For a limited time, from now until the stroke of midnight on Friday the 15th, Google is allowing businesses to fast track Google My Business verification.
As Google says, one of the primary benefits of having a verified Google My Business listing this time of year is the ability to set special holiday hours.
Expedited verification is available to businesses in the US and Canada only, and is accomplished through filling out this form. The non-intrusive form simply asks for your name, the name of your busines, 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.
