Google AdWords Bid To Call: Cost-Per-Phone (CPP)Google has announced a new option to bid differently for phone calls versus clicks to your web site with Bid To Call charged on a cost-per-phone call (CPP) basis.

So if you are willing to pay $5 for a phone call but only $1 for a click to your web site, you can now specify so.

The ad position for these are are based on the quality score and CPP price. The algorithm is Ad rank = (max CPC bid x click quality score) + (max CPP x phone call quality score).

How do you set this up?
