Here today and gone tomorrow! Where did Google Click to Call go off to?

clicktocall1127b.jpgThe news of Google rolling out Click to Call spread like wild fire last week. I expressed optimism about the service while some, like Matt McGee expressed reservations about its impact.

Pundits not to worry. Its gone today. Not sure what happened to it either. When I searched today from Olean, NY it was gone. However others are reporting still seeing the feature.

Please consider leaving a comment as your input will help me (& everyone else) better understand and learn about local.

  1. I’m not seeing the “call” link like in your screenshot in this post of yours:

    But, if you click on the pin, are you still seeing a “send to phone” link in the flag that springs up on the map?

    I ask because I’m wondering if they changed the format. They may also be experimenting with different user interfaces at different data centers.

  2. That’s odd that it disappeared. I wonder why.

    I do see a big list of phone service providers to choose from, and a place to put my phone number. Maybe they are still negotiating something with the phone service providers in your area, if that is a necessary step they need to take.

  3. It seems to have returned permanently. If the Plus Box development indicated by Matt Cutts applies here then it could be a difference in updating and functionality based on platform (PC vs Mac vs Linux) and browser.
