FAQs

Will my Google Ads click-to-call tracking number report calls as conversions in Google Ads?

Calls to your click-to-call tracking numbers won't report as conversions in Google Ads. In order for calls to report as conversions, you'll need to use keyword-level tracking.

Learn more about using CallRail to track call conversions in Google Ads.

What happens if I disable my Google Ads Mobile Click-to-Call integration?

If you disable your integration, your mobile click-to-call tracking number(s) will remain active, and will still report calls in your call log; however, those calls won't report the keywords associated with the click. Disabling the integration simply prevents keywords from reporting to CallRail, and won't disable your tracking numbers or interrupt your call routing.
