Including tracking number when you submit to data aggregators? Ex. BrightLocal


Jul 10, 2013
I am using a call tracking number on my GMB listings (as primary with real number as secondary). I am going to submit my locations to a data aggregator (ex. Brightlocal) and wanted to know if I should include the call tracking number as well? Since the call tracking number is not our permanent number I can't see any benefit to doing it but wanted to hear from everyone elses experiences.

You definitely want to submit your real number to the aggregators, not your call tracking number. If you submitted the call tracking number you're using for GMB, you'd mess up your metrics because you could be getting calls from directories on that number too and then you'd be thinking they were GMB calls.
