Recently, Google has put up a new guideline that shuts down putting your business phone number into your Google Posts. This means that if you post a phone number in a post, you will be going against Google Post’s guidelines.

The reasoning for this is “to avoid the risk of abuse, we do not allow your post content to include a phone number. You can make your phone number available on your Business Profile or website.” 

If you aren’t able to post your phone number in a post anymore, than how do you get people to call you? Google said that you can attach a “Call now” button to the post that uses your verified Business Profile number.

In the help article on Google Posts policies, Google said:

Phone stuffing
To avoid the risk of abuse, we do not allow your post content to include a phone number. You can make your phone number available on your Business Profile or website. 

Instead, you can attach a “Call now” button to your post that uses your verified Business Profile phone number.
