To make sure the basic information you submit is accurate, we'll ask you to verify it. This process helps us give the best possible information to your customers on Google.
Most business owners verify by postcard. If you’re verifying a business that’s already on Google, you may also be able to verify by phone. And if you’ve verified your business’s website with Webmaster Tools, you may also be eligible for instant verification.
