    Infinity Call Tracking Number being indexed in SERP Sitelinks

    We're having an issue with a call tracking number being indexed in Google's sitelinks directly within the SERP.

    Obviously this isn't something we want, as it's giving us unreliable data. Unfortunately the tool in search console has been removed. The simplest solution would be to noindex the page, however it's an important page on the site, so noindexing the page is not an option.

    Has anybody else had a similar issue? or have any advice on what we can do to change this?

    You could replace the phone number with a graphic so that it is not text.
    Assuming I am understanding your problem correctly

    If I understood correctly you want to remove an unwanted link from your sitelinks.

    Here is what you need to do:

    1. Login to your Google Search console tool dashboard
    2. Click on Search Appearance > Sitelinks
    3. Add link to page which you want to remove from sitelink index
    4. Click on Demote and your sitelink will be removed in some time.

    Demotion is only temporary, I've never used this option, but I've read that it lasts a couple of months.
    If Google decides to readd the link you will have to refollow the above steps.
