The accuracy of analytics using the Call Tracking feature depends on the number of reserved phone numbers for the tracking pool. If the number of your website visits increases, it is suggested to reserve more phone numbers. To define the right proportion, use the following formulas according to the selected widget view type:

  • Plain Text: Accumulate the average number of website visits according to the formula:

    (The number of visits for the last 72 hours) / 3 / 100

    Example:

    For the last 72 hours, you had 4900 visits. As a result, it is suggested to have 17 reserved phone numbers in the tracking pool. Non-integer numbers should be rounded up.

    4900 / 3 / 100 = 16.3

    If you are using third-party website analytics, it is suggested to monitor the number of visits by hours. The maximum number of visits per hour is the required number of reserved phone numbers for the tracking pool.

    Example:

    Usually, there are about 20 visits per hour to your website. Around 12 am, there's a peak number of visits, which is 28. This means you have to assign 28 phone numbers for the tracking pool.

  • “Call now” button: It is suggested to monitor the number of calls by hours. The maximum number of calls per hour is the required number of reserved phone numbers for the tracking pool.

    Example:
    Usually, there are about 10 calls per hour received from your website. But around 12 am, there’s a peak number of calls, which is 17. This means you have to assign 17 phone numbers for the tracking pool.
