Expedite Google My Business Listing Verification
Google is working overtime before the holidays to help businesses verify their Google My Business listing, making it possible to access features such as the ability to set special holiday hours.
The expedited verification is available to businesses in the U.S. and Canada and only until Friday, Dec. 15 (2016). The form, available here, simply asks for your name, the name of your business, the city where your business is located, and the Google username associated with the business listing.
After filling out the form, the Google team will manually review it for eligibility. If eligible for verification, your business will be verified within 5 days of submitting the form. Google will either send a confirmation email if you are verified, or let you know what issues need to be addressed if not verified.
Expedited verification is not being offered for agency listings or bulk submissions.
