Hi Will,
That is not a Google phone number, most likely, given the additional details you provided it is an internet marketing firm trying to sell you a service.
This is the help article that refers to calls from Google

The fact you get a recording voice at first is also a telltale sign that is not Google who is calling you.

Hi Will,
I don't know, it could have been Google or it could have been spammers trying to pass for Google in order to make you to sign up for one of their services.
If it was Google the only reason to call is to verify that the business exists and is legitimate.
Did you happen to notice the phone number they are calling from?

Do you have the number so we can pass it along to Google?
