Are Robocalls Costing Me Clicks?

Hello Everyone,

 

I am a small business owner and I get bombarded with at least a few robocalls each day. Anyways, my location targeting is for "people who are in and searching for my targeted location" and I'm just wondering if anyone has any idea if these robocalls/telemarketers are costing me adwords clicks?

 

I imagine even if my location targeting was for "only in targeted location", these marketers could easily spoof their ip addresses to get local adwords phone numbers. I am so disgusted by these robocalls! lol

 

Any light on the issue would be appreciated.

No, most probably they are not costing you any money.

If you run ads with "Call extension" you can check there if you have higher spend there. 
But, most probably they got your number from "My business" listing and thus calling you 

frequently.
