Google Places Verification
Google Places Verification
A few weeks ago I was invited to write a guest post on Search Engine People‘s blog. I genuinely accepted the proposal as they are the biggest SEO company in Canada, and a little more exposure for my articles is always welcome. The topic I picked was “Workarounds for Google Places Verification” – problem, which many business owners are facing daily. We are asked all the time about opportunities to get phone verification instead of postcard, as it takes 2-3 weeks longer. Furthermore, the re-verification after practically each more major change on the Place page could also be frustrating.

The article featured three main points:

1. How To Get The Verification Letter Sent To A P.O. Box – while “PO box” is a forbidden word on Google Places, there is a nifty trick to get your letter sent to a post office box address; very useful for those who do not get mail to their physical business location.

2. How To Get Phone Verification – three ways to get phone verification when you are creating a new listing; one of the tactics is specifically for UK and Canadian businesses.

3.Avoiding Re-verification – the title tells it all – how to avoid re-verification when changing your business name or address on Google Places.

If you have missed the article, I recommend you take a look at it.
