Google Ads Direct Connect Troubleshooting Tools

Click-To-Call & Ad Extension Attribution

To receive campaign attribution and send conversions, you must have Call Reporting enabled inside of Google Ads. For best results, enable it account wide in Google Ads by navigating to SettingsCall reporting → Turned on. This will allow Google Ads to place a forwarding number on top of CTM’s tracking number, allowing both CTM and Google Ads to track the call so we can pass attribution data back and forth.
