After investigation I believe the number is legitimately associated with Google one way or another. The problem is that they are basically commission based telemarketers with an end goal of getting you to increase your ad-words spend. They are dishonest in the manner in which they attempt to get you on onboard, giving the impression that they are Google Ad-Words support, calling to assist you out of the goodness of their hearts, to help you get the best out of your adwords account ... without spending an extra cent. I call bullsh*t.
They are in fact from Google. I don't waste my time with them though because none of them speak clear English and it's virtually impossible to understand them. Caller: ITS NOT GOOGLE
I'm an AdWords manager for several companies. The number is linked to Google Adwords support as an inbound number, however they don't make calls from this number. Google has no record of the calls made is association with my clients accounts. Someone, somehow, is using the number as the call ID. It's NOT Google.
I have confirmed with Google that this number is in fact AdWords support team :) They said they are from google, called to help with your adwords campagin. Caller: Google
I've got google adwords already but these guys keep trying to sell me more and more things. I spend over $1000 + a month already. Still not enough for google. Want to milk every marketing cent from their customers.
Google adwords spam Caller: Google
Unathourised calls to registeed do not call number
Caller: google adwords but they arent
some mob pretending to be support for google adwords. keep leaving creepy breathing voicemails. do not give your details when you return call!!
not assosiated with GOOGLE
This number has called multiple times over teh past couple of months. Alaways rings once or twice and hangsup, obviously wanting me to call back. Pest. Ignore this number. Caller: Google (But not really Google) just a third party increase profits for Google Caller
This is becoming more well known in the Industry. I manage a list of client Google Ad Accounts. The setting on these accounts are set to 'Private' which tells Google that we don't require assistance on these accounts. We still receive unsolicited calls and when we mention that our account is set to 'Private' they disappear.
Yes, these callers are giving you a few tips and how to improve your campaigns BUT... their main goal is to get yo to spend more $$$ and they are constantly calling other businesses doing the same which is just a constant cycle of everyone increasing spend to get in front of each other.... the only one that benefits is Google.
Great for Google's back pocket, not for their customers.
It's a real shame that this tactic has been pushed out to the world.
It's AdWords - but as the other poster said, they are basically telemarketers. They are there to help you spend more on AdWords. That's basically it - spend more. I have dealt with them many times over the years and not once have their suggestions made any difference whatsoever except to increase spend. I now block their calls and add the to my spam list as they are in my "time wasters" basket.
The sad thing is that they have very little knowledge of how the monopolistic Google AdWords really functions. It's a black box with a goal of making you spend more. You can be number 1 on Google organic results, yet AdWords can give you a poor quality score and charge you $50 per click because your domain is "not relevant" - despite being number 1 on organic search. It's a massive con job by Google. They have it over the world unfortunately.
Don't even get me started on the excessive amount of click-fraud that is dead obvious. Yet for all Googles "sophistication" they still charge you. Why on earth would they prevent it when they are the sole beneficiary of it? They are making far too much money off of dishonest practices. It's quite sad to see the world so utterly reliant on them. You can forget a startup coming along and challenging them. You need at least 10's of billions in infrastructure. Dear VC, please write me a $10 billion check so I can compete with the worlds largest monopoly....
They knew my name and said that they were sorry they missed my call and they were calling me back and obviously i have never called them before in my life. Weird!
Have called my place of work three in an hour requesting to speak to me, however I do not promote my employment so I do not know how they would know who I am and where I work. Caller: Google
Will not stop calling - 4 calls in 3 minutes!! Everyday - Tests my patience!
More f*cking Google AdWords paki vultures. Caller: Google Scumbags
Not sure if legitimately Google, or just scammers trying to pretend they are Google. Probably the latter.
Rang then was a long gap before anyone said anything, after a click someone said hello - I hung up as there was background noise like a call centre Caller: Annoying Google Adwords
Piss off adwords telemarketer. Really annoying
Caller: Some person with Indian accent
I couldn't even hear what they are saying.
