Google Click-to-Call: Has anyone tried this yet? I couldn’t get a phone icon on any of a dozen keyword-rich searches I tried.
We’re testing a new product that gives you a free and fast way to speak directly to the advertiser you found on a Google search results page — over the phone.
Here’s how it works: When you click the phone icon, you can enter your phone number. Once you click ‘Connect For Free,’ Google calls the number you provided. When you pick up, you hear ringing on the other end as Google connects you to the other party.
From the description, I can’t even figure out how this would work. You give your phone number…and Google calls the advertiser…then you pick up your phone…and it’s ringing…what?
