    I checked the search quries and they are great terms, since I do use over 1k negative keywords. But today I had 9 clicks that added to 400.00 but none of them proceed to call, i checked dimensions for CALL DETAILS. It's creating a huge headache for me. I'd love to hear your experience on PPC CALL ONLY. I wish google only charged by call since a click does not take them to the site :/

    I haven't done a ton of volume, but a landing page with the phone number has worked well for me in the past - Conversion and quality-wise.

    I never understood why some people click and don't follow through with the call. Sucks Google makes us pay for that, but they do have a business to run.

    Average CPC is $44. Is t Insurance ?
    I would suggest you to make a Pay Per Click campaign in lieu of this Call-Only campaign.
    There you can add Call-Extension as well.
    You have more control over the campaigns as well.

    Thanks guys for advice. I do run several desktop campaigns too targeting mainly desktop users and another regular campaign targeting mainly mobile/tablet with snippets, callouts, sitelinks (live chat) (consultation) and click to call. And as far as landing pages, i replicate with the big banks do for lead generation -- at the end of the day they spent lots of $$$$$ A/B testing on landing pages throughout the years.

    Like @jadsn said, it's a bitch in PPC call only when they do not commit to the actual call. I know others who complain about this too, i wish google would let us as allow to create ad copy notifying user that they will be calling once they click lol, verus that lame phone icon.

    Add something like "Tap To Call" in your description, or change business name to "call xyz now"

    i'll give it another shot. i did a call to action pretty similar to your example and adwords disapproved my ad for violating TOS bs. but i never tried the headline yet!

    I am myself a Pay Per Call publisher. I have made around $500k last year. I can prove my earnings through my Invoca platform screenshot.
    Thing is, Pay Per Call can't just be mastered from Google Adwords.
    Your niche plays a vital job in understanding what you want to achieve.
    You can try different Ad networks.
    Or nothing works, go BLACKHAT !

    I'm guessing you're primarily Adwords like me if you're making that much. I love that once you find an ad copy or keyword that converts consistently, all you have to do is optimize and scale up. Passive income is the only way to live an amazing life
