How To Verify Business On Google

So you’ve claimed your business on Google. Great! Next, we’ll ask you to verify your business to make sure that you are the best person to manage this business on Google. You’ll need to complete the verification process to be able to manage your business’s information on Google. 

The verification method available to you will depend on the type of business you manage. The most common way to verify your business is by postcard. We’ll send a postcard with a unique verification code to the business address you provided as soon as you request a verification.
Make sure that the address you’ve entered with your business details are accurate and comply with our guidelines, including entering a complete and exact street address, only including information that is part of your official address. Including information like cross streets or nearby landmarks when they are not part of your official address may make it more difficult to determine your location on Google maps.

Add suite or office numbers in address line two, separately from your street name and number. And make sure to include a city, state, zip, and country in your address. If you need to correct your address before requesting verification, click Verify Later. It can take one to two weeks for the postcard to arrive. While you’re waiting, don’t edit your business name, address, or category, or request a new code.
Doing so may delay the verification process. Once you’ve received the verification postcard in the mail and entered the verification code into your Google My Business account, you’ll be able to edit your business information. If it’s been more than two weeks since you requested your verification postcard, please contact us so that we can look into it for you.

Click this link to get started. Some businesses will have the option to verify by phone. If you see the phone verification option, we recommend using it, since it’s the fastest way to verify. We’ll call you at the business number listed to confirm that your details are correct. If you don’t see this option when you try to verify, please request a postcard instead.

If you’ve already verified your business’s website with Google Search
Console, we may be able to instantly verify you. Just make sure that you’re signed into Google My Business with the same account you used to verify your site on Google Search Console. Finally, if you manage 10 or more locations for the same business, you may be eligible to verify them in bulk.
