Track calls as conversions in Google Ads

Tracking calls as conversions within Google Ads helps you measure the full effectiveness of your pay-per-click (PPC) campaigns. CallRail’s direct integration with Google Ads sends customer calls straight to your Ads account, making it easier than ever to align campaign clicks with individual phone calls.

Our integration also allows you to measure the ROI and effectiveness of your Google Ads campaigns by attributing phone leads at the source, campaign, ad group, and keyword level via the Google Ads API. By hooking directly into Ads, CallRail simplifies Ads call tracking and offers users a real-time solution.

How it works

Using CallRail’s keyword call tracking, a website visitor’s source can be accurately determined and assigned to a unique number via dynamic number insertion.

When your visitor calls this phone number, the CallRail system captures and displays:

  • Call time
  • PPC Campaign
  • Caller ID information
  • Geographic location
  • Last page visited (available with keyword level call tracking)
  • Provided detailed call conversion tracking data on your selected AdWords campaign

PPC Keyword Level Call Tracking

CallRail lets you discover which PPC search keywords are driving phone conversions by matching individual inbound telephone calls to the search keyword the caller used to find your website. Not only can you understand which marketing sources are driving calls, you can also drill down to the individual search keywords and link calls to specific web visitors.

Take the mystery out of leads

Pairing Google Ads with your call tracking takes the mystery out of your offline leads: how are your keywords, ad groups, and campaigns performing?
