Hi

 

I installed website call tracking.. code works but google swaps out my number : +32 123 456 78  with a number without country code : 123 465 78

 

how can i make sure a country code is always present? as my site is visited by international customers

Hi @Kurt B,

 

Adding a side note here.

 

As per the AdWords policies, phone numbers that are not local or domestic for the country you are targeting, comes under unacceptable phone number

 

Example: Using a local German number in an ad that targets Canada

 

Though Shared cost phone numbers or non-standard cost numbers can be used with the call extension, where the extension will include a disclaimer saying that additional charges may apply.

 

Shared cost phone numbers use a billing method where calls to an international phone number are partially paid for by the recipient.

I read this as phone numbers used in ads.

my question is related to call conversion tracking from phone calls.

The phone number shown by Google is a local phone number. The country code is not shown - not to confuse the user.
