Hello there,

 

If I run a campaign in the UK, Canada and Australia. Will google forward the international phone calls to my local US number?


Thanks!

Hi @Raphael I

A Google forwarding number is assigned locally, per country.

I know that. But if someone calls me from the UK. Will that call be forwarded to my US number through the google forwarding number? Or Do I need a number from the UK in order for that call to be forwarded to me?

Thanks!

Hello again @Raphael I;

You must have a local number or a toll free number. I haven't tested, but I think this number can be re-routed to your business location.

@MosheTLV already provide you the solution.
The best Strategy is creating separate campaigns for each country and using different phone numbers corresponding to those countries.

Hi There

Does the Google forwarding show data in Analytics ?

Hi Angie,

Though we can import GA goals in adwords but its not vice-versa.
So this data will only be available in adwords only, not in GA.
