A Step-By-Step Guide To Verifying Your GMB Profile
How to Verify Your Business on Google
One of the most critical factors to help increase the ranking of your local business on Google is to claim and verify your Google My Business listing (GMB Profile). By verifying your local business’s location, you tell Google that your business is indeed located where you say it is.
Step 1: Log-in to your GMB Dashboard & Select the Business or Location that you want to Verify
The first step to verifying your Google My Business profile is to login to your GMB Dashboard.
Next, you will select your business or location (if you have more than one), and click the “verify now” button. You can find the “verify” your business in two locations: in the main listing area, or within the actual business dashboard (see below).
Step 2: Input Your Correct Business Address Information
After you click “verify” on your google listing, another screen will pop up asking you to fill in your business address information.
Step 3: Click Verify & Send to Receive Your Postcard by Mail
You will now verify your business information and click send. You will now have to wait for Google to send you a postcard in the mail. The average time to receive a verification postcard is about 2 weeks, but most of the time it only takes a few days.
Step 4: Enter the Verification Code Printed on the Postcard
When you finally receive your GMB verification postcard in the mail, you will have to enter the 5-digit code they have provided you. Simply login to your GMB dashboard and enter the code provided for that business location.
There you go, you have now completed the verification process for your Google My Business listing!
