How To Track Phone Sales In Google AdWords With Call Metrics

Every online merchant knows how complicated it is to track phone sales… Google has announced a new Ad Extension called Call Metrics. This works by getting a new phone number for each campaign through Google Voice. AdWords will then report how many calls that ad received.

How-To

Go to the Ad Extensions tab on any campaign and select View Phone Extensions. From there you can select New Extension. You will be prompted to fill out the following info:

  • Country
  • Phone number to call

Then check the box next to “Call metrics: Use Google Voice to track calls from my ads”.
