Today, I saw someone had called and left a message. I was busy with something so I let it go to voicemail. A couple minutes later I get an email from PsychologyToday. It goes like this:
Hi Peter Hannah,
At 11:21 AM PDT you received a missed phone call. This caller found you on PsychologyToday.com.

WHY AM I GETTING THIS CALL CONFIRMATION?
Psychology Today has recently introduced call tracking and call security
for your profile. People who find you on Psychology Today see a unique
local phone number for you that, when they call it, automatically
connects to your private number.
WHY DO I BENEFIT?
1: It's a simple way to tell who found your profile on the Therapy
2: You get a record of the people who have called you (Check 'Contact
History' when you log in).
3: Spam phone calls from telemarketers are filtered out - about 99% such
calls can be screened.
To opt out of receiving these call confirmation emails, log into your
account and click the option in 'Contact History'.

Pretty nice tracking, I have to say. I wouldn't have pegged this caller as coming from PT otherwise. Nice job, PT.
