Google Adds Call Buttons to Posts
Posted by Joy Hawkins
Colan Nielsen spotted this in one of our client’s Google My Business dashboard today. Google is now allowing you to add a “Call Now” button as the call-to-action on a Google Post. Previously, it only allowed you to add a link to a page on your website.
It currently defaults to the primary phone number you have set in Google My Business so it doesn’t allow you to use a unique tracking number (darn!).
I also found it fascinating that Google prompted me to leave a review after I clicked the call button on mobile.
