How to Check if your Google "My Business" Account has been Verified

Do you know how to check if your Google "My Business" Account has been verified or not?

I get this question a lot and in this tutorial, I'm going to show you a simple way to confirm the verification status of your GMB account using another free Google's verification checking tool.

Steps to Confirm your Verification Status

Step 0: Apply to have your GMB account verified

Before you begin, ensure you have applied to have your account verified through us. 

I have created a tutorial showing you how to do this here ->  How to verify your Google My Business Account without a Postcard.

You can also download the GMB Guide on that page for tips to help you optimise your GMB account.

Step 1: Visit the verification Status Checker page

Click -> https://support.google.com/business/workflow/9289460?hl=en to go to 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 it up.

Step 2: Confirm your email

Confirm that the email address you are using is associated with your 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. If you have multiple GMB accounts associated with the same email, as shown below, simply select your account of preference from the list.

Step 4:  Confirm the status of your account

The status of your account will be displayed on the screen as seen in the image below.

Conclusion

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

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