Do call only ads compete?
The industry we're in, it makes sense for us to use call only ads for mobile. However, our mobile already converts well.
Do I literally replicate the entire campaign and switch it to call only?
But won't that ultimately mean call-only, competing with my regular campaign? I obviously can't use negatives etc to prevent competition.
Re: Do call only ads compete?
Usually when you have call only ads, Adwords will prefer those instead of the old ones, since it understands that you are focusing specially for mobile on that campaign.
But if you really want to make sure that anything doesn't go wrong, you can always use the bid adjustment on your desktop campaign to exclude mobile by giving a -100% adjust on it's cpc.
Check this out here:
"If you don’t want to show ads on mobile devices at all, select -100% (not 0%) to opt out. Note that if the campaign mobile bid adjustment is -100%, then the ad group mobile bid adjustment won't be used"
Hope this helps.
