How to verify your business on Google

How to verify your business on Google

[MUSIC PLAYING] 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 is accurate and complies
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. There are specific requirements
for bulk verification. Click this button
for more information. Make sure to subscribe
to our YouTube channel. And while you’re there,
you can get all the latest Google My Business videos. And if you have
any questions, you can post them in the
Comments section. Thanks so much for watching. [MUSIC PLAYING]

  1. We verified and the mail / postcard went to the right address, but the map locator (red icon) went to a totally different suburb.

    Then we went to correct and rectify the address back to our correct Sydney CBD address, and it is now asking us to verify again via postcard.

    We saw an option about instant verification and we have added and verified that we own the website inside search console but cannot locate where to instantly verify it again?

    Please help

  9. Not Helpful. Why does Google use the US Postal Service for Verification? Why can you not verify by email (GMAIL) or phone. Google uses the mail? Send it out, hope you get the info this month or not. This makes no sense. This is not a concern for Google, apparently spending more time and effort on other things, not small Business.

  25. I verified with my code, I have a live site. But there is no One at the wheel inside google. They have not set up mp business to be searchable. nor does the location red arrow locator show in searches. And Even my Address shows up two lots over. I have contacted Google maps 10 times in 18 months to make this simple adjustment. I have never been responded to. Nor can I get in touch with any one in any way to communicate the issue to a live human being. How ever, go to Mapquest submit info and I got a same day reply and modifications to the Mapquest search only took one week. How on earth is Google Dominating when there is NO tech support Presence???

  29. I already got my post card but i keep getting this message Your business is verified. Listings may be reviewed for quality and can take up to 3 days to be published. Is almost 8 days and still no doing nothing 😡😡😡😡

  30. You can consider my statement as an official claim to the Google division in Russia. Your employees send a verification code for Google business in a regular letter that simply does not reach me. an attempt to prove that my company exists ended in nothing – your employees were too lazy to check the information. I am your client id 115-276-8833 and you get money from me, but you don’t want to work. that's the whole level of an international company – the absolute laziness of employees

  34. I have a problem with Google My Business support website. On support website Google have to call me by phone to identify me. I have to enter my phone number for that, but Google forgot to enter my country/state – Lithuania – in the contry list to select from. Now I can not enter my phone, and can not get My Business support. I saw that there are no Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia in the country list too. What has happend, why Google forgot to enter 3 Europian Union states in the list?

  35. 1. There is no phone verification method for my business. But I have mobile phone for my business.

    2. My business place is a workshop in the building of the old factory warehouse yard. There are many warehouse buildings with out any official addresses asignet to them. There are many businesses there who rent or own these old warehouses. So I can not enter oficial address, building number and post code. This is why I can not get a paper mail with post card from Google there too.

    3. Email verification method is odd too. I can not enter my Google email address, because Google have decided to enter email domain (which I do no have) for me. See for yourself – I do not have an email with domain I am using Gmail insted, but I can not enter it. I can not verify my own business on Google, because of stupid verification methods.

  36. We verified our business a very long time ago and it was suspended due to "quality" issues. We've tried numerous times contacting GMB but have never received a response. We don't understand why we were suspended and we can't get anyone from Google to help us. This is a heartwrenching experience. Please provide better customer service and tech support to resolve these issues. Would be nice if we received an email or a phone call.

  37. Hey google if i verify my business than can i get blue tik on my Instagram that is llinked to that business??

  38. I can't get verified and I don't know why. I didn't got my mail and I re did the process of verification. Can anyone help me?

  39. Old employee created the Google my business account But now i want to edit the name and number They have forgot Google my business account credential But is there any possible to change?

  40. Google, Why don't you connect up with government agencies responsible for registering businesses and link up with their business ID system to verify a business. For example – if I'm in Australia you could link up with the ABR to ask for ABN number as a verification option – then you would check the ABN and name against the system and confirm with ABR that the address registered for the listing is correct.
