I have a question about one of my ads displaying an 800 number.

There is an 800 number on my ad that I did not put there. It does not show up on my adwords text ad, but it shows up on google search engines right beside my ad. How do I get rid of that and where did it come from?

 

Thank you,

Hi Lindsey Sims,

Are you using call extension? Can you please share screenshot of your adcopy?

Thanks

Neha will be right - this is a call extension - the 800 number will be a Google tracking number which, when dialled will trip over to your phone number - but you will be able to track these calls within AdWords to see which keyword/ad combinations led to the calls.
