Google Testing Click-to-Call Ads

Google has began testing what could be the next wave of it's strong backbone like advertising stint that it first started back in ???? The Google pay per click ads are a new way of connecting the user directly to the advertiser that is found on the Google search results page. This is done completely over the phone. This service is free of charge as Google pays for all the local as well as long distance calls.

When you first click on the ad, you are prompted to enter your telephone number. Very shortly after you enter your number, Google will call the number that you provided. Once the user picks up the phone, Google connects that user DIRECTLY to the advertiser, while at the same time blocking the number of the user so that the advertiser can not access it. Google states that your telephone number will be deleted from the servers after a short period of time. The advertiser's number appears on your caller ID when Google connects you. This way, you can save the merchant's number for future call-backs.

This has the potential to be huge ladies and gentleman.
