I have a client that owns apartments.

I am in the process of wanting to do a citation push and saw that the GMB number was different than the one on their website.

I asked which one was the main phone number. They told me that they use the 2 different numbers for call tracking. The website number to track website calls and the GMB number to track GMB calls.

I never encountered this because I have always told clients to have 1 unique Name, Address and phone per location.

For example sake let's say there numbers are
512-999-0001 - GMB number
512-999-0002 - Website number

What would be the best way to handle this situation?

Would this work?

1. Create a secondary number on Google My Business that contains the website phone number (512-999-0002) and use the GMB number (512-999-0001) for citation push.
2. Add schema markup to the website that includes the Google My Business phone number (512-999-0001)
