My client is a real estate broker and has a high budget to work with. I set up a "Call-only" Campaign subtype that received 17 clicks yet she reported to me she never got even 1call?

 

Thanks!

Hi Max,

 

Have any calls been recorded? You can see them in Dimensions > Call Details.

 

I know it is a little bit confusing / misleading, but with Call Only ads you pay for clicks on your ad, and these do not always turn into phone calls. After clicking on your ad, the searcher will see a message on their phone asking if they want to call the number. If they weren't expecting to make a call, then you will be charged for a click but not receive a call.

 

Ratios of calls to clicks vary considerably. I've seen 20% and I've seen 80%.

Thanks Rob,

In call details for the last 7 days returns: 

"There are no statistics for the selected date range. Please select a different date range."

17 clicks and $175 but not one call??
