How To Verify Your Google My Business Page

Once you have claimed your Google My Business page, you need to verify it in order to gain access to all of the features that Google My Business has to offer. We'll break down how the verification process works below. 

Desktop Computer

  1. Sign in to Google My Business.
  2. Choose the business you'd like to verify, then click Verify now. 
  3. On the postcard request screen, make sure that your address is displayed accurately. If it isn't, edit the address before you request your letter. You can also add an Optional contact name to help us get your postcard to you.
  4. Click Send postcard. 
  5. Check the mail for your postcard. Most postcards arrive within 14 days. Do not edit your business name, address, or category, or request a new code while you're waiting. This may delay the verification process.

To enter the verification code, follow these steps:

  1. After you get your postcard, sign in to Google My Business
  2. If you have multiple locations, open the location you'd like to manage.
  3. Click Verify location from the menu, or click the Verify now button.
  4. In the Code field, enter the 5-digit verification code from your postcard. 
  5. Click Submit.

If you didn't get a postcard, you can request a new one
