NO, Google has NOT cancelled click-to-call

It was an odd message that started this on the official google blog. I saw it and thought this doesn’t make sense – it doesn’t sound like an official statement and it claims it was translated from another language???? Posted by “Maximal” here is the original Google Blog post…

After concientiously considering, Google has decided not to continue with Google Click-to-call project. The project has been in the media on last days because of the notice of Google agreement with e-Bay. We finally consider click-to-call agreement with e-Bay a monopolistic aproach that would damage small companies in the CRM area.

This message has been translated using Google language tools.


My original suspicion was backed up when….. the next google blog post was titled “About that fake post”….

A bug in Blogger enabled an unauthorized user to make a fake post on the Google Blog last night, claiming that we’ve discontinued our AdWords click-to-call test. The bug was fixed quickly and the post removed. As for the click-to-call test, it is progressing on schedule, and we’re pleased with the results thus far.

I’m seeing headlines this morning on my newsreader though that picked up the initial story….

Google Ebay hang up click to call which cites the “oddly terse statement” in the official google blog. Also, Zdnet’s Googling Google blog picks up on the webpronews.com article (which I’ll note again is sourced only by the fake google blog post…) and they report on the cancellation of click-to-call and talk about how good the machine translation in the post was. Of course, we don’t know what the source language for this was (or if it REALLY was translated)

Bottom line – it’s a non-story outside of this…. Google blog has fake post added due to a bug with blogger about the fake post here….
