Steps to check if Google My Business is verified using Google's verification checker tool.

This is important, read it first .....

Due to changes in the verification process, it now takes 5/10 days before your business profile is verified. 

Delays might happen due to the amount of account we have to verify and the quality of information you provided to us.

I would recommend that you join the -> GMB support community on Facebook, to get notified if there are any issues relating to your account and updates on accounts approved for verification.

Now let's begin...

Step 1: Visit the verification Status Checker page

To check if Google my Business is verified, click -> https://support.google.com/business/workflow/9289460?hl=en to visit the Verification Status Checker page and sign in using the email address associated with your GMB account. i.e the email address you used while setting up your GMB account.

Step 3: Select your account from the list

If you have only one GMB account associated with the email used, you will only see one account on display.

But, If you have multiple GMB accounts associated with the same email, as show below, simply select your account of preference from the list.

Select the Google My Business account you are confirming for and click next to continue.
