There are two ways to check if Google My Business is verified or not.

One way to do this is to use a free Google tool (Google verification Checker tool) to do this. The second way is to simply check the notifications on your GMB dashboard.

In this article, I'll show you two simple ways to check if Google my Business is verified and what to do if your account isn't.

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 number of accounts 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, 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 2: Confirm your email

Confirm that the email address you are using is associated with the business profile (the GMB account) you want to confirm the status for.

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 shown 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.

Step 4: Confirm the status of your account

If your account is not verified, your verification status will show "Pending", or "Not requested".

Watch the video above for a detailed explication of each scenario and what to do if your account is in either of those states.

An alternative method to check is Google My Business is verified ...

Another way to check if Google My Business account is verified is to simply log into your GMB dashboard and look out for the "Verify now" notification banner asking you to verify your account. (See Label 1 below)

Verification Notification On Gmb Dashboard

If you do not see this notification message on your dashboard, it means your account has been verified and you can start using it.

In some cases, your account might be verified, but due to issues like GMB suspension or re-verification ban, you might see a different notification on your dashboard.

Final Step: Join the GMB support community

The final and most important step is to join the GMB support community to ;

  • get updates on your verification status, 
  • get support from our team of GMB experts,

1. If you're having problems verifying your business profile or fixing a suspended profile, I'd recommend getting our support team to take a look at it:

      GBP Verification: Where you're trying to verify a new business profile or re-verify an existing one, we can help you get your business live on search in no time.

      GBP Reinstatement: Get your suspended Google business profile reinstated and back online in 7 days without losing any client reviews. 

    • Hello Dimakatso, Kindly follow the instructions on this page to apply for the GBP verification. Once we receive your application, we will review and approve accordingly.

  • My name is asamoah Emmanuel,I apply for my business call goodly child school to be verify since yesterday 12 April 2022 but still verify yet please I need urgently.

  • I’m having a problem with my business profile. It is saying it is disabled but I have no idea why. I’ve checked my info and don’t see anything wrong.

    When I started my website I created the gmail email below but once I purchased a domain thru Google, I got a new email.

    Does my business profile have to be either the email connected to Google domain or can I use the regular gmail that I created. Both are saying disabled.

    • Hi there Shamekia, you can use any email for your Google Business Profile as long as it is a Google email. Regarding the ‘disabled’ status of your GBProfile, please send our tech team an email at hi@ztallion.com and they will help you resolve this.

  • Thank you so much for the information. I did try to verify, says not requested, but our account has been suspended, I did review all our information and it appears we are in compliance. I received an auto email on 6/13/22, but the suspension has not been lifted and I do not know another way to request verification if suspended. When listening to your tutorial I did not here how to resolve or where I can request verification on another page. Please help. Thank you very much. I will also join the community for additional information, but I need to fix this as quickly as possible.

  • This is Janet again, I commented approximately 1 hour ago re: verifying an account while suspended. I failed to mention that they are telling me I cannot verify it, and I see no verification button to press on any page but there is a blue banner that states I a postcard is being sent. the last time I received a postcard, there was a verify area to enter the code in. I hope this additional information is helpful. Thank you
