google places phone number - what to use for tracking

by standfast999 4 replies
I want to create GP for local businesses. What are acceptable types of telephone number to use without getting penalized.

That is, is anyone using Google Voice on Google Places?

I started thinking about using a paid local service but I am afraid Google will penalize you for using it.

    A local phone number is the best, not sure if the only one accepted, but the best for results. No 1-800 numbers or something like that. Also the address is important ( No PO box).
    Maybe can get a local forwading number, never tried it though.
    I saw somewhere a way to track google places traffic in google analytics, but it was a little confusing for me.
    Also asking your customers how did they find you is important and a different way to track results.

      well i am actually renting local number from a service like callfire. But I was wondering if it was the reason I was unable to do phone verification today.

      But it seems that they are cracking down on new listing regarding verification recently.

    Rent a local phone number where they tell you when anyone phones that number.

    soho66.co.uk works for uk, I am sure US and other places would have similar.
