Tracking & Setting Up Call Tracking Properly

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

If I create a "call extension" say, 613-123-4567 while I am in Campaign #1, and the create Campaign #2 and ADD the same call extension I created for Campaign #1 to Campaign #2 when I check reporting will they all call metrics be associated with Campaign #1, the campaign it was created under, or does adwords separate them out?

 

In perhaps simpler terms, even if I am adding the same telephone number to say, 18 different campaigns, do I need to recreate the call extension each time for tracking properly?

 

Thanks, T

Hi Talexander,

Similar to adding the same set of sitelinks to different campaigns, you will be able to see grandular campaign level performance by selecting each campaign.

 

Here is a good article from our Help Center that explains the call extension set up in more detail, along with some useful tips on how you can measure the performance.
