Google's got your number, but have they ever called you?

I got a call recently and I was surprised to have Google on the other line, asking me if I was interested in taking part in some additional services.

I always figured anything they wanted to discuss would be over e-mail. Then again they did ask for the telephone number for a reason.

A number of members here have reported getting called by Google.

Did they email first asking for a good time to reach you by phone?

There was no e-mail, although I did set Best time to call as anytime. I was just watching television in the evening and the phone rang and it was them.

I'm in US.

I get regular phonecalls from a charming fella from Google Ireland (I'm not sure if I'm allowed to name him?), asking if I have any problems or questions, and he offers me advice on how to better my revenue.

However I'm a premium publisher, so maybe it's different for me.

Yep, I'd had a couple of calls from Google Dublin.

I assume they go through a list and when theu come to your details, you'll get a call.

I've only given them a voicemail phone number and they've never left me a message. I did get a call from Yahoo when I closed my Overture account, though.

How much traffic do I need in order to receive a call from Google?

:D

I don't think it is about traffic Mistra. Rather, who has the potential to earn big. There are high traffic sites that can't earn above $100 while there are low traffic sites earning thousands or more.

I have never got a call from Google with regards to Adwords or Adsense and both of those accounts are very large.

On the positive side, PayPal seems to call me every other day :)

I haven't but then they don't have my number. There are generic "check your phone number is correct" messages displayed in the control panel so I guess they do use them.

Drop 'em a line ...'you don't call, you don't write, don't know how you are...."
