Often, we need to review verifications. These reviews help maintain the integrity of all profiles. They can take up to seven working days.
When you’re verified, you get a notification.

Re-verify after info changes
To maintain quality business info, Google may ask a verified business to verify again. If you change some info about your business, you may need to re-verify. We might also ask you to update your business info or give more details about your business.
To re-verify, go to your verified Business Profile and follow the steps.

Instant verification methods
Rarely, we can immediately confirm that a specific Google Account owns a specific Business Profile.
If you verify your website with Google Search Console, your profile might get instant verification. Learn how to add a website property in Search Console.
· Existing Search Console user: If you verify your matching website before you add or claim your profile, no 'Get verified' prompt shows. You can immediately edit your profile and connect with customers.
· New Search Console user: If you verify your matching website after you add or claim your profile, click Get verified. Then, you can instantly edit your profile and connect with customers.
If an eligible business manages 10 or more profiles for locations of the same business, that business might be able to use bulk verification. Learn how to verify 10 or more locations in bulk.
