputted it.

Hi Veronica,

Im my experience (in the UK) the number will be shown as a freephone 0808 number. I would advise using a company called ResponseTap to generate single tracking numbers to use in your adverts call extensions - You can choose a geographical area code for yourself.


In short, no Google's forwarding number doesn't maintain the area code.
