Hi Zined,

You have to use domestic phone numbers only. For example you can't target Bahrain and use UAE phone number, you have to use a Bahrain domestic number.

Check the call extension policies here:

Hi Zined

 

 

Just want to add a small info here, if a customer outside your country sees your ad then ads display the country code as well.

 

Please look at the snapshot below. I am searching from India and the ad with the US contact number is coming with +1(US Country code).img1.JPG

 

So, if your targeting location is Kuwait & Bahrain and your are using the phone number of UAE, then the user in Kuwait & Bahrain will see the country code of UAE as well along with your phone number.

 

Try searching for your ads with a proxy server website like hidemyass.com.

 

Hope this helps!

 

Abhishek

Are you using call forwarding numbers and call tracking, or standard call extensions?
