To get the most of this latest update, it is first important for the advertiser to use the location-specific phone number in the advertisement that is there in their Google My Business profile. This new update from Google has widened the exposure for ads, which includes location extensions in them.

As per this upcoming update of Google, it is being advised to the advertisers having location extensions to ensure that their Google My Business listings are updated with the accurate contact numbers for each location of their business. There are plenty of cases, where the advertisers with physical location prefer to direct calls to a central number or call center to acquire ad conversion and tracking. Google is completely aware of this concern, which is why it suggests the advertisers to submit a form before the implementation of this latest Google update to opt out of having local numbers show in location extensions. However, taking such step might negatively impact the ad impressions.

So, it is mostly recommended by Google to use this latest update to generate more prospective exposure for ads in spite of opting out and creating a negative impression on the advertisements.
