Is there any way to get Google My Business verified more quickly?

  • I'm now managing a Google My Business listing that is not yet verified. We are waiting on a postcard that hasn't arrived yet. I know COVID is an issue but what's the best way to move this along? Is there someone at Google we can reach out to?

Answer:

If it has been more than 2 weeks since you requested, and you haven't yet received the postcard, you can use this support form. If it's been less than 2 weeks, they will ignore your submission.

And remember, you need to use a real street address, PO Boxes will always be ignored. Google has also been cracking down seriously on 'satellite offices'. Here is a quick look at those Google guidelines.
