Google offers a range of verification options to help keep your Google Account secure. These options will differ depending on your business size and type. Verification is necessary to create and manage your business on Google.
Types of Verification
There are two verification processes: locations can be verified individually or via bulk verification. Depending on your business needs, you may choose to go with one or the other.
A successful individual verification results in one verified location. The verification of individual locations can be done via phone, postcards or, in some cases, via email (only if each location has individual email addresses) — learn more here.
Postcards for individual verification can take up to 14 days, so we highly recommend phone or email verification where applicable.
Bulk verification is the best option for businesses with more than 10 locations. With a successful bulk verification, you will have a verified Google Account, and all your locations will be verified. For a step-by-step guide on the bulk verification process, click here.
Sometimes, bulk verification can be delayed. Refer to this article for solutions to common issues that delay bulk verification. You can also check out the Google Business Profile Help Center.
