Google may now require some businesses to verify their identity with an additional method.
Due to the increasing amount of fraudulent Google Business profiles (Google’s business Listing, formerly called “Google My Business”), Google updated its help documents to state that it may require a business to verify themselves through multiple methods when newly registering their business listing.
When first launched, Google only had a postcard verification method with a verification code. Currently, Google offers a few methods to verify a business listing with their Google Business Profile.
Now, Google may request some businesses to use multiple methods to verify their business.
