Google Forwarding Numbers

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have many campaigns set up with call extension numbers. When I search for them in a google search, a lot of them come up as the actual number which I have entered. Which is what I want. Unfortunately, there is one campaign that has the exact same settings as the rest, but is only displaying an 0330 number (a google forwarding number). How can I get this to display my actual number and not the forwarding number?

Good morning.


First, you should not search for your ads in the live Google environment. Each time you search and your ads are triggered, you may be losing a chance for your ad to trigger for a potential customer. Use the ad preview tool in your account when you want to see what your ads look like.


Second, go to the Ad Extensions tab and find the campaign where you set up the campaign or Ad Group for a Google forwarding number and remove the option. That should clear up the issue.
